Inherited pollution is found on contaminated sites where changes in the soil caused by the storage of waste or by the handling of environmentally hazardous materials pose a risk of harm to individuals or the public at large.
Consequently, former industrial and commercial facilities are often suspected of being contaminated in such a way. Such sites are difficult to assess as a result. To provide property owners and investors with certainty in planning, and to advise them in good time of their potential remediation obligations, and of the associated cost risks, we offer a professional pollution investigation service. Where required, we will carry out all the necessary planning of building demolition, site clearance and pollution remediation works.
