Enabling the redevelopment of land affected by historical contamination and waste disposal: two case studies, Ipswich

About this event

This talk explores two case studies for sites that have undergone remediation by Vertase FLI Ltd to enable their redevelopment for a residential end use.

The first site is a former pesticide factory in Hauxton, where the source of contamination comprised historical leaks, spills and releases of pesticide products into the subsurface between the 1940s and its eventual closure in 2004.

The second site is a former landfill in Bristol, where the source of contamination comprised 60,000m3 of commercial/industrial waste buried within a former valley during the 1980s and 90s.

At both sites, the sources of contamination would have posed unacceptable risks of harm to future site users and pollution to the environment without the remediation measures implemented by Vertase FLI Ltd. In addition to the management of risks posed by contamination to future receptors, the remediation works were also designed to culminate in the creation of geotechnically suitable development platforms for use by follow-on contractors during the construction phase of the residential development.
