Albion Environmental Limited is one of the UK’s leading consultants specialising in waste management, environmental, health and safety solutions. We deliver strategic advice, support and training to the waste management and construction industries in both the public and private sectors.
We understand that assessment and management of contaminated land is a complex issue and we have experience of providing support with the following:
Phase 1 Desk Studies & Phase 2 Intrusive Site Investigations
Production of Phase 1 desktop studies and Phase 2 intrusive site investigations. This allows the actual risks impacting the site to be assessed and appropriate mitigation measures to be recommended, where required.
Remedial Strategy Documents
Production of a remedial strategy document detailing full specification of the remedial works to be undertaken, remedial targets to be met and the verification procedure to be carried out.
Validation & Verification
Validation of remedial measures to ensure they have been installed in accordance with the site’s remedial strategy. This includes assessing imported soils and aggregates to ensure they are imported in accordance with We will work with site teams to ensure all parties understand validation requirements and help develop a verification programme for the project to avoid delays with hand overs.
Site Investigation Reviews
Appraisal of existing ground investigation reports to identify gaps and potential risks either at tender stage or following contract award. We aim to answer some of the key questions that are often left unanswered within the majority of Phase 2 investigations i.e. soil waste classification, potential level of landfill tax, water supply pipe specification and if there could be opportunities to reduce costs and increase environmental sustainability by reassessing the remedial strategy and reusing site won materials.
