The in-house remediation solutions provided by GCL for the treatment of contaminated soil and groundwater range from traditional civil engineering based solutions to more innovative process, chemical and biological treatment technologies.
Asbestos means risk: Health & Safety and financial. GCL by engaging the most effective techniques for asbestos removal, supported by detailed method statements designed to ensure best practice at all times, minimise our clients’ risks. We offer a dedicated experienced labour force, which is supported by the most up-to-date plant. GCL’s remediation team will manage all aspects of your project from pre-acquisition studies to HSE sign-off.
For contaminated land, GCL offers practical solutions ranging from traditional ‘dig and dump’ to In/Ex situ bioremediation and soil stabilisation. Our experienced staff deliver the optimum solution for your site, within timescale and on budget. If your project also has contaminated groundwater issues, we can devise an effective solution to ‘pump and treat’ on-site or pre-treat for off-site disposal, depending on the circumstances and contaminants encountered.
Off-site disposal is often seen as the preferred or most cost effective option. However in-situ remediation can lengthen the programme but the reduction in off-site disposal are often considerable. Examples of the technologies employed by GCL are separation of asbestos from the soil matrix, In-situ bioremediation including biosparging and bioventing and In-situ hydraulic barriers and Permeable Reactive Barriers.
GCL have the experience and personnel to purge, decommission and remove underground fuel storage tanks of any size or location. This includes hard-filled or solid tanks. Successful removal of underground tanks demands precise planning, site investigation and execution. If there has been historic leakage from any tanks we can remediate the affected areas while removing the tank. All excavations are backfilled to the clients design.
At GCL we believe a little bit of planning goes a long way. For each remediation or demolition contract undertaken we identify the waste, which will require off-site disposal, segregate it on site, using skip and bins provided by Ground Skips and dispose of the material in the most environmentally effect way.
