Asbestos in Soils

To reinforce our position in the land remediation market, the industry has been issued with new guidance for dealing with asbestos in soils and made ground; CIRIA Document No C733 was issued in March 2014. The guidance provides information for clients, landowners, developers and their advisors, regulators and other stakeholders on the safe mitigation, assessment and remediation of soil and made ground contaminating materials.

The guidance relates to activities governed by Regulation 16 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR), Construction Design and Management Regulations 2007 (CDM) and the Health and Safety at Work act 1974 (HSWA). The LK Group is conversant with the these guidelines and we are regularly undertaking contracts that comply with the latest guidance. Due to our historic experience of dealing with asbestos in buildings and in soil remediation strategies, we are in a very strong position to manage the impact that the CIRIA C733 guidance will have on your project.
