Award winning The Knotweed Company - Project of the Year 2018.

Tuesday 3rd July 2018

The Knotweed Company won a prestigious honour at the annual Property Care Association awards ceremony a couple of weeks ago. We overcame a record number of entries to secure the Project of the Year title.

The winning project was for an old mine-working site in Camborne, Cornwall, that had been green-lit for development, but had laid empty for over 20 years due to significant contamination issues. Among the problems presented to developers was a massive Japanese knotweed infestation that had been worsened due to substantial soil movement and soil importation over the years.

We proposed a revolutionary approach to remediate the site by a combined use of consolidation, installation of root barriers and extensive monitoring and treatment. We approached the Environment Agency with our Knotweed Management Plan and received their approval. As a result of our proposal, our client was able to make substantial financial savings and a once untenable site became financially viable for development.
