Contaminated Land Assessment

Identifying Potential Risks of Contamination


There is now a requirement by many Local Planning Authorities to provide a Contamination Risk Assessment to ensure that the land being developed does not suffer from contamination. These reports will include a site walkover to provide a risk assessment of which will hopefully confirm there is no risk of contamination.


Our experienced team of engineers will recover samples and send them to a laboratory to be checked, which will then allow identification of any contamination and provide our engineers with the information needed to examine what the next steps may be. 

Contamination Risk Assessment


Contamination Risk Assessment is a requirement for many Local Authorities for some potential building sites. Initially a walkover assessment is undertaken, followed by recovery of soil samples, if found necessary, by trial pit or borehole excavation.

Laboratory testing of samples will then identify any contaminates and the way forward considered and advised.
