Clean capping requirements for brownfield land remediation

1 February 2022

An important part of completing the remediation of brownfield sites is the topsoil and subsoil used to cap the site.  Delivered in association with British Sugar TOPSOIL, this webinar brings together leading experts to discuss the key requirements in:

  • the selection and sampling of appropriate soil sources
  • the design, placement and verification of the clean capping layer.

Both are key to successfully clearing NHBC and Local Authority conditions, and knowing how to get it right first time can be important when it comes to having funds released by lenders. You will leave the webinar with great knowledge on the sources of topsoil, pitfalls, sampling and testing and Local Authority requirements.
