Planning for flexibility: a case study in creating robust remediation designs that can handle the realities onsite
In this webinar, organised by the East Land Quality Forum (ELQF), Jack Shore the District Manager for the UK and Scandinavia at REGENESIS discusses the remedial activities at a historic former timber yard. The site was impacted with high levels of petroleum hydrocarbons and a mixture of pentachlorophenol, trimethyl tin and pesticides (lindane, dieldrin and aldrin, amongst others). The timber yard had been demolished in the 1980s and an office facility was built. Due to divestment, the office parks owner wished to remediate the site before the sale. An integrated remediation strategy was devised to accelerate close out.
