Reduce risk on contaminated land projects involving asbestos

May 13, 2020

RSK Ireland invites you to its free ‘Land contamination: Using ground investigations to assess risk in projects’ webinar, on Wednesday, 20 May. Join us as we discuss the risks and the remedies available to the Irish property sector on the island of Ireland.

From 11:00, the team’s experts will share their experience of working with contaminated land projects involving asbestos.


“Because of the increase in brownfield development opportunities, it is important to consider legacy issues associated with industrial land,” comments David O’Hagan, Managing Director, RSK Ireland. “Failing to address contamination early in a project it can result in significant delays and additional costs, which can affect project feasibility.”
