Exploring a contaminated site always starts by retracing and therefore understanding the historical development of the place in order to precisely conduct the following technical investigation.
Processing the historical use of a site can either be carried out locally, for example for a Site Investigation, the investigation of building pollutants or the baseline report but also on a regional scale, for instance regarding an entire federal state, according to the Austrian Act on the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ALSAG).
Data like the following are collected:
- Constructional development (Erection, Alterations, Demolition)
- Machinery setting at different points in time
- Applied substances and production methods
- Waste deposits
We therefore utilise different sources like company archives, openly accessible files or historical aerial images.
The results are processed by us with the help of high-quality geo information tools and are then evaluated, prioritised and visualised. Based on these first collections, the following examinations can be decided.
As a first step towards the assessment of a potential environmental hazard we are pleased to offer you a historical investigation for your site.
