2006 – Producing Successful Soils Gas Remediation

Council Tip Redevelopment, Hampshire

25 controversial new houses, alongside protected Stanpit Marsh Nature Reserve near Christchurch, had to maintain the integrity of a precious SSSI buffer strip and wildlife corridor, demanded by planners.

Following multi-phase investigation, Intégrale designed remediation to ensure remnant methane and noxious gases are safely vented through external pavements and prevented from entering new homes; a cover system protects occupants from contaminated fills. A 5-year monitoring programme was successfully completed following occupation.
