One of Spencer’s most regular tasks is the clearance of sites prior to the start of a construction project.
This has included the clearance and removal of waste from building plots, industrial sites, road construction routes, wind and solar farms, agricultural land, sportsfields and protected areas, such as SSSIs, SACs and National Parks.
Whether it’s a greenfield or brownfield site, the Spencer team is well rehearsed in clearing, removing and recycling waste materials, such as trees, vegetation, stone, brick, concrete, or any other unwanted items.
Before starting work, Spencer carries out a site survey and produces a report. This will contain a summary of the material that has to be cleared and the way in which the work will be carried out. The report will cover the methodology of the work, disposal and recycling of the materials and highlight any ecological and environmental issues, such as the protection of endangered species, control of wildlife and the preservation of rare plants.
With so much experience in this area, Spencer has invested in a range of plant and equipment that will deal with almost any site clearance task. It also means that Spencer staff are used to working to deadlines and consequently, they understand the importance of handing over the cleared site on time.
To ensure the land is in the best possible condition prior to construction work starting, Spencer can also prepare the soil and attend to the control of invasive plants - such as Japanese Knotweed - install underground services (cables and pipes), erect fences and instigate planting and landscaping schemes.
With increasing global populations, the demand for new homes has never been greater.
