Partnering with a leading contaminated land specialist

Project Particularshydrock

Client:    Hydrock

Timeframe:   6 weeks

Pumps/Day:   12

Project Overview

Hydrock had been employed to decontaminate a brownfield site in Rugby which was to be developed. Asbestos had been identified, the likely cause of which was historic demolition of buildings on-site.


To ensure the highest quality, monthly fiber quality checks are carried out and the participation of the Regular Inter-laboratory Counting Exchange scheme is partaken quarterly. The analysts carry out monthly re-checks on operational slides, including all clearance slides then 1 in 20 for all other slides.

Independent Analyst

As Hydrock’s independent asbestos consulting partner, MSS were brought into the project to provide personal and reassurance air tests during ground-works.


Whilst the weather was dry, to prevent the dust spreading, bowsers with fans sprayed water. Covers were built to protect the pumps from rain.

As part of MSS’ UKAS accreditation, all of our Analysts hold BOHS P403 and/or BOHS P404 technical qualifications.
