About this book

The re-use of derelict land is environmentally and economically important. Building on Derelict Land, by its synthesis of established good practice, is a major contribution to achieving this objective.

The outcome of a PSA-commissioned project, this CIRIA Special Publication first presents an overview of the principles and procedures for the development of filled or contaminated sites. The identification of hazards, the assessment of their implications by thorough investigation, and the appraisal of the site and the options for its development, lead on to the measures available for reclamation and the design of structures. Further chapters examine the framework of the development contract and safety in site working. Appendices cover funding of development, examples of the principles applied to specific types of site, and gas sampling procedures.

Building on Derelict Land provides an overview for developers and detailed guidance for engineers and the professional teams faced with recycling filled and contaminated sites.
