Elliott Environmental Surveyors work with clients and regulators to achieve cost effective solutions to contaminated land problems. As Chartered Environmental Surveyors, we are uniquely positioned to give high quality strategic advice to clients on the environmental aspects of property ownership and development. Our advice is tailored to the needs of our client and is designed to maximise the investment value of the land or property.
Planners and regulators require contamination issues to be addressed in order to satisfy or pre-empt planning conditions. Desktop studies (Stage 1 risk assessments) or site investigations (Stage 2) are frequently involved. EES are highly experienced in this work and are able to carry out the full range of site investigations to fulfil the demands of the regulator. We carry out both qualitative and quantitative risk assessments and provide our findings in...
We make use of a full range of investigation methods to provide information for environmental risk assessments. This includes trial pits, boreholes and groundwater and gas monitoring. Full soil and groundwater chemical analysis is also available, as is gas monitoring and gas testing, all within appropriate accreditation.
Knowledge of the type and extent of any contamination and the potential cost of remediation can be vital in land negotiations and project budgeting. We use a range of desktop and site investigation techniques to gauge the extent of environmental liabilities and to provide estimates of likely costs. We can...
Where contamination has been found, we are able to design and project manage cost effective risk management and remediation strategies. We use the latest technologies to deliver effective solutions, take into account the practical needs of the developer, satisfy the requirements of the regulator and enable the development project to progress smoothly.
When refurbishment or demolition of existing buildings is required, a Refurbishment/Demolition (formerly Type 3) asbestos survey is required in order to identify the presence and volume of asbestos-containing materials which need to be removed. We offer these surveys using experienced surveyors in accordance with HSG264 guidance, and can advise on waste management issues stemming from asbestos removal.
We carry out protected species surveys of Bats, Owls, Badgers, Great Crested Newts and Water Voles for all types of development sites including housing. We also design mitigation measures and provide practical advice on their implementation.
We have 25 years experience of monitoring the environmental aspects of development sites, during the development phase and after care periods. We work hard to maintain the trust of the client, site personnel and regulators to keep projects on track.
Asbestos was once seen as the ideal building material but now it is recognised as one of the most dangerous risks to health. Since 2004 the owners of all commercial premises have been obliged to have a plan of their buildings showing the location of any asbestos, and information about how to manage it together with the precautions that have to be taken by anyone working near it.
