GeoStream UK has completed extensive demolition, decommissioning and remediation works on the site of a former petrol station in Brighton.

The small-footprint site raised numerous challenges for GeoStream’s environmental specialists, including working around an adjacent listed structure which required protection.

Completed works include:

  • Removal of notifiable asbestos
  • Demolition of aboveground building, including metal recycling and separation of hard materials for reuse
  • Decommissioning of hydrocarbon infrastructure, including eight USTs
  • Removal and treatment of hydrocarbon contamination
  • Reinstatement of the site ready for development

James Cartwright, Managing Director of GeoStream UK, said: “With a small area to work with and congestion on-site, we needed to devise a strategic response that would allow for maximum efficiency and minimal disruption.

“The team did a fantastic job, ensuring the project was completed on programme, on budget and with no time lost.”
