Development of eight detached two-storey residential dwellings on a site formerly utilised for the repair and storage of vehicles. Initially, a Phase 1: Environmental Risk Assessment (deskstudy) was completed to enable the development of a Preliminary Conceptual Site Model (CSM) and risk assessment. Following the identification of plausible source-pathway-receptor pollutant linkages a Phase 2: Site Investigation was deemed necessary.
The site was historically a petrol filling station, which was being redeveloped into 16 residential dwellings with private rear gardens. CE completed a site investigation comprising of three cable percussive boreholes up to 20mbgl and installed with monitoring wells in order to assess the condition of the underlying groundwater. During the demolition works unexpected underground tanks were encountered and CE was able to mobilise quickly to sample and test the soils within the excavations in line with our remedial strategy. Validation works included the emplacement of suitable topsoil within the new residential gardens. CE held liaison in respect of the ongoing validation works with the Environment Agency, Local Planning Authority, Environmental Health Department, and the National House Building Council.
