LEAP has a strong background in innovation and product development around the arena of brownfield land remediation and site investigation.
In 2012 this effort was recognised by winning the best remediation verification at a national brownfield land awards ceremony. The 2012 win was improved upon in 2015 with a double win at the same awards, this time for best site investigation and best scientific advancement.
The 2012 win recognised the collaboration within the project team to deliver a highly sensitive remediation using innovative in situ testing and data assessment techniques to deliver a significant saving to the local authority client.
The 2015 award winning site investigation was for another local authority client and was in recognition of the intensive stakeholder liaison and state of the art investigation conception and design, as well as the pioneering toxicological risk assessment employed. The scientific advancement award was for new online contaminated land data management software “Veridata” that LEAP has developed.
In 2017, LEAP was awarded Best Environmental & Geotechnical Consultancy in the Home Builder Awards.
