Polluted sites and soils management is an essential component in territory sustainable development and urban and industrial wastelands redevelopment. The recent overhaul of the national methodology and ALUR Act reinforce this concern and clarifies the responsibilities of the different actors.

Whether you are selling, buying or developing a site, BURGEAP assists you in the design of your projects, to ensure you the proper consideration of underground pollution issues.

Our aim is to help you design and implement development or construction projects combining health risks control due to pollution and cost optimization, in order to respect the overall economy of your projects.

Thanks to a first diagnostic step (soil, soil gas, groundwater, sediments), BURGEAP assesses the situation of the site and determines if any specific measures are necessary for your project. The management plan proposes optimized excavated soil management, possible constructive measures adapted to buildings and outdoor spaces and, if necessary, the most effective depollution techniques to be implemented to restore sanitary compatibility between site and uses. If necessary, feasibility and pilot tests of the work design plan will provide technical and financial security for the design and sizing of the rehabilitation works.

As certified engineering consultant, if your project sits on a former industrial site or includes a soil information sector, BURGEAP writes the certificate to be attached to the development or construction permit. BURGEAP can define the terms of “memory conservation”, and if required,easements and environmental monitoring of water and air, to ensure the sustainability of the operations carried out.

BURGEAP also supports you for the design and execution of rehabilitation works as prime contractor or assistance to project management.

We can work on pyrotechnic pollution issues as well as on soil radiological and asbestos pollution through our DELEO subsidiary
