VHE secure £11million Sighthill Remediation Contract
12 January 2016
VHE have been awarded the contract for delivery of a major remediation scheme – the Sighthill Transformation Regeneration Area - in Glasgow.
The design and build contract covering 50 hectares is the first contract for Glasgow City Council for the regeneration and redevelopment of the Sighthill area which will see almost 800 new homes built, new road and pedestrian bridges, amenity parkland, a new school and sports campus, student accommodation and much more.
Having previously carried out major remediation projects in Glasgow such as the Commonwealth Games Athletes Village and successfully treating Hexavalent Chromium at Shawfield, this is yet another major success for VHE in the area.
The Sighthill project will see the remediation of historical contamination both ex-situ and in-situ in particular Galligu and will also see demolition, deep grouting, drainage diversions and infrastructure works.
As with previous schemes undertaken by VHE, particular emphasis has been placed on Community Benefit, archaeological interest and ecological sensitivity. Works are due to start on site in January 2016
