Our Key Services

We offer the full range of brownfield remediation services to address all contamination issues.

Based on our technical expertise of contaminated land problems and practical site enabling work experience, we offer a free-of-charge, no-obligation, pre-acquisition appraisal for all brownfield schemes.

Our appraisals are supported by an in-house understanding of environmental and engineering risks enabling us to provide Guaranteed Maximum Remedial Priced solutions, thereby removing your risk of unforeseen contamination and unaccounted remediation abnormals.

Co-ordinated Material Management Planning  helps maximise the re-use of site won materials during the construction phase to further reduce development abnormals.


With our extensive in-house experience of both in-situ and ex-situ treatment technologies our remedial strategy designs are practical and provide the most cost effective solutions, whilst still being robust enough to secure regulatory approval.

This means coupled with our demolition, waste management and enabling works capabilities we can be flexible in our approach, thereby ensuring that we utilise the most appropriate technologies to provide our clients a bespoke solution for individual sites.

We utilise 3D ground and contamination modelling to enhance material management plans and optimise on-site earthworks management.


In accordance with our clients requirements we deliver the majority of our works through all-risk design and build contracts acting as Principal Contractor for demolition, remediation and site re-engineering works.

Our turnkey solutions provide both environmental and geotechnical verification of earthworks to development platform level, delivered with 3D GPS technology to ensure safe working  and quality assurance.

With remediation focused site and contract management we ensure timely validation of works and maintenance of good relationships with all project stakeholders.
