The Partnership was involved in Soil Washing and advanced treatment of metaliferous contamination by Specific Gravity Separation, and in the remediation Project Management of former brownfield sites in the Northeast of England.
In 2001 the Partners took the decision to enlarge the practice and to expand into the full range of services of an Environmental Consultancy.

- Environmental Liability Assessments (Phases I & II)

- Remediation Programme Management
During 2001 and 2002 the Practice continued to expand and added further specialisms to the portfolio:

Founding of The LK Group
In 2003 the founding partners took the decision to convert the business into a Limited Company. Leyden Kirby Associates Limited was incorporated in June 2003 and trades as the LK Group. The company services were then substantially extended and appropriately delivered via the companies listed above. Specialist management teams have been recruited with senior management holding equity in their respective companies.
" The company believes that the opportunity to acquire some ownership of the services operated by senior management lends to strong stakeholder commitment and a powerful incentive to deliver first class services to clients"
Since our formation we have expanded our service coverage across the country with offices in Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and Brighton giving us a true national presence.
