IKM have completed work on one of Scotland's biggest ever remediation projects at Bishopbriggs near Glasgow.
Decontamination of the site of the former Shell fuel storage depot at Westerhill has been going on for two years. Our team's work has included site investigation with trial pits, boreholes, chemical testing, on-site testing and risk assessment, as well as design and supervision of bioremediation of 70,000m3 of hydrocarbon-contaminated soil.
The derelict site has been regarded in the local area as an eyesore since the closure of the Shell facility in 1995. IKM's team are currently designing the post remediation monitoring programme.
"This project is one of the biggest of its kind ever carried out in Scotland and presented a variety of different challenges" said IKM Environmental Director Alistair Kean. "It's particularly good news that such a significant land restoration project is progressing at what is clearly a difficult time in the private finance sector."
The work was commissioned by Westerhill Developments, which is currently masterplanning a £60m development with main contractor Luddon Construction undertaking infrastructure and construction work over a two-year period.
