Which consultancy has the best reputation in contaminated land?
Atkins remains the frontrunner in contaminated land remediation, with ADAS snapping at its heels having climbed up the customers' ratings ladder from a much more modest position last year.As Government targets of 60% brownfield development are reached and surpassed, with calls to raise these to 75%, contaminated land remains an important playing field in the environmental sector.
Although ADAS is enjoying a steady rise in reputation as seen by customers in this sector, its status in the eyes of fellow consultants does not seem to have caught up.
ERM and AEA Technology follow, with Enviros and Environ not far behind. Both WSP's and URS's standing as perceived by other consultants seems to have slipped since last year, now almost on a par with that of customers, in whose eyes both consultancies remain in a comfortable position.
All of them are still a considerable way behind the top trio of Atkins, ADAS and AEA, however.
