Provectus completed a design and build fixed price enabling works package at a city centre location in Coventry

A variety of contaminants were found to be present including,  Chromium, Nickel, Lead, asbestos and solvents.  The site boundary ran along a busy road. 

  • Demolition of existing buildings and removal of all existing storage tanks/drainage/obstructions
  • Decommissioning of abstraction borehole located on site
  • Crushing of hardcover and brickwork from the demolition works to a 6F2/6F5 classification
  • Excavation of known contaminated soils and segregation into different stockpiles for reuse/treatment or disposal
  • Supplementary site investigation prior to remediation works commencing to confirm hotspot locations/depth.
  • Validation of excavations after hotspots have been removed for the contaminants of concern (VOCs) to ensure all hotspots have been removed effectively
  • Pumping of groundwater for as long as practicable from alluvium
  • Backfilling of excavations to a pre-defined formation level using treated and/or suitable site won material
  • Placement of geogrid and compaction of a piling mat to allow piling to commence
  • Installation of post – remediation groundwater monitoring wells and water monitoring

The works enabled this challenging site to be made available for a rapid programme of development into 850 student room campus accommodation.
