Projects underway

The UXO Forum
This project has been designed to bring real change to the industry through a series of events and other tools.
 
Asbestos from soil site management aid
This project will produce the first UK interactive aid/tool in smart phones or tablets for ground workers and other site workers dealing with asbestos contaminated materials on site.
 
Innovative site investigation hub
This project will keep contaminated land practitioners, regulators and other stakeholders up-to-date with latest development, understand the benefits and limitations, theory and practical, safe and cost effective application of these new approaches
 
Copy of UXO through the Construction Cycle – A good practice guidance and toolbox talks
This project will provide training materials for site operatives and ground workers to manage UXOs more efficiently in land projects
 
E-training for asbestos on soil
This project will develop an e-training programme to support professionals dealing with or managing asbestos in soils.
 
Retrofitting hazardous ground gas protection measures for developments
Hazardous ground gases can cause serious problems to construction developments, particularly existing buildings. With an average life of more than 100 years for residential developments in this country, many may not have gas protective measures in p
 

Project proposals

P3131 - Perfluorinated alkylated substances (PFAS) in brownfield sites
This project will produce guidance to improve awareness and understanding of PFAS and legislations, helping practitioners to understand their responsibilities and liabilities as well as support them in managing risk.
 
P3202 - Good practice on the use of geophysics in site investigation
Practitioners need to keep up to date with the latest developments, and clients look for case studies that will allow them to have confidence in the geophysics techniques that are and can be useful (if so which ones) for their projects and meet thei
 
P3190 eTraining for hazardous ground gas
Hazardous ground gases is a major problems to many brownfield sites. However it is probably an area where there are many guidance and training available.
 
P3177 Extreme climate incidents and contaminated land interest group
The question is ‘Will extreme climate incidents have any impact on the way that we currently reuse brownfield sites particularly those that are contaminated?’
 
P3077 - Effective innovative remediation approaches for contaminated land
This project will update C549 explain how to design and implement innovative land remediation technologies using a series of case studies.
 
P3185 A site guide for managing ground gas protection systems
Hazardous ground gases can cause serious problems to residential, industrial and commercial developments. However there are still cases where such systems were not installed or managed properly, this is partly because some of these documents are big
 
P3078 - Sustainable management of waste soils and aggregates
This project looks to develop an interactive document which will look at the site activity in question, contain useful information and highlight areas of common mistakes/confusion.
