Autumn is one of the busiest periods of the year for the LQE team, with earthworks season drawing to a close and customers beginning new site preparations for the following spring. It's also awards season, and the Brownfield Briefing Awards ceremony stands as the crowning event for recognising technical excellence in the brownfield sector. This year saw the LQE team host a table of their own; their guests included customers, colleagues and industry experts with whom they have worked closely with over the last decade on projects large and small.

Our land quality and geotechnical engineers were joined by Neil Jefferson, NHBC's Business Development Director and all-round industry luminary, who presented the Best Project Closer / Verification Process award to GEO 2 Remediation Limited & CE Geochem for their work on Surfactant Enhanced Aquifer Remediation. Neil also presented consultancy firm WYG with the `Commended' award for their work at Cross Gar in Northern Ireland.

During the past decade, the Land Quality Endorsement team have contributed to the restoration of over 100 sites, with the potential for 45,000 new homes, back to sustainable residential usage.

The future of the LQE service looks as bright as its ten-year history, with the team having this year secured four commissions on large-scale projects that will eventually host approximately 4,000 new homes, and further sites in the pipeline.
