Sanctus Win Brownfield Briefing Award
3rd October 2017
Sanctus are pleased to announce that we recently received the Brownfield Briefing 2017 Winners Award for ‘Best Re-use of Materials on a Project’ for the Leeds College of Art remediation works, completed in conjunction with WYG Group.
Through onsite remediation of 8,000m3 of asbestos contaminated soils, and innovative earthworks support design, Sanctus successfully reused >97% of excavated materials as engineering fill onsite, a further 2% was recycled offsite and just 0.1% was sent to landfill.
Re-use of materials was key to the success of the project due to a tight programme and budget and also the highly constrained city centre location.
The works package was undertaken on a fixed price all risk basis, with all works being successfully delivered within a very tight programme. The client, Leeds College of Art, offered the following feedback and gave a satisfaction score of 45/45.
‘Sanctus completed the remediation work to a very tight schedule – on time and on budget. The team were professional and the limited issues arising were dealt with efficiently and effectively. I would happily recommend Sanctus’
