Metech was engaged by a private company who had obtained development consent for a residential development in the Sutherland Shire, NSW subject to compliance with the consent conditions. A detailed site investigation was required to meet the consent conditions. Metech undertook a site inspection and the main potential source of contamination was observed as asbestos containing materials in soils. Metech returned to the site to complete soil sampling adjacent to the potential contamination sources.
Soil sample results indicated the presence of asbestos in soils and remediation was required to ensure the site was suitable for the proposed residential use. Metech prepared a Remediation Action Plan and undertook remediation of the site in accordance with the Plan. The final Detailed Site Investigation Report, Remediation Action Plan and Validation Report were submitted to Council to meet the consent conditions. The Validation Report concluded the site was suitable for the proposed residential land use allowing the client to progress with the re-development of the site.
If you require a preliminary site investigation and/or detailed site investigation or advice regarding contamination to meet development consent conditions, contact an expert at Metech.
