After the soil investigation highlighted that the site contained contaminated waste that would cost a considerable amount to remove and potentially halt the project; we consulted with the principle contractor and designers on a means of reducing this cost and allowing the project to continue. It was advised that the levels across the site could be raised to reduce the amount of waste material that would be generated. Cost was further reduced by ensuring that all waste was separated and removed separately based on classification in the soil investigation. This meant that any clean material could be removed at a lower rate to the hazardous material saving on removal costs.
