Contaminated Land Remediation

Cato Bolam’s contaminated land remediation services help companies develop land in a safe and environmentally sustainable way. Our team are here to help if you need any assistance with the assessment or remediation of contaminated land anywhere in New Zealand.

With over 40 years of experience, our team of ecologists can conduct investigations on potentially contaminated land development areas. Our team, which includes a Suitably Qualified Environmental Professional (SQEP) as required for land investigations under the Resource Management Act’s National Environmental Standard for Assessing and Managing Contaminants in Soil to Protect Human Health, will provide a comprehensive assessment for use during early project stages.

Cato Bolam’s SQEP undertakes preliminary or detailed site investigations, using soil samples, in accordance with the Ministry for the Environment’s guidelines. The assessment will address risks to both human health and the environment and will offer advice on any remediation and resource consents which would be required prior to project commencement.

Cato Bolam’s contaminated land remediation services include:

  • ‘risks and options’ assessments
  • desktop / preliminary site investigations (PSI)
  • intrusive / detailed site investigations (DSI) – including soil sampling
  • remedial action plans (RAP)
  • site validation reports (SVR)
  • consenting / approvals
  • due diligence appraisals
  • land contamination avoidance advice

Identify land development risks early with Cato Bolam’s contaminated land remediation services. The immediate removal of pollutants or contaminants from soil, groundwater or surface water is critical not only to an area’s profitability, but also its sustainability. Our company can furnish the necessary consents and approvals to remediate a contaminated site as early as possible, whilst supplying comprehensive documentation of all case details, site validation reports as well as action plans to prevent the site’s re-contamination in the future.
