Many of these have involved the remediation of historical former landfill sites, a large number of which were unlicensed with little control over the material deposited. This experience and knowledge is invaluable to modern landfill site operators and waste companies who are tasked with managing and developing their facilities in a controlled and efficient manner. In recent years we have constructed several hazardous and non-hazardous landfill cells and installed drainage and leachate pipework as well as clay liners and gas protection systems. In addition, we have constructed roadways, car parks, weighbridges, wheel wash facilities as well as office foundations. Our experience in providing remediation services means that there are not many facets of modern landfill facilities that we haven’t delivered.

Outside of the cell, surface water ditches and fencing works were carried out along with works to divert a public footpath Rigmuir - Works comprised the permanent capping of 13,000m2 of an infilled part of the Rigmuir landfill site.
