Soil survey and remediation

The soil always plays an important role in infrastructure projects, nature and landscape developments, urban renewal, and the reorganisation of industrial sites. Sweco Belgium’s specialists possess all the knowledge and experience required to implement legal requirements and propose sustainable solutions.

We provide advisory recommendations for projects in the three Belgian regions: Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia. Our specialists follow a detailed quality system, and are members of the Association of Certified Soil Remediation Specialists (Vereniging van Erkende Bodemsaneringsdeskundigen – VEB). They also possess the ‘Safety for Operational Management’ VCA certification. Sweco has its own fieldwork team, and is recognised by VLAREL for sampling asbestos in soil and dredged spoils and slurry according to the ISO 17025 quality system.

Our specialists focus on avoiding soil remediation, so we start out with a thorough risk analysis in the event of historical soil contamination. If remediation is inevitable, we follow a cost-effective and risk-based approach in the preparation of the soil project and environmental supervision of the soil remediation work.
