The development of any site can pose a range of potential opportunities and risks. Contamination and geotechnical hazards can present significant risk burden. Risk assessment is used to identify and evaluate unacceptable risks associated with contamination and geotechnics and the potential impact to a site or planned redevelopment. We can provide you with robust qualitative and quantitative assessments and pragmatic solutions based on many years of experience, including developing national published technical guidance.
Where preliminary and generic risk assessment identifies a potentially unacceptable contamination risk, CGL has specialist in-house geoenvironmental staff capable of undertaking detailed quantitative risk assessment modelling in relation to sensitive receptors, including human health and controlled waters. Where ground gas is of concern, we are able to offer advice and risk assessment with bespoke protection and measuring solutions where appropriate. Our robust risk assessment approach has demonstrated that sites previously believed to require significant remediation can often be developed with reduced intervention.
We are mindful to consider your legal obligations and commercial objectives before recommending remediation and significant clean-up, and in our advice, seek to achieve a value added solution within set timescales satisfying key stakeholders, including investors, the Local Authority and the Environment Agency.
