Contaminated Land



The EMM contaminated land team specialises in the management, mitigation and elimination of the risks and liabilities associated with site contamination.

We provide practical and effective advice and services through all stages of a project’s lifecycle, from risk characterisation to remediation to ongoing site management.

Key Contaminated Land Services

EMM assesses, monitors and remediates contaminated land for a broad range of market sectors, including energy, government, infrastructure, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, property development and transport.

With safety at the forefront of everything we do, EMM’s contaminated land team helps our clients to close a site or facility and implement monitoring strategies that will fit with the business objectives in their asset liability assessment and management plans.

We focus on protecting our clients’ reputation and they find our expertise with stakeholder liaison and management and regulatory negotiations and management invaluable.
