Site Investigations – Confidential Site
The LK Group was commissioned to assess the site of a former industrial plant, with integrated hydroponics and aquaculture. The site presented considerable challenges relating to its former use and key risks were identified to both human health and controlled waters. As the curtain lifted on this confidential endeavour, we revealed a unique opportunity to reshape the landscape while ensuring environmental integrity.
Gained planning approval on very tight timescales
Behind the closed doors of confidentiality lay a landscape marred by industrial remnants. We leveraged our expertise to synthesize existing data, sculpting a robust site investigation blueprint. Our meticulous approach revealed key contaminants of concern, setting the stage for a pragmatic and sustainable remediation strategy.
We utilised all previous data to scope up a more robust site investigation and allow for a more realistic risk assessment. Through our detailed assessment, modelling contaminants of concern, pragmatic and sustainable remediation options and open dialogue with the regulators, we ensured that planning would be approved, allowing the first phase of development to commence.
We enabled this very challenging site to achieve planning approval on very tight timescales. The success reverberates beyond paperwork. It lays the groundwork for a transformative development that balances progress with environmental responsibility.
