Contaminated Land Assessment

The assessment and regeneration of contaminated land is critical to land use planning and environmental protection objectives. Harrison Group offers a comprehensive service for the investigation, assessment and remediation of contaminated land in the UK and overseas.

Phase one: Desk studies

Desk studies are crucial in identifying potential hazards such as mining, landfill operations, nearby pollution incidents, naturally occurring radon gas and potentially contaminating land use. They also help to understand the wider environmental setting of the site so that potential receptors to contamination, such as groundwater, are identified.

Phase two: Contaminated land investigations

The information gathered during the desk study is used to design the intrusive investigation of potential issues, to further assess risk (based upon in-situ and field testing) and to develop remediation strategies, if required.
