Environmental research maps possible pollution of the subsurface and waterbottom. If necessary, the health and risks of soil pollution are determined and the ground contaminants are then removed. In the same field as environmental soil research lies the research, which determines whether the soil material can be (re)used as building material.
Fieldwork is carried out by external qualified and fully certified fieldwork bureaus. The chemical analyses are conducted by qualified laboratories.

Preliminary soil investigation
Environmental soil research aims to identify soil contamination. The research consists of several steps. The extent and seriousness of the detected contamination can lead to the decision for soil remediation.
If an environmental soil investigation has shown that a location is seriously contaminated, a remediation plan must be drawn up. In a remediation plan, the most suitable remediation variant that emerged from the investigation is elaborated in detail.
Asbestos research is an important part of environmental soil research. Asbestos research begins with a historical study to identify possible sources of asbestos dispersal. If the historical research shows that a location has been exposed to asbestos, field research into asbestos in and on the soil will be carried out.
Ecological research is concerned with the question whether vulnerable ecosystems (plants or animals) present in the research area that may be at risk because of the planned activities. To determine this, a nature test or flora & fauna quick scan is carried out.
T&A has all the expertise to steer the entire process of environmental soil research in the right direction. Our consultants think from you as a client to optimally represent your interests. The fieldwork is carried out by specialized fieldwork agencies that we have been working with for many years.
