Kerry Murray / Amy Parekh-Pross

Decoding Sample Variability and Deviation CB*~^ˠϮ

Data variability in the field and laboratory is a hot topic. Throughout the project life cycle there are many opportunities to introduce variability and in some cases result in deviating samples. Depending upon the approach of the regulators they may request resampling which comes at a high cost to the consultancy firms. This seminar assesses the key factors that contribute towards data variability and deviating samples. We also provide concise take home messages to ensure meaningful data and avoid costly resampling.

Andrew Green

Ambient and Occupational Dust Characterisation and Assessment

Our speaker will present methods and case studies of monitoring and characterising dust contaminants in ambient, industrial situations as well as in occupational exposure assessment studies.


12.30 - 13.00

Dr Samuel Hall

The Role of Innovation and Collaboration in Cost Effective Remediation Design

The seminar will explore the role of the remediation contractor in providing innovative and collaborative remedial strategies and design. Should these processes be followed appropriately, this can help to drive down the costs associated with contaminated land remediation and brownfield regeneration, leading to ongoing project surety. The talk will identify where in the overall contaminated land management process innovation and collaboration should be explored, and will utilise examples from current case studies.


13.15 - 13.45


Japanese Knotweed and Root Barrier membranes

Japanese Knotweed and how Root Barriers can provide cost-effective solutions.


14.00 - 14.30

Paul King

Development of Asbestos Contaminated Sites

Over the last ten years the general consensus and official guidance on asbestos contamination has often been inconsistent from one year to the next. This seminar discusses the changes in approach, analysis and key documents from various organisations to summarise where we are now, and where things are heading. The seminar will give an overview of the process, along with case studies to illustrate key points.


14.45 - 15.15

Matthew Metcalfe

What is the future of environmental data analysis?

Our talk will focus on environmental data analysis - where it has come from, the current situation, particularly with frustrations around data availability, and where the industry is heading with the introduction of new applications such as Groundsure’s new online data viewer
