Land Quality Endorsement Technical risk management for contaminated and brownfield land
The LQE service has been beneficial in achieving robust and expedient land deals on several sites.Mark Nicholls, Technical Director, Harrow Estates
Developing brownfield sites can involve significant risks and costs in overcoming contamination and geotechnical issues.
NHBC's Land Quality Endorsement (LQE) provides technical risk management for contaminated and brownfield land. Using the service means reliable advice during remediation.
It is ideal for landowners, development agencies and specialist remediation companies. It can aid land negotiations, providing reduced uncertainty and increased confidence for developers - NHBC's LQE is becoming a pre-requisite for many developers looking at large brownfield sites.
Reassurance on contaminated sites
NHBC is already helping on some of the largest remediation schemes and challenging sites in Europe - including open cast coal mines, landfills, cement works and chalk pits. NHBC's assessment of the remediation process, from site investigation through to verification, can help address planning conditions and has been used in appeals.
The service is particularly beneficial to sites that will be remediated for subsequent sale to developers of new housing or mixed use schemes.
