Selected Project Experience
Due Diligence Contamination Assessment – Service Stations
Landserv was engaged by a petroleum client to undertake a targeted soil and groundwater investigation which comprised the rapid assessment of 12 service stations across Gippsland. The objective of the site assessments was to assess the fuel contamination status of the soil and groundwater at the sites for due diligence prior to acquisition of the sites. The field investigation component of these assessments was undertaken at an intensive pace as per client deadlines; with targeted soil assessments, groundwater investigation and groundwater monitoring events completed by two field teams within 1 month, and final reports issued 3 weeks following field investigations. Detailed remediation cost estimate reports were prepared for each site in order to provide the client with indicative costs they could expect to spend to bring the sites into compliance with groundwater and land State Environment Protection Policies (SEPPs).
Site Suitability Assessments (SSA) – Melton West and Doreen
Landserv conducted a Site Suitability Assessment at a site in Doreen and another in Melton West. The aim of the SSA’s was to assess the overall suitability of the sites for the future sensitive land use as a primary school. The investigations comprised a detailed site history assessment, appraisal of regional geology and hydrology, groundwater review, cultural heritage and ecological assessment.
