Contamination Assessment

In recent years, due to government policies, an increasing number of developments are being built on brownfield sites. Managing the risks of contaminated land can often determine the success of a project.

All work is undertaken in accordance with current UK best practice and the latest guidance (British Standards, Environment Agency, NHBC, CIRIA, BRE, LQM/ CIEH, CL:AIRE) so that all the approvals from the various regulatory authorities may be readily obtained.

Contamination assessment services may be integrated with, or separate from, geotechnical consultancy services.

Case Study

Case Study

BRE 470 Platform Design, Paignton

A significant thickness of made ground and underlying soft clay soils were encountered during a geotechnical investigation, necessitating the use of piled foundations for a proposed residential development site in Paignton. To facilitate the piling works, a working platform was required.
