Soil Testing and Analysis, Soil Remediation Services

Clean soil plays a profound role in supporting healthy ecosystems.

SCAADA’s skilled team of environmental consultants recognise the importance of assisting clients manage a variety of soil challenges and offer a range of geotechnical soil testing and remediation services.


Our aim is to get the soil to an acceptable ‘tip-top’ condition, ready for your next project.

Our soil management services are delivered as a standalone service, or for more complex environmental issues, in conjunction with other project needs. As with any environmental project, Scaada aims to balance the competing interests of the community and the environment, alongside the commercial viability of the project.

Soil Contamination

Soil contamination is typically encountered on sites used for previous industrial, commercial and agricultural purposes. In most cases, the soil has been contaminated by hazardous substances. As a result, the soil may pose a risk to human health through direct ingestion of soil particles or, if volatile, through volatilisation and entry into buildings or, if leachable, through groundwater systems.

Asbestos soil contamination

As with other contaminants, asbestos soil contamination may pose existing and future implications. If asbestos contamination is suspected, Scaada will conduct a thorough site assessment and soil testing to evaluate:

  • Condition of asbestos containing material
  • Extent of asbestos contamination
  • Depth of asbestos (surface level or buried at a depth)
  • Current and future uses of the affected land and potential risk to human health

Soil testing and analysis

SCAADA conduct comprehensive site assessments. This may include soil testing, water testing and air monitoring. Once we have established the causal factor, our team will work closely with the client to assess their needs and budget. SCAADA’s soil testing services include:

  • Soil testing and soil analysis

  • Preliminary site investigations
  • Detailed site investigations (including soil testing, water testing, air monitoring and analysis)
  • Soil categorisations
  • Hazardous building materials assessments

Soil remediation and management

Our highly experienced environmental consultants, skilled in environmental science and engineering, regularly support clients to manage issues of soil contamination, including asbestos. This is generally required pre and post construction works and other development projects.

We will design a tailored environmental management plan for site remediation and, if required, deliver a complete end-to-end project management service.
