Former Fuel Depot, Nuneaton

Site name  Former Fuel Depot, Nuneaton

Area  0.2 Hectares

Development  Residential

Role  Environmental Consultants

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
