Remediation of Contaminated Land & Groundwater

£1.2m Savings from NISP construction collaboration

The Challenge

The brief given to ATG Group was to reduce costs by diverting excavated material from landfill. The client was looking at a bill in excess of £1.8m to deal with the contaminated soils as specified by their consultant. ATG Group look at bringing the best available technology to the project without excessive costs.

The Solution

ATG Group’s approach was to undertake a full examination of all reports and findings and agree a strategy to deal with the 37,728 tonnes of material requiring removal.

Of the 37,728 tonnes of material requiring removal:

  • 20,340 tonnes of material went to our recycling facility where it was tested, processed and returned as inert fill.
  • 4500 tonnes was disposed of as it could not be recycled.
  • 12,888 tonnes was inert and used as fill under an NIEA exemption at another site owned by the client.
