In 2020, Cognition teamed up with Climate Care to offset our total annual emissions and becoming Carbon Neutral for the first time. In the same year, the company committed to stay proactive, adopting and developing more sustainable remediation methodologies, selection of materials and energy sources we use, reducing the need for offset element of our emissions.

Worcester Park

23 September 2020

Cognition has started groundworks & remediation at Taylor Wimpey's Worcester Park development.

Cognition has started groundworks & remediation at Taylor Wimpey's Worcester Park development.

Taylor Wimpey came to us with a problem! They had significant stockpiles of asbestos contaminated soil on site that was destined for landfill, archaeological remains that needed protection, a large excavation that needed filling and a requirement for import of 3,500m3 of pile mat material.

Cognition completely rationalised the groundworks design to arrive at a far cheaper, quicker and more practical solution.

We developed:

1) an archaeology protection system using sustainably sourced sand imported under the CL:AIRE DoWCoP;

2) processing, picking and reuse of the stockpiles onsite;

3) engineered filling of the existing voids using site won soils; and

4) cement stabilisation of site soils and placement as pile mat.

Novel solutions to de-risk the ground is what we do best!

Our approach has led to significant cost and programme savings for our client.

Please get in touch if you would like a similar 'can do' solution to your site remediation and groundworks.
