What We Do

GroundConditions

Geo-environmental

We design cost effective site investigations to determine the physical/mechanical and chemical properties of materials that make up the ground, allowing for early identification of any constraints from ground related issues.

Investigation techniques

  • Inspection pits
  • Trial pit testing
  • Window sampling
  • Cable percussive boreholes
  • Rotary boreholes
  • Infiltration testing

With the appropriate site investigation undertaken we can provide an indication of the risk our clients might face in terms of the constraints, costs and timescales for a project. Based on the investigation, we can also make recommendations for a variety of relevant geotechnical solutions including foundation design, piling, groundwater issues, and retaining wall design with respect to the very latest industry standards, and developments.

Contaminated Land

We provide competitive and comprehensive assessments for contaminated land and brownfield sites, comprising desk top studies and environmental due diligence reports through to remedial works.
