Matilda Bay Brewery redevelopment
As the lead environmental consultant, Strategen is currently undertaking a comprehensive contaminated site assessment and management program at the former Matilda Bay Brewery Site in North Fremantle for Three Oceans Properties. Prior to use as a brewery, the site was used by Ford Australia to assemble motor vehicles.
The site contains areas of uncontrolled fill comprising foundry waste and other materials. As the original Preliminary Site Investigation (undertaken in 2006) did not meet current standards, Strategen collected additional information to prepare a gap analysis. Strategen then prepared a sampling and analysis quality plan to the satisfaction of a WA accredited contaminated sites auditor. Strategen have recently completed the Detailed Site Investigation field work which involved soil sampling from many test pits and soil borings along with the installation of five groundwater bores to a depth of approximately 20mbgl (below ground level).
