Land Remediation

Definition of Remediation: 

‘the action of remedying something, in particular of reversing or stopping environmental damage’; ‘to heal or cure’; ‘to correct something that is wrong or damaged or to improve a bad situation’.

John F Hunt Remediation offers a complete range of remediation contracting, having the expertise and experience in technology driven 'in-situ' remediation and earthworks with 'ex-situ' treatment.

We have been engaged in remediation projects ranging from £50K to £24 million and by accessing the strong capability within the wider John F Hunt Group we can also provide asbestos clearance, demolition, dismantling and heavy plant, all from a single point of contact.  

What Remediation Means To You...

We recognise that for many of our client’s remediation means different things.  To some it may comprise the removal of hot-spots of contaminated soils, or a fully automated groundwater treatment process; to you remediation may involve a wider package of works including demolition, obstruction removal and the installation of roads and sewers.  We understand that the overlapping of skill sets are essential for successful project delivery.

Over the years our remediation team has developed, to ensure your aims and objectives are always delivered to a consistently high standard across all sectors, this has required John F Hunt to respond to differing procurement strategies.

We have accomplished Certification to ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems, ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems & BS OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. This achievement is the result of the strategic foresight of Top Management, coupled with the commitment, expertise and professionalism of the entire Remediation Team.  

Active CL:AIRE Members 

As a further demonstration of our standards and capability, we are a leading member of CL:AIRE (Contaminated Land: Applications in Real Environments), meaning we are committed to the use of the principals of sustainability and up to date guidance. In addition, members of our team have authored CL:AIRE publications and been involved in new guidance development.

The full range of remediation contracting expertise within our organisation enables us to execute large projects as well as more modest work and allows us to offer sustainable, well managed works within a wide variety of contractual environments.

We undertake work on the following procurement routes, which include but are not limited to:

  • Framework Contracts                        
  • Traditional Contracts
  • Design and Build                                
  • Contractors all risk design and build
  • Open book                                          
  • Target cost & shared risk
  • Fixed Price                                         
  • Unified Approach

We offer you a comprehensive service where all parts of the John F Hunt Group work together within an integrated project team to deliver a complete project solution.

In addition to cost minimisation and savings, this benefits you by ensuring integration, therefore reducing critical interfaces, consolidating responsibility and significantly lowering risk levels.

We are able to adapt to your individual requirements and are very open to assist in the development of project procurement plans. John F Hunt has a demonstrable track record of delivering projects by this route.
