Landfill Gas Monitoring
As property in urban centres becomes increasingly scarce, old landfill facilities and their surrounding buffer zones are coming under more scrutiny for their development potential. However, construction around and on landfills has generally presented a substantial barrier to redevelopment other than as open parkland or other waste-related facilities.
A number of risks should all be accounted for during the valuation process and prior to commencement of any development including:
- Gas migration
- Differential settlement
Greencap assists clients with the advisory on potential risks posed to existing and new developments from landfill gas and ways in which risk can be characterised, managed or mitigated so that the safety of infrastructure and people can be maintained.
