Scope of Works

  • Remediation covered a 7 hectare site which had been contaminated by hydrocarbons from its former industrial use of several oil mills, a plate glass works and a number of food and timber processing plants.
  • We excavated five thousand cubic metres of material which was treated on site using bio remediation techniques and then re-deposited.
  • Thirty five thousand cubic metres of concrete aggregate was removed during the excavation and crushed on site, this then being used to construct piling mats and rigs for the next phase of building.
  • The existing river wall also needed some investigation into its condition and safety.


  • All soil tests and necessary paperwork were approved and the site deemed clean of all contaminates.
  • The work was carried out within its 26 week time frame and within budget, enabling the next phase of construction to commence on time.
