Risk Assessment

MEL (UK) Ltd (MEL)  have many years of managing intricate and complex remediation of operational sites across many sectors, development, regeneration, engineering, manufacturing, processing and distribution, to name a few.

We have worked alongside a wide range of Environmental Consultants to help develop robust and achievable remediation schemes on complex and challenging sites, for both Soil and Groundwater.

MEL has some of the most experienced people in the contaminated land industry in the UK and Ireland, and these are supported by experienced staff with robust technical and commercial backgrounds.

We clearly understand the relationship between Client, Consultant and Main Contractor and the importance of a clear, no nonsense, professional approach to meeting the Client’s needs.

The Client has varying needs and the solution to these needs can be altered to suit. Optional structures structure to meet these needs can be:

  • Fixed Cost Project :
    • MEL will adopt an all risk approach to many sites to ensure transparency on budgets and time tables. This can include full project management of the site to effectively provide a ‘Fit For Purpose’  site, in an agreed time scale and within an agreed cost.
  • Capped cost:
    • MEL clearly understand the risks associated with large scale remediation projects and we proactively look to manage those risk on behalf of the client, this enables us to work with the client to ‘cap’ costs
  • MEL can provide a comprehensive range of Sustainable Remediation options in house and have circa 20 years’ experience in designing and implementing remediation schemes

This meticulous and professional approach means that there are many ways to achieve a successful outcome delivered on time, on budget with minimal fuss
