Contaminated land updates with Lotsearch
Tuesday 12 February 2019 | 1pm - 2pm AEDT
About the event
It is estimated that there are approximately 160,000 contaminated land sites across Australia.
In the past, attempting due diligence on potentially contaminated land has been difficult due to a lack of site-specific information being readily available. Thanks to the new contaminated land screening report produced by Lotsearch, lawyers can now protect their clients from nasty surprises and unexpected clean-up costs.
Howard Waldron, Director of Lotsearch will be demonstrating the new products and follow up services as well as discussing a number of different contaminated land case studies across Australia.
Presented by Howard Waldron & Mike Atkinson
After graduating with a BSc in Geography from the Loughborough University in 2000, Howard joined Landmark Information Group who the largest provider of environmental risk reports in the UK and Europe. Howard co-founded Lotsearch in 2014 which has quickly become the market leader in providing comprehensive environmental risk reports across Australia.
Mike Atkinson has a unique track record in developing strategies and applying methodologies to identify potentially contaminated sites in the UK and Australia - and has 25 years’ experience providing high-level environmental risk management, due diligence and sustainability advice to the corporate, finance, real estate, industry and government sectors.
