Aldermaston and Burghfield, Berkshire


RPS provided planning, EIA, Ecology, Landscape design, Transport, Land Remediation and other services for infrastructure developments and site facilities.

RPS has provided development support to AWE since 2005 on a wide range of key projects. We have provided Town Planning advice, Environmental Statements, advice on Ecology, Landscaping, Sustainability and Civil Engineering design input as well as providing advice on the site wide Travel Plan.

Projects RPS have assisted AWE with include the 1400 staff Gemini office complex, Circinus High Explosives facility, Pegasus Enriched Uranium Handling Facility, Technical Development Centre and the Mensa facility.

RPS has also provided Site Investigation, Risk Assessment and Remediation strategy advice for redevelopments at Burghfield, a former munitions factory, including the former site tip. Site investigations confirmed soils within the former tip to be impacted with asbestos, chemical contaminants and explosive residues. RPS developed the remediation strategy for mitigating contamination risks and prepared a detailed Engineering Design and Remediation Specification. The engineering design included 3D digital terrain modelling, volumetric calculations, CAD engineering drawings and visualisations.
