About Us

Meslec is a family owned civil engineering, groundworks and remediation company specialising in the commercial and residential sectors. We provide an integrated inhouse approach to projects where contamination is likely. This approach provides clients with a single contractor able to foresee the risks and realise the opportunities presented by such projects at each phase of delivery whilst minimising programme delays and costs associated with demobilisation of one contractor followed by mobilisation of another.


It is also important to recognise that whilst a site may be "remediated", this does not mean it is free of impacted material which if subsequently encountered by follow on civil engineering or groundworks contractors could pose risks to both personnel onsite and have financial implications in terms of treatment or disposal if the contractor has not recognised this and not allowed for it or excluded it from their tender. 


Our team of highly qualified, skilled and dedicated staff work closely with our clients from early stage engagement through construction to verification by regulators. This approach is based upon three key early stages:

  1. We undertake site investigations which focus not just on the lines of evidence necessary for site characterisation but also on the requisite information to develop holistic remediation, earthwork support and foundation design enabling accurate costings for subsequent delivery.
  2. Make recommendations for final build designs whilst providing accurate estimates for works which can be performed by ourselves.
  3. Develop and agree with local authorities remediation strategies that will effectively deal with the source-pathway-receptor profile of the site taking into consideration the effects of any build designs.

This approach provides clients with the assurance they require when tackling what some see as the risky business of "Contaminated Land", but are yet nothing more than our core business activities.


Of utmost importance on all our sites is the management of Health & Safety, alongside Environmental and Quality assurance to both provide and maintain the confidence of our workforce, the communities in which we work and the local and regulatory authorities who monitor our activities.
