Geo-Environmental undertook an investigation on behalf of Brighton & Hove City Council for a proposed redevelopment in Brighton. The proposed small scale development comprised the demolition of an existing structure and replacement with a new building on a similar footprint. The project initially comprised a limited ground investigation to assess the geotechnical parameters of the soils for foundation design and soakage potential. Based on the sites historical usage, there was no reason to suspect any significant contamination, and therefore only limited chemical testing was undertaken. The findings of the investigation revealed a localised area of Benzo(a)pyrene contamination and potentially more widespread Lead contamination with respect to the sites proposed end-use. Geo-Environmental recommended field analysis using portable X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) equipment and UV Fluorescence equipment to delineate the Lead and Benzo(a)pyrene in-situ.
