Contamination Assessments and Remediation

Contamination assessments can range from environmental due diligence (also known as a desktop study) to identify if past or present potential contaminating activities have occurred at your site. We recommend this as a pre-purchase due diligence check to save clients from the acquisition of a legacy of contamination, which can affect the intended future land use or even require expensive cleanup at the new owners cost. Remediation of contamination can be costly, especially if it is an inherited issue or contamination has migrated off-site such as in groundwater. Our team will focus accurately using an intrusive sampling of soil, groundwater and soil vapour to determine whether contamination exists at a property which could impact upon its current or future use.
