Nicholls Colton – Contaminated Land

Contaminated Land Investigation

The potential for contaminated land to be present on a proposed development site, or at an existing land-holding, is something that can all too easily cause problems. Determining whether contamination is present, and if so, understanding the nature, severity and impact that it may have, can be critical.

Nicholls Colton Group has been providing contaminated land advice to its clients for nearly 40 years.

Working closely with house builders, local authorities, contractors, private individuals and commercial developers, we have helped our clients to define, understand and overcome their many and varied contaminated land issues.

Our contaminated land team includes a Registered SiLC (Specialist in Land Condition) with 30 years experience, and a Director and Principal Engineer who each have 20 years or more experience. With a support team comprising a healthy mix of engineers and geologists, all of whom are experienced in contaminated land work, Nicholls Colton Group is able to provide speedy, bespoke, pragmatic and cost effective advice.

Particularly advantageous for our clients is Nicholls Colton Group’s in-house testing facility.

If the analysis of site samples is required, Nicholls Colton Group’s fully equipped *UKAS accredited testing laboratory No. 0320 and *MCERTS  accredited laboratory undertakes a wide range of contaminated land tests, servicing our contaminated land team directly. Samples collected by our Geo-environmental staff are taken directly to our laboratory for testing.
