Brownfield Land Clean-up - Free Seminar

An important part of completing the remediation of brownfield land is the topsoil used to cap the site. The quality of the gardens and any landscaping can affect homeowner satisfaction and can be an important factor in successfully clearing NHBC and local authority conditions.

This free half-day seminar will help you understand the best practice solutions for topsoil.

NHBC has teamed up with British Sugar TOPSOIL to bring together leading speakers to cover the different issues, including successful procurement, and to answer your questions.

Places are limited, so registration will be conducted on a first come, first serve basis. To register, please contact Gavin Allsopp at NHBC on or 01908 746 645
