The project involved the demolition of a existing building that had asbestos present on it. Asbestos were removed prior to demolition and the process was properly documented for LEED.
During excavation works, a small portion of soil contaminated (with oil/diesel) was extracted, it was rejected from the landfill and moved to a special facility.
A survey of this soil was not conducted. Does this mean the credit is lost or can it be achieved only by documenting this remediation?

Martin, although the remediation had been completed, the credit is not necessarily lost if you have an environmental consultant confirm the fact that the on-site soils were contaminated and were properly remediated. That said, I can’t predict how an environmental consultant could confirm the on-site soils were contaminated if the consultant wasn’t on-site before the soils were removed.
