We provide specialist advice and support in all areas of Contaminated Land Management.
A contamination risk assessment will initially involve an element of desk-based research, making reference to resources such as historical Ordnance Survey mapping and Local Authority searches. The findings of this initial Phase 1 Desk Study or Preliminary Risk Assessment (PRA) will be used to inform the design of the subsequent intrusive ground investigation works. In conjunction with an intrusive ground investigation, we offer an interpretative reporting service to provide contaminated land risk assessments to gauge the significance of risks posed by a range of geohazards, including:
The outcome of the contamination risk assessment will typically be used to establish whether measured levels of contamination present a significant risk of harm to human health, or a potential risk to the surrounding natural environment. Our specialist team will adopt a practical and pragmatic approach to the assessment, considering the sensitivity of the surrounding environment and the scale of the project, in an effort to provide cost-effective solutions to any contaminated land issues. Subject to the findings of an assessment of this type, further advice and assistance can be provided with:
