Brownfield Site Development

In the UK a brownfield site is generally defined as “previously developed land” that has the potential for being redeveloped. It is often (but not always) land that has been used for industrial and commercial purposes, is now derelict and may have left a legacy of contamination from operational activities, migration or from waste disposal.

For any individual site the land manager or other interested person is faced with a number of key questions: Is the site contaminated? Does the contamination matter? and, if so What needs to be done about it?

Our Engineers and Scientists have extensive experience in identifying contaminated land, risk assessment, and the design and management of effective remedial measures. Many developments are subject to environmental planning conditions and our aim is to help our clients to discharge these through discussion with regulators and environmental health practitioners to obtain the required regulatory approval.

Southern Testing are continuing to work through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, including carrying out site work where it is safe to do so.

The Government have given express support to the Construction sector and have issued specific guidance for working on site. The Construction Leadership Council have also issued guidance.

We have revised our travelling and working practices to ensure that our staff are protected, and to meet the particular requirements of the guidance as well as our own risk assessments. The guidance and our working practices are under constant review.

Most site investigation work can be undertaken safely under the current restrictions.

We are committed to helping all our clients, old and new, during this difficult time. Should you have any site investigation requirements, or wish to discuss a particular project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
