Ecologia has been appointed by a large construction company, to prepare the remediation strategy associated with the redevelopment of a railway station . Ecologia is working closely with the stakeholders involved in the project in order to determine whether residual contamination following the completion of the infrastructure project will require further remediation works.

Although subject to permitted development rights, this is necessary in order to remove any residual liability associated with historical contamination prior to the land being handed back to its end users, as well as meeting Client’s expectations for best practice and sustainability.

The key challenge is one of integrating several contractor interfaces to deliver a remedial strategy that delivers for all phases of development within the constraints of a very confined and busy site, including tunnelling works and construction of a new railway station, electricity substation and landscaping works. Ecologia’s expertise on discrete bespoke in-situ systems is of specific value in order to design a remediation strategy minimising potential disruption to the site works and intrusion to the future users of the site.

The contract commenced in September and it is expected to be completed over a 12 months period.
