Remediation Redefined

Contaminated land not only impacts the health and quality of life of the community, it can have major economic, legal and planning implications, possibly limiting land use potential, or increasing costs for developers and councils. Investigation and clean-up is paramount to the protection of human health and the environment, and the long-term economic stability of the area.

For more than 25 years, Arcadis has led the way in site evaluation and remediation. We work with some of Australia’s, and the world’s, largest mining, property, investment and construction, petrochemical, and industrial organisations, saving our clients over $1 billion in remediation costs. We are now harnessing advances in materials and technology to improve environmental clean-up decision making, and improve quality of life.

Tackling emerging contaminants before they impact people or the environment can be difficult, costly, and time consuming.

Arcadis has developed unique solutions to manage emerging contaminants like PFAS, enhancing the environmental performance of our clients' sites. We are leading the way for site assessment, analysis, toxicology, risk assessment and remediation of emerging contaminants.
