Remediation Strategy – South-East England

Ground and ProjeGround and Project Consultants were instructed to develop a Remediation Strategy for a commercial development in South-East England.

The site and surrounding area had a long industrial history of manufacturing works and other potentially contaminative industries. A ground investigation conducted on the site identified the widespread presence of asbestos and exceedances of soil and groundwater contaminant screening criteria for the proposed land end use.

GPCL derived a Remediation Strategy which included installation of an engineered cover system in landscaped areas to eliminate the risk to human health receptors. As part of the Remediation Strategy, the management of asbestos risk during construction in line with Control of Asbestos Regulations (2012) was carried out.

GPCLs work on the project is still ongoing and we continue to provide our expert advice.
