The risk presented by high rates of hazardous ground gas emissions into structures is well documented and means of monitoring and assessing this risk are set out in both BS 8576:2013 and CIRIA C665...
Over the past year, our Technical Director Mike Plimmer has delivered a range of presentations at conferences organised by EPUK, RICS and the Geological Society. Mike specialises in the development of risk assessment models for contaminated land remediation and in the classification and re-use of construction waste; he leads GEA’s contaminated land team and has over 30 years’ experience in geotechnical and contaminated land projects.
The Association of Geotechnical & Geoenvironmental Specialists (AGS) has recently published guidance on the classification of waste soils (as either hazardous or non-hazardous) with the intention of providing simplified guidance for the sampling and classification of waste soils on straightforward sites.
