Project Description

Client: Selits Limited
Location: Fishersgate, East Sussex
Year Completed: 2003
Contractor: Integra / Mowlem
Architect: Miller Bourne Partnership
Contract value: £2m

This was a complex phased construction of commercial buildings and refurbishment of an existing two storey 1960’s reinforced concrete framed factory to form business units, on a contaminated ‘brown field’ site.

The original Victorian building and soil below it were contaminated by radio-activity from historic manufacturing processes. The ground was also contaminated by sulphates, mercury and dry cleaning fluids.

Gyoury Self organised the initial ‘clean up’ of the radioactivity within the basement, supervised building demolition, then organised the remediation of the made ground overlying the site to Environment Agency and Environmental Health Agency approval.

Services provided
Gyoury Self was engaged directly by the client to provide full structural and civil engineering services, including remediation specification and validation.
