Contaminated Land

Innovative solutions to address your issues

Sustainable Management of Contaminated Land

Through a multi-disciplinary transparent approach, combining risk based land management, balanced outcomes and impacts, Atmoterra properly assess the risks and, if required, design and supervise remediation.
We follow a stepped approach for the assessment comprising an initial desk study to determine potential historical contaminating activities, walkover survey, preliminary risk assessment, intrusive ground investigation, qualitative risk assessment through hazard, pathway, and receptor analysis.

If appropriate, Atmoterra would carry out the subsequent phases such as monitoring, quantitative risk assessment, green remediation design, supervision and verification.

At each stage of the work, Atmoterra proposes a number of solutions, taking into account their overall benefits, costs, and environmental effects, integrating the value and circumstances of the land, the community and client views.
We resource specific expertise from our extensive networks of professionals, researchers and policy makers to develop and implement tailored and sustainable solutions for our clients taking into account their specific drivers.
