LAND REDEVELOPMENT FOR COMMERCIAL & RESIDENTIAL AREAS
This 6000 square metre former industrial site, which included a former James Hardie factory, Camellia Chemical factory and a solvent drum recycling facility, was to be redeveloped for commercial, residential and recreational uses with basement car parking.
With the goal of making the site suitable for the proposed land uses EI assessed soils, groundwater and geotechnical conditions and developed a preliminary RAP for the on-site encapsulation of over 70 000 cubic metres of buried, asbestos-containing materials and localised, TRH/PAHs-impacted clinker waste.
The remediation strategy included onsite bio-pile treatment of soils impacted with petroleum and VOCs. EI also provided technical inputs to the landfill cell design concept.
VALUE ADDED / BENEFICIAL OUTCOMES FOR CLIENT:
EI progressed the site characterisation process to enable RAP revisions and to better inform related disciplines and consenting authorities during the review and approval process.
