ASL operated as geo-environmental consultants for this brownfield redevelopment of a former fuel depot in Nuneaton. Hydrocarbon contamination was contained at the site within a concrete bunded area that had been filled with demolition rubble and soils.
A systematic remediation exercise was required to remove impacted soils whilst recovering suitable material for reuse on site. The site is proposed to be redeveloped for a residential end use comprising residential apartments.
The works completed by ASL comprise the following:
Assessment of the site’s history and environmental setting
A site wide intrusive investigation
Construction of groundwater monitoring wells
Design of chemical testing regime to characterise the site conditions and investigate potential contamination issues
Interpretation and quantitative assessment of results for contamination issues
Design and implementation of a remediation strategy and environmental monitoring programme for the site
Liaison with regulatory authorities to obtain sign off of the relevant planning conditions
