Leyden Kirby Associates win North West Innovation Park contract

Land remediation expert, Leyden Kirby Associates, has won a contract from Miller Construction to treat a Japanese Knotweed infestation at the site of the planned ú8m Salford Innovation Park.

The 5,500m▓ Frederick Road site forms part of Salford's multi-million pound regeneration programme. The Innovation Park initiative is led by Salford City Council, the University of Salford and the Northwest Development Agency.

Leyden Kirby's remediation contract covers an area of 550m▓ and will take three weeks to complete. The firm's pioneering Japanese Knotweed treatment is estimated to have saved 90% of the cost and time associated with conventional methods, and satisfied stringent Environment Agency requirements.

Building work will begin in April 2006 and is due for completion in May 2007.
The aim of the Innovation Park is to promote Salford's economic development by advising and supporting small local businesses and creating a meeting place for businesses, education providers and community groups.
