With headquarters in Sittingbourne, Kent, further UK offices in Stafford and Devon, and an office in Bologna, Italy, Ecologia provides innovative solutions for the investigation, assessment and remediation of contaminated land.

Founded in 2000, the company provides services in the area of contaminated land consultancy, site investigation and remediation, and specialised support for environmental claims. It provides solutions to a wide range of customers including the public sector, property development and construction companies, the chemical and petrochemical industry, and insurance companies and loss adjustors.

Ecologia has previously supported RSK on a range of projects, most recently in Africa and the Dominican Republic. Joining forces will enable RSK to strengthen its internal site remediation resources and equipment, grow its remediation capability and expand into new markets. With a base in Italy and extensive international experience, Ecologia also strengthens RSK's international expansion across Europe.

"RSK has already developed a good working relationship with Ecologia," said RSK CEO and founder Alan Ryder. "It is a fantastic company that will complement RSK's existing businesses, such as RemedX. Ecologia's spill response work and experience in the insurance market will also complement RSK Response and RSK Raw. I am delighted to welcome Ecologia to the group and look forward to exploring new opportunities for us all."

Ecologia will join RSK's contracting division under the direction of RSK divisional director Claire Knighton: the third new acquisition to the division in recent months following RAW Technology Ltd in July and Geocore Site Investigations in August. Ecologia will continue to be led by current MD Giacomo Maini.

Maini said: "Ecologia has an established and growing reputation in the contaminated land industry. We are looking forward to taking the next step with the support of RSK's vast internal network and central resources. Joining forces will enable us to develop our core activities, expand our services and provide new opportunities for our employees."
