Well, in order for some industrial brownfield sites to be successfully regenerated and be viable for development, it is important to carry out a process prior to the demolition of the existing building, and this is the process of decommissioning. During this stage, careful removal of many hazardous materials and gases will take place, allowing for recovery of existing plant and equipment, greater re-use of materials such as concrete or masonry, and most importantly, a lowering of the risk to human health during the demolition and remediation phases of a scheme.
By ensuring a robust health and safety environmental management system is in place, process plant and other infrastructure can be rendered safe, and appropriate waste management and handling applied.
