Feasibility Studies

Planning for Success


We believe taking the time to assess the most practical remediation design pays off.  Feasibility studies are frequently a necessary stage of designing a remediation scheme.  By understanding the abilities of component parts of a design in context with its environment, you are planning the success of remediation.


Restoring contaminated land is complex and each project carries different aims for clean up.  Whether the objectives of remediation are ongoing site use, corporate responsibility or sale and redevelopment, feasibility studies can help meet them. 


Studies can range from on-site testing of proposed technologies, to cost benefit analysis, to the influences of sustainable criteria on technology selection.  We use a range of techniques to identify which studies would provide measurable indicators to the success of a land remediation project. 


And the benefits? 


By establishing realisable goals, regulatory sign-off becomes more achievable.  Through pilot testing of technologies, remediation techniques are more likely to succeed.  By offsetting feasibility studies against the risks presented at implementation stage, cost and remediation overrun is less likely.


With a proven track record our clients are assured of commercially focused and technically sound solutions.
