Brownfield development often means having to deal with contamination of some sort and the first thing any developer wants to know is how much is it going to cost to bring a site in line with regulatory requirements and how quickly they can have the information.
Our Land Quality Teams, which include two Government registered SiLCs (Specialists in Land Condition), have built a reputation for efficiency, speed of delivery, quality of work and for finding cost effective remediation solutions.

Our land quality and geotechnical specialists work to ensure that any brownfield development minimises disposal to landfill, maximises re-use of arisings and site-won materials and uses the least intrusive and impacting remediation methodologies. Two of Hydrock's projects were selected by WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) as part of their 'Halving Waste to Landfill' initiative as best practice examples for a document entitled 'Resource Efficient Remediation' which outlines how savings can be achieved through remediation and onsite reuse of contaminated material. Hydrock is a member and sponsor of CL:AIRE, an independent organisation that promotes sustainable remediation and worked with CL:AIRE to develop their 'Definition of Waste' Code of Practice.
"To the very last man on the ground, the Hydrock staff have been excellent. Hartwell are extremely pleased with the remedial works being undertaken."
