GCA Strengthens Brownfield Regeneration Expertise.

GCA Civil, Structural and Highways engineering consultancy  has appointed a contaminated land expert to strengthen its team and expand its range of services. Chartered engineer Graham Whitaker has joined GCA from the National House Building Council.

He has joined the company at its Head Office in Derby as an Associate and will specialise in developing a geo–environmental services consultancy concerning brownfield sites development for residential, industrial and commercial uses.

Graham has been involved in a number of steering groups to set national standards for contaminated land remediation and has presented at major UK conferences and seminars on the subject.

At NHBC he was instrumental in developing approval for remediation of large contaminated sites due for residential development. He project managed the NHBC Certificate of Land Quality Endorsement and was responsible for the Environmental Engineering Team that delivered geo environmental services throughout the UK.

There is a vast amount of land across the UK which has been affected by our industrial heritage. As this land becomes available for re-development, we can offer the expertise to assess the risks involved and find solutions to any hazards identified.
