Sandbrook Road North & South

  • Budget

Over several years Beech Consultants (BC) have assisted a developer convert two linear parcels of land either side of a railway corridor. The two areas of land were previously used as railway sidings and coal storage. One of the sites was part covered in a previously infilled reservoir used during the time of steam trains. In addition the site was also part occupied by a former petrol filling station and operating garage. The site was found to be contaminated by coal products and diesel fuels (railway land) and from spent oils/fuels and paints at the garage site.

The main elements of the commission included the following:

  • Phase I Desk Study,
  • Various intrusive Phase II and III Site Investigations,
  • Remediation Strategy, based on suitable risk assessments, was agreed with the Local Authority;,
  • Remediation of contamination hot spots identified at the site(s),
  • Geotechnical design in respect to foundations, slope stability and earthworks,
  • Various topographical and earthworks surveys to satisfy the Environment Agency in respect to the legal importation of soils to the site, under a Para 19 Exemption (Waste Management Regulations),
  • A Risk Assessment (in accordance with the Water Directive) for a mains potable water supply to the two sites.
