IBEX CE have a broad range of experience with current guidelines and legislation requirements for contaminated land risk assessments regarding the protection of end users, construction workers, designated aquifers, controlled waters and the environment.
If/where the initial Phase 1 Desk Study has revealed the need for an intrusive investigation, our intrusive investigations are designed and executed on a site-specific basis.
The geochemical testing results and ground gas rates are assessed by our consulting engineer(s) in accordance with CIRIA C665, BS 8485:2015, BS 8576:2013 and a quantitative risk assessment determines whether remedial measures are required or not.
If/where required, a remediation options appraisal is undertaken at this stage and remediation method statements are prepared.
