Basso Project Management sought to compact the contaminated soil to avoid costly removal and disposal, and any subsequent project delays.

“As the cost of removing and disposing of the contaminated soil was astronomical, we worked hand in hand with the builders and engineers to arrive at a far more cost effective solution.” Elia Basso, Director, Basso Project Management
