A one day training course that provides a practical introduction to contaminated land, the legislation surrounding it and its impacts on the design and development of construction projects.
A background to current legislation is followed by an outline of key assessment criteria for both desk study and ground investigation, including chemical analysis requirements. Risk assessment methodologies are also presented and discussed together with an outline of the remediation techniques in common use and waste management issues. Finally some thoughts on consultant selection are considered.
The course attracts a wide range of disciplines, which creates a good forum for open discussion with many perspectives being generated.
