Land Remediation

Bagnall UK specialise in the controlled excavation and removal of land which has been contaminated with asbestos or any other hazardous material. We are one of a very few companies in the UK to have directly-employed plant operators who are trained and experienced in working with buried asbestos.

As more and more organisations are building on brownfield sites in the UK, hidden or buried asbestos in the ground is becoming an increasing risk. Establishing if a site is contaminated with asbestos containing materials is an essential part of brownfield development.

Previous focus of asbestos identification and practice has been aimed at the management of asbestos contamination within buildings. However results from thousands of investigations at contaminated sites across the UK have found that asbestos is frequently identified hidden in the ground. 

Bagnall UK have considerable knowledge of ‘CIRIA C733 Asbestos in soil and made ground: a guide to understanding and managing risks (2014)’ and can provide a full service in the identification of asbestos contaminated land, assessing and managing the risk while removing under fully controlled conditions.
