Asbestos Contaminated Land Remediation
Experience and knowledge gleaned from previous groundworks and redevelopment projects has determined that many brownfield sites contain asbestos at a level above the Hazardous Waste Threshold and this can lead to subsequent inadvertent exposure of site personnel and substantial delays to construction projects through unplanned and unforeseen remediation works. Since the 1990s quantitative methods – using polarised light microscopy – have been developed to measure the asbestos fibre content within a soil sample. Currently, this process is undertaken to determine the land’s classification as Hazardous or Non-Hazardous in order to form a basis of planning and future use.
It is essential that you have a thorough Ground Investigation Report compiled prior to planning any form of redevelopment of brownfield sites.
