When developing or redeveloping a brownfield site, issues arising from previous site uses can have serious implications for the project
Brownfield sites may present problems such as buried structures, underground storage tanks, waste arisings, soil and groundwater contamination.
Unless these issues are promptly and efficiently dealt with, development may be disrupted and the sale of properties or the occupation of the site may be delayed. With appropriate management however, a brownfield site may be successfully redeveloped and turned into a real asset.
Abricon provides the full range of services to efficiently deal with the problematic brownfield sites.
