CPD Course – Managing contaminated land through a construction project

This half day seminar is offered by Maylarch and accredited by the CPD Certification Service. It will give attendees the knowledge and understanding of how to deal with contamination found on construction sites - safely and in line with all the relevant legislation and procedures.

As an award winning, multi-disciplinary, environmental services contractor, Maylarch has been delivering compliance and peace of mind for over 30 years.

Maylarch has extensive experience in dealing with contamination found in construction projects. As well as understanding the safety, legal and regulatory procedures regarding asbestos and other contaminants, Maylarch are also able to share their knowledge of the commercial considerations with seminar attendees.

The seminar will cover:

  • Overview of how contaminated land is dealt with under planning in the UK
  • Current best practice regarding managing land and soils remediation
    • Is the land contaminated?
    • How will any remediation be dealt with?
    • How will remediation be implemented on site?
    • What happens if something unexpected is found?
    • Documentation to prove remediation has been carried out as agreed
  • How planning regulations regarding remediation overlap with other legislation affecting construction – CAR 2012, CDM 2015 and waste
  • Opportunity for questions and answers to address attendees’ real issues


Attendees will understand:

  • How to manage contaminated land through the remediation process
  • Best practices to protect themselves and their company from legal liability
  • The rules and procedures that must be met for compliance

This knowledge will enable them to minimise legal and safety risks of contamination found on construction sites and make good commercial decisions about remediation.
