Keltbray has launched a remediation service expected to draw new clients and support its organic growth prospects.
Keltbray Remediation has been started to extend its recycling and material management offer to manage and remediate brownfield sites in the housing and industrial sector. Sites will include construction sites and former landfills to facilitate new developments.
Keltbray said it expects the service to attract new clients and provide organic growth and opportunities across its group disciplines, adding that it sees Keltbray Remediation as playing a role in meeting improvements to waste recovery levels.
The service, which is a division of Keltbray Environmental Management, expands Keltbray’s offering of soil treatment facilities to transform technically poor and contaminated soils into clean materials.
Keltbray, which this year entered the CN100 after achieving a turnover of £126.4m in the year to October 2012, first turned construction waste and recovery into a standalone business in 2010.
Keltbray Environmental Managing Director David Jenner said: “With Keltbray Remediation, we will be able to manage large-scale contaminated sites from inception to completion, and take this commercial offering a step further, by providing larger scale services that manage excavation and the processing of waste and ‘hotspot’ remediation on site.
“This will include the remediation of old landfills and the treatment of heavy metals and fuel or groundwater contamination and control on brownfield sites to facilitate new developments, such as housing.”
Operations director Joe Jackson will head up Keltbray Remediation.
