Earthworks and Remediation at Firepool, Taunton

We are pleased to be delivering the earthworks and remediation package for Wilmott Dixon at the Firepool site in Taunton, Somerset. The onsite works are part of Somerset County Council’s £11m Digital Innovation Centre development that will provide high-quality workspace and innovation assistance for local tech-based businesses, supporting the growth of the digital economy in the local area.

  • delineation and remediation of contamination hotspots,
  • removal, offsite treatment and recovery of excess materials,
  • screening and crushing of hard materials to site reuse specifications,
  • temporary access works and piling mat formation,
  • soil testing and waste classification,
  • environmental monitoring and control.
