Remediation of major strategic site

In 2016 we were asked to assist Blu 3 in preparing a major strategic site in Luton, UK for mixed-use development. The site was part of the former Vauxhall Motors factory and had been in use for vehicle manufacture from 1905. The area of the site covered 14ha.

Assistance was first given at tender stage when it was noted that earlier investigations had omitted to consider the presence of asbestos.

Detailed investigations were carried out to fill the data gap and this allowed our client to confirm its bid to reprofile and remediate the site prior to development. We filled the role of Environmental Engineer, designing and directing the earthworks, producing the geotechnical specifications and preparing validation reports on the conclusion of works.
