GeoCon successfully undertake a Phase I and Phase II site investigation on land at 1A Wilton Way, Islington London.
The results of the Phase I indicate that the site has remained as a back garden to a residential property since the earliest historical maps in 1893 for the area.
The local authority building control department specified that they would accept some basic testing in two locations at the site.
Chemical testing results indicate elevated lead levels in the reworked topsoil beneath the site. The proposed development will completely cover the site in hardstanding leaving no proposed areas of landscaping.
Therefore the pathway between the lead contamination source and the human end users is removed.
The site was deemed suitable for use.
