Ecologia has been awarded further geo-environmental work in order to assess contamination and geotechnical at a site earmarked for residential redevelopment. The proposed development includes farmland and an active shooting range. Our work will be delineating areas which may have been impacted by these shooting activities and provide an option appraisal on the best way to mitigate potential contamination liabilities as part of the proposed development scheme in line with current guidance. This will include a number of small laboratory trials in order to assess the efficacy of compounds which may be used to stabilise any heavy metals contaminants within the soil matrix in order to reduce pollution risks. Ecologia will also carry out intrusive site investigation geotechnical work to support the design of the road infrastructure network required by the development. The on site investigation are scheduled to commence in September.
