The demand for new homes in England is outstripping supply: on average 160,000 houses have been built per year since the 1970s, a figure well below the 275,000 target required to keep pace with demand.
To tackle the problem, the Government has published the ‘Fixing our broken housing market’ white paper setting out a range of reforms to help increase the supply of new homes.
One of the reforms highlights the need to make more land available for homes in the right places, including: maximising the contribution from brownfield sites and surplus land.
As a consequence of heavy industrial use, many brownfield sites contain ‘polluted and contaminated’ soil that requires treatment to ensure it is clean and safe for any future development.
With a wealth of ‘earthworks’ and ‘value engineering’ experience, our team is well positioned to provide tailored ‘remediation solutions’ to help clients release the potential in their brownfield site.
Our land remediation solutions, include: soil excavation, treatment and reinstatement into the scheme or disposal off-site; installation of a capping layer to block the pathway with a physical layer; through to the reuse of demolition, construction and excavation waste and soil stabilisation.
We offer a ‘fully-compliant’ service that meets the latest construction and environmental legislative standards, reduces risk and provides cost savings.
