The Avenue, Chesterfield’s former coking works, gets a facelift

It was one of the most polluted sites in Western Europe. Thanks to SUEZ’s intervention, this industrial wasteland, which had formerly seen coal and then coking works, has been completely sanitised and cleaned. The owner’s project consisted of providing the inhabitants of Chesterfield in the UK with a site for activities, leisure and housing, as well as a base for small and medium-sized businesses
