The UK Environment Agency has awarded Celtic one of only six places on their National Contaminated Land Remediation Contractors Framework. The Environment Agency is the UK Regulator responsible for the protection of all ground and surface waters, wastes and remediation licensing in England and Wales.
Celtic was the highest scoring contractor at the conclusion of the tender process. The tender assessed competency in all aspects of contaminated land remediation, including a costed, design and construct approach to a range of model contaminated land scenarios; understanding of legislation; ability to resource remediation projects across the UK; health and safety; and sustainability.
At the conclusion, Celtic scored 96.6%, with the five remaining contractors scoring from 88.1% to 73.6%.
The tender submission was the result of inputs from staff in multiple offices, whose efforts are reflected by the high tender score and tender award.
The Framework has been primarily developed to meet the needs of the Environment Agency and the Local Authorities in England and Wales. However, it is also available to the UK Government Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), and to its associated bodies including any Agencies and non-departmental public bodies, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, the Northern Ireland Environment Agency and the Forestry Commission.
