Hazardous Materials Abatement

What materials are classed as hazardous?  The regulations surrounding the classification of hazardous materials differ from country to country but we have specialists around the world experienced in the management and resolution of the complicated risks surrounding hazardous materials.


We design economic and pragmatic remediation solutions that work first time.


Taking a fresh approach


We approach each and every project without preconceptions.  We evaluate data and identify options which gives us the ability to provide reliable budget costing.  We welcome the opportunity to become involved as early as possible in any projects.  This way, we can design commercially feasible schemes which work for all stakeholders, the environment and neighbours. 


We use the extensive on-site knowledge of our remediation contractors to share best practice around the world.   This allows us to innovate with our approach to the techniques we use to remediate contaminated land.  We design solutions using the most appropriate technologies.  This might be the most efficient, the most sustainable, the least costly. 


Whether we are managing sub-contractors or using our in-house team, we maintain excellent working relationships with Regulatory Authorities.  We have extensive experience in the implementation of non intervention strategies, derivation of site specific remedial targets and agreement of licensing requirements.


We take Health & Safety very seriously..


When dealing with hazardous contamination safety must come first. Our stringent health and safety measures ensure the smooth completion of the project, the protection of equipment, and of course the protection of our clients, any third parties on site, and our own staff.  We take health and safety very seriously and are delighted to have won awards recognising our efforts.
