Anglesey remediation works sensitivity recognised

The certificate was awarded as part of the Considerate Constructors scheme, which recognises environmental protection and respect shown for the community, among other factors.

The remediation of legacy contamination from the gardens of 16 residential properties on the site of former copper smelting and chemical works has involved:

  • clearance of garden areas
  • excavation, segregation, and clearance of contaminated soils
  • importing clean aggregates and soil
  • turfing, seeding, and planting
  • building paths, patios and hardstandings for sheds and greenhouses
  • and retaining existing garden features

"Protecting the environment is exceptional on this site [and] the awareness of the environment at company level has produced systems which are carried out by the site team to give a result that is sometimes only seen on very high value and profile projects," notes the Considerate Contractor Monitor. "Excellent safety systems are in place and being operated on site."

The works are due to be completed in April.
