Asbestos Contaminated Land Surveys

Asbestos contaminated land is becoming an increasingly common problem. With more and more houses being built on brownfield sites, you may need asbestos contaminated land to be remediated before development can proceed. We’re here to help you keep delays to a minimum

If you would like to find out more about any of Environtec’s services, please get in touch. With offices and laboratories across the UK, we can help you wherever you are located.

If you have a site that is known or suspected as potentially contaminated with asbestos, we can work with you and your advisers to devise an effective and practical strategy for remediation to replace the decontamination.

The first phase of investigation is a Preliminary Risk Assessment (PRA). At this stage we’ll collect and review documentary evidence using a Desk Study and Site Reconnaissance Survey (SRS).

When these are complete, we develop a Conceptual Site Model (CSM) that shapes our strategy for a field investigation. This is designed to:
  • confirm whether asbestos is present

  • quantify the amount of asbestos and ACMs present

  • classify soil waste

  • establish the distribution of asbestos (including locating any cashes)

We then design appropriate site-specific sampling and analytical strategies that ensure we adopt appropriate sampling and analytical methods for your site. Our key concern is to yield information that is fit for purpose and of a suitable quantity and quality.

Techniques for identifying asbestos at your site include grid-based inspections of individual zones, allowing us to identify areas where visible asbestos is present in surface soil. We can also create boreholes, trial pits and trenches to determine the location and extent of asbestos contamination in the ground.

If you believe your site may be contaminated, don’t wait – get in touch to find out how we can help you.
