Contaminated land

As well as threatening health and the environment, contamination deters investment and development. We understand the risks and liability involved and how to manage these. Our technical advice, risk assessment, and appropriate mitigation can help you find a cost-effective and safe solution that meets statutory requirements.

We assessed contaminated land risks and associated liabilities on over 150 UK sites for the Thales Group.

Developers today are challenged to accomplish cost-effective site cleanups that are consistent with future site use and existing regulations. It is essential to merge client objectives and regulatory requirements with a sound technical approach to provide remedial plans that optimize schedule and minimize costs.

Mott MacDonald offers complete site assessment, remediation, and redevelopment services from initial environmental site investigations, assessments, and characterization, through design and remediation implementation.

A specialized group of engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, GIS specialists, and environmental scientists provide these services. Close coordination and negotiation with applicable regulatory agencies are integral elements of our project approach.

Brownfield services

Mott MacDonald also provides brownfield services that go beyond obtaining grants and performing investigations. We understand the intricacies and challenges posed by brownfield sites, and have developed strategies that enable our clients to look at brownfield sites as opportunities.

Understanding the key environmental brownfield legislation and technical regulations enables us to formulate cost and time efficient redevelopment strategies tailored to client-specific situations. Our long-standing relationships with government agencies ensure that projects move smoothly through the regulatory process.
