We were contacted to give consultancy advice on the suitability of topsoil for proposed Addlestone Town Centre Development after concerns were expressed by a stakeholder.
On visiting the site variation in the colour and texture of the topsoil was noted. Samples were taken to be tested and compared to guideline values. A report produced detailing the suitability of the topsoil on site and after some discussion by all parties an outcome satisfactory to all was achieved.
Osborne Ltd won the Westminster City Council tender for this project and employed GO Contaminated Land Solutions to conduct additional testing and investigate some unexpected contamination identified on site. A remediation strategy was then prepared and a verification report will be completed to ensure that the site is suitable for its intended use.
The site lies in the Little Venice ward of Edgware Rd. The development will provide 45 residential units over five storeys with a range of social and private housing together with and improved landscaped garden for residents.
Instructed by: Calford Seaden
A phase 1 environmental report and a phase 2 geo-environmental investigation was undertaken.
The project was the redevelopment of mixed commercial and residential premises to a six storey residential development over ground floor retail space in Forest Gate.
No significant sources of contamination were identified in the phase 1 report and the phase 2 investigation was used to inform foundation and pile design.
We were instructed to complete a phase 2 intrusive investigation and develop a sampling strategy and in due course undertake verification.
The site had previously been an army barracks in Hampshire and is to be redeveloped in to residential homes with private gardens. The development is part of a complex, £1bn, multi-partner, 15-year collaborative and transformational place-making programme to transform the area from ‘garrison town to green town’ by 2030.
An intrusive investigation had already been completed, GO Contaminated Land Solutions developed a sampling strategy and conducted further investigation to determine the extent of contamination and inform a remediation strategy.
Provide our client with a Phase 4: Verification Report in order to demonstrate that remediation measures have been completed.
