RBS BANK PLC - TP Knotweed Solutions

RBS BANK PLC

PROJECT SCOPE

TP Knotweed Solutions Ltd were appointed by RBS Bank PLC and Lockhart Garratt Ecology to remediate a large development site with Japanese Knotweed in Kettering, Northamptonshire in 2014.

Planning conditions stated that the Japanese knotweed infestation must be removed from the site prior to development works.

REMEDIATION STRATEGY

After liaising with the client and careful consideration of site constraints and budgets, it was decided that complete knotweed excavation, licensed disposal of the waste was the most appropriate remediation strategy.

This site had various environmental restrictions that TP Knotweed had to work around alongside the ecologists and tree officers including Badger Setts and Root Protection Areas.

Following the main excavation works a monitoring programme was carried out and a 10 Year Insurance Backed Guarantee issued upon completion. The developer can now begin construction straight away.
