Infrastructure and Development
Large scale development and infrastructure projects often face challenges such as contaminated soil, asbestos in soil, environmental suitability of sites for changes in land use, surface water and groundwater impacts, geotechnical and structural issues, dust and noise emissions, sediments and erosion.
All these issues highlight the importance of due diligence, pre-construction assessments, site preparation and, during the construction phase, holistic and dynamic environmental management.
Landserv works to assess and manage a range of contamination and environmental issues on behalf of our State Government, Major Project and Private Developer clients. Our management of these issues controls the potential for expensive surprises during construction and significant adverse impacts to project budgets and outcomes, the environment and human health.
Landserv often performs these projects under Statutory Environmental Audit conditions. Our consultants have carried out environmental assessment work for more than half of Victoria’s EPA Appointed Contaminated Land Auditors and our work is known and respected by them.
Selected Project Experience
Melbourne Park and Olympic Park Redevelopment
Landserv was engaged to assist with soil management for the construction phase of the Melbourne Park & Olympic Park Redevelopment project. The project included the management of soil generated at the site during construction phase works. A portion of this work included the assessment and management of naturally occurring Potential Acid Sulfate Soil (PASS) identified at the site in the underlying Coode Island Silts.
