Brownfield sites often carry the burden of historical land use, including potential spillages and leaking storage tanks.
Brownfield sites are often located in up and coming urban and suburban areas, however there is often an element of worry in purchasing such a site for redevelopment.
Dealing with historic contamination is entirely possible, not necessarily time-intensive, and is often a very cost effective method of adding well located, prime real estate to your portfolio.
The Abricon team combine technical expertise with a strong regulatory background, and have extensive experience, both within the UK and on overseas projects.
We understand both the technical and regulatory aspects of land contamination, and will offer a completely tailored solution to your contaminated land problems.
We can assist with pre-acquisition desk studies, letting you know what kind and intensity of works a site is likely to require, and can continue right through to planning and commencing complex remediation projects - no matter how big or how small your site!
Specialist Skills and Capabilities
We have the skills and knowledge to deal with a wide range of contaminants, including heavy metals, petroleum and oil based products, chlorinated solvents, PCBs, pesticides, explosives and much more.
We also have extensive experience dealing with disused filling stations and sites with above or underground storage tanks: we can project manage the initial site investigation, full decommissioning and removal of the tanks and their infrastucture, and provide demolition services for the other filling station structures and infrastructure.
We also provide cost effective solutions for both the investigation and remediation of commercial and domestic oil spills. It essential that these are dealt with quickly to prevent pollution of surface and groundwater resources, which may lead to prosecution and a heavy fine on top of clean-up costs.
