How BBN can help — our contaminated land management services

BBN Consulting can perform an Environmental Due Diligence (EDD) assessment to ensure you adhere to your environmental obligations. This is a simple way to determine if the land is safe to be built on. We can also provide an Environmental Site Assessment (ESA), which is completed in five stages: 

Preliminary Site Investigation (PSI) — A preliminary site investigation is a critical step in the development or remediation of a property. It is the process of gathering information about the site and its surroundings to identify any potential environmental or geotechnical hazards or risks. A preliminary site investigation typically involves conducting a thorough review of available data and records, as well as conducting field assessments and testing.

Detailed Site Investigation (DSI) — A detailed site investigation is a more comprehensive and in-depth investigation of a property than a preliminary site investigation. It is typically conducted after a preliminary site investigation has identified potential environmental or geotechnical hazards or risks and is designed to gather more detailed and specific information about these hazards or risks. A detailed site investigation may be required as part of the development or remediation of a property or to satisfy regulatory requirements.

Remediation Action Plan (RAP) — Once we’ve completed our inspection, we’ll compile a detailed report of our findings, advising you on your next steps. 

Validation sampling and report — This document details your action plan so you can get started on your build confidently. 

Classification — Our team will help you with soil and waste classification, keeping you compliant with the latest waste guidelines.


Have Questions? We’re here to help you.
What is contaminated land?
Under the Contaminated Land Management Act (1997), contaminated land is defined as land where hazardous or harmful substances are present at a high concentration, which can be toxic to a work environment if touched or inhaled. Hazardous waste can include illegal dumping and industry, chemical or oil spills.
How do I find out if the land is contaminated?
Determining the presence of land contamination should only be carried out by a certified contaminated land consultant. If you believe the land you are about to start work on or are thinking of purchasing is contaminated, BBN Consulting can help. We can perform an Environmental Due Diligence (EDD) assessment to mitigate your commercial risk and create a Remediation Action Plan (RAP) to help you clear your land of contamination.
What is the best way to manage contaminated land?
Effective contaminated land management starts with a Preliminary Site Investigation (PSI) to determine the risk of land contamination. If there is cause for concern, this is usually followed with a Detailed Site Investigation (DSI). BBN Consulting offers experienced contaminated land management advice and cost-effective solutions to clients, so they can get to work as soon as possible.
