RSK Polska’s recipe for redeveloping contaminated sites

June 28, 2021

Historic developments that have fallen out of use offer great potential for redevelopment projects in cities. But the regeneration of brownfield sites also presents challenges, particularly when the aim is to make the redevelopment green from inception through to completion. In a recent article published by Contact Online magazine, Tomasz Galoch, Environment, Health and Safety Team Leader at RSK Polska, outlines his “recipe” for successfully “recycling real estate” projects in Poland.

Tomasz gives a four-stage solution that offers the means to redevelop contaminated sites while meeting environmental targets in the country. The first point: “plan”, emphasises the need to understand the regulations in place and the level of contamination to be addressed at the site. This links to the second stage of “investigate”. Tomasz highlights in this point that to gain a full understanding of the site, research into historic documentation about the plot and its previous uses will be necessary. This should be accompanied by laboratory analysis to identify the presence of any contamination.

Following planning and investigation, the third stage of designing your strategy to “reconcile plans with results” puts plans and findings into action. “A proper approach to planning,” Tomasz says, will enable any identified contamination on the site to be effectively dealt with, thus enabling the proposed development to be carried out, which is Tomasz’s fourth point of “execute clean up and redevelopment”. When conducting investigations and redevelopment work, Tomasz says it is important to “stick to what you have planned” and document work. He concludes that the redevelopment of contaminated land, although it has its challenges, is beneficial for “the local community and for our planet”.
