Phased site investigation works were undertaken with an initial phase undertaken prior to the demolition of the former industrial buildings on site.
Localised groundwater contamination was identified associated with the former processes on site, but through further targeted investigation it was proved that this did not pose a risk to the adjacent river.
Following the demolition of the industrial buildings and a phase of earthworks the site was deemed suitable for the development of houses.
By developing a full understanding of the contamination risks through well designed site investigation the need for unnecessary and costly groundwater remediation was eliminated saving the client c. £100,000.00
