Contaminated Site Assessment and Remediation

Land is a valuable resource, the condition of which can be significantly affected by its current and historic uses. The presence of contaminated dusts, soil and groundwater on a site can have an adverse effect on human health and the wider environment, as well as creating potential liabilities for the owner. Contract Environmental can help solve these problems.

Contaminated land advice is generally sought:

  • When potential purchasers/investors wish to gain reassurance that the land they are buying is not contaminated and that they will not incur large scale remediation costs;
  • when reference data is required to prove the condition of the land prior to leasing for industrial, commercial or other uses; and
  • when landowners/developers propose to change the current land use to a more sensitive one e.g. industrial or commercial use to residential use.

This specialist advice requires a dedicated team of experts in a diverse set of technical fields. At Contract Environmental, our team has the knowledge of policy, procedure and regulatory interpretation to back up technical expertise and experience in dealing with a broad range of contaminated land issues.

Our high quality desk studies, soil and groundwater investigations and risk assessments form the basis of a comprehensive understanding of the site in question helping us determine the most practical and cost effective way forward.

Based on the recommendations arising from the investigation phase, Contract Environmental can offer a wide range of remediation options for contaminated sites.
