A major amount of our excavation and earthworks revolves around the highly specialised land remediation sector. Our company has carried out several major colliery land remediation schemes and numerous brownfield site redevelopments. These works include dealing with special waste, processing or concrete / unsuitable materials, ground engineering and ground remodelling in preparation for redevelopment / landscaping.

Processing of Materials

One of our abilities at TKL is the processing of materials to the highest specification on site. Developing three principle stages to enable material to be processed promptly:

  1. Screening
  2. Crushing of reinforced concrete to class 6f2, DOT and MOT Type 1 specification
  3. Recompaction of fill materials to above 95% of the maximum dry density

Contaminated Land

TKL deal with all types of special waste and have vast amounts of experience treating contaminated materials by various methods:

  • Off site disposal to a licensed land fill site
  • On site treatment
  • Encapsulation within an engineered cell
  • Bioremediation techniques

To ensure safe practice COSHH assessments, risk assessments and method statements are of paramount importance to provide protection for both the workforce and the general public. TKL are registered carriers of waste therefore all off site works can be undertaken in-house. Off site works are carried out under both Duty of Care and current Environmental Protection Act Legislation
