Johnsons Apparelmaster Shares Two Prestigious Accolades
Textile rental specialists Johnsons Apparelmaster have been recognised for their work on a voluntary environmental clean up at the Brownfield Briefing Awards.
In conjunction with Hyder Consulting, a leading multinational design and engineering consultancy and Regenesis, a leading remediation technologies company, Johnsons Apparelmaster accepted the awards for Best In-Situ Remedial Treatment and Best Project Closure/Verification Process assessment and remediation.
Both awards were given in recognition of a voluntary clean up project at the Johnsons Little Hulton site near Manchester. Prior tenants of the site had left pollution, so Johnsons elected to clean the ground underneath its active dry cleaning facility and were initially faced with a 30 foot deep excavation. After consulting Hyder for an alternative option, they recommended Regenesis to deploy the treatment and the teams were able to successfully remediate a historic solvent groundwater contamination.
Johnsons Senior Projects Manager, Peter Butler, along with George Flower, Hyder’s Technical Director specialising in land remediation and Gareth Leonard, UK & Scandinavia District Manager of Regenesis, accepted the two awards from the BBC’s Kate Bellingham at the ceremony at the Portman Radisson Blu Hotel in London.
Speaking of the awards, Peter commented, ““We are thrilled that the scheme received the awards after all the hard work put in by everyone. The teamwork between Johnsons Apparelmaster, Hyder and Regenesis has provided the best outcome, with no disruption to our operations and the neighbourhood.”
