Leigh Anne Cammack


Leigh Anne graduated from the University of Sunderland in 2002 where she gained a first class honours degree in Engineering Geology.  During her studies she spent a year working for the Ministry of Defence as part of a multidisciplinary team involved in Phase I Desk Study Land Quality Assessments on sites within the RAF retained estate.

On graduating from university Leigh Anne joined WSP Remediation Ltd as an Environmental Consultant working on contaminated land projects.  Here she carried out Phase I and Phase II Contaminated Land Surveys on various projects including, former gas work sites, petrol filling stations and landfill sites throughout the UK.  Her role later developed into site management of both small and large scale remediation projects, including soil vapour extraction (SVE), dual phase vacuum extraction and excavation/landfill disposal.   

Leigh Anne joined Ecologia in 2006 as an Environmental Consultant/Project Manager and subsequently as a Senior Project Manager overseeing a multidisciplinary team of seven personnel.  Her role involves management of both small and large scale projects from the design proposal stage, site investigation, implementation of remediation, through to regulatory sign off.

Leigh Anne’s experience includes comprehensive Phase 1 Desk Study Land Quality Assessments, often involving detailed research, and extensive intrusive site investigation works on a variety of contaminated land sites including former gas works on behalf of National Grid Property Holdings Ltd.  Her remediation experience includes projects involving both soil and groundwater remediation and working as a Contractor (both Principal Contractor and Specialist Sub-contractor) and Remediation Consultant.

Projects Leigh Anne has managed include demolition and remediation of a former paint stripping and coating factory, remediation of smaller domestic properties subsequent to impact from kerosene heating oil leaks and the remediation of a large site in North London involving a number of remediation technologies (Soil Vapour Extraction (SVE), Ozone Sparging, Ex-Situ Bioremediation and Radio Frequency (RF) Soil Heating, to enhance the SVE).  The latter project in North London was awarded the Brownfield Briefing Award 2010 for the Best Combination of Remedial Techniques.

More recently, Leigh Anne has managed a remediation and de-watering system on a former gas works site near Kings Cross, London.  Works included dewatering of gasholders prior to excavation, reduction of VOC emissions through Soil Vapour Extraction and additional odour mitigation measures for temporary excavation and stockpiling of heavily contaminated soils on-site.

Leigh Anne’s Project Management work also includes a recent large-scale remediation consultancy project in Suffolk.  Works included extensive liaison with the Regulators to agree Site Specific Remedial Target Values, Remediation Strategy and agreement of material re-use.  Comprehensive validation of remedial works and reporting within tight deadlines to enable areas of planned infrastructure and retail development to proceed before the completion of the overall site.  Subsequently the project has involved extensive investigation works and remediation appraisals of unforeseen asbestos soil contamination.  In addition, obtaining agreement with the regulators for the asbestos contamination to be treated on-site avoiding expensive off-site disposal costs.

Leigh Anne was promoted to director in January 2015.
