Kiwa CMT Testing
Russell Corbyn is a Chartered Environmentalist and has worked for 14 years in the Contaminated Land industry previously working in various laboratories for food and pharmaceutical companies and raw materials suppliers. After studying geology Russell began work with CMT Testing in 2004 and began investigating contaminated land. A keen interest in human health and soil unfolded and has since been involved with workshop groups such as LQM/CIEH for GAC and more recently S4UL, CIRIA “A guide to small brownfield sites and land contamination (C773)”. Topsoil, macadam, PAH double ratio plots, waste materials assessment and testing are all interest areas.
Topsoil…. Asset or Liability
The talk will focus on Topsoil use on construction sites. It will briefly overview what a Topsoil is, the provenance of different topsoil types and how investigation and analysis of topsoil can aid decision making and money saving while delivering a good product for customers. Whether re-using or importing topsoils to the site the talk aims to provide a good broad overview of an often-overlooked subject.
