Our Team

The senior members of our team have specialised in the field of remediation and have extensive knowledge and hands-on experience of delivering complex projects on-time and within budget.

In addition to their contracting expertise, the key members of the DB Remediation team have, during their careers, gained many years’ experience of undertaking remedial designs in large multi-discipline consultancies, and as such hold the appropriate professional qualifications. This in-house knowledge enables us to technically review all site data for preparation of risk-based remedial strategies and robust, deliverable site enabling solutions.
