If a site investigation indicates the presence of contaminants/pollutants that could impact negatively on human health and the wider environment, a strategy is required proposing appropriate remediation methods and techniques to remediate the contaminated areas. Remediation methods are generally categorised into ex-situ and in-situ methods. Ex-situ methods involve excavation of affected materials and subsequent treatment at the surface. In-situ methods seek to treat the contamination without removing the materials. Our experienced team of consultants have the qualifications and practical knowledge, as well as a thorough understanding of the regulatory framework, to suggest the most appropriate remediation strategy for a particular area and situation.
