Sudbury gasworks

Great to have been involved in this community heritage project with James Boon.

Sudbury Gasworks has now opened doors for business as Derbyshire’s newest wedding and events venue – it’s been an ambitious project, primarily funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and will breathe new life into this fantastic historic building.

What we do

Can natural, clean, soil also be contaminated?

Britain’s industrialised history means that we spend a lot of time undertaking risk assessments on pre-used land for common, industrial-related contaminants such as Arsenic, lead and other heavy metals which are toxic to human health.

Reconstruction of the River Rea

Using natural resources can be a cost-effective and sustainable way to enhance river channels, whilst also creating habitat for wildlife.

We have been supporting work on one of the largest and most significant regeneration schemes in the UK, a long-term £1 billion initiative to breathe new life into Longbridge, the former heart of British car manufacturing.
