Established in November 2004, Site Assessment & Remediation (SA&R) claims to provide a fresh approach to redeveloping brownfield sites. The company takes a 'holistic approach' to projects, working with clients from initial concept through to completion.
According to SA&R director Lauren Kettridge, the introduction of the landfill directive last summer and the high disposal costs of contaminated soil has made 'dig and dump' economically unviable.
'This has led to a greater need for landowners, developers and engineers to identify the presence of any contamination and the potential risks at an early stage, ' he says.
'It is important that a suffi ciently detailed contamination investigation is undertaken by qualified and experienced environmental consultants, as inadequate investigations can lead to a poor understanding of the dynamics of a site and result in excessive remediation costs.' SA&R is offering a complete service for the investigation of contaminated land. If signifi cant contamination is encountered, SA&R can design and implement a remediation scheme that will render the site suitable for its proposed end use.
