Supervision of Contamination Remedial Work

Supervision of contamination remedial works is normally necessary where fuel tank or contamination 'hot spot' removal is required.

Representative soil and groundwater samples will be taken and tested, sometimes supplemented with in-situ testing, to demonstrate that no unacceptable levels of contamination remain in the ground (and that no soil is unnecessarily removed/ treated).

Groundwater quality monitoring might also be undertaken to demonstrate that the remedial measures have improved groundwater quality.

Case Study

Ruddlesden geotechnical recently supervised the contamination remediation works for residential development of a former petrol filling station site in Exeter.

Case Study

Plate Bearing Testing for Wind Turbine, Devon

Ruddlesden geotechnical have recently undertaken plate bearing testing at a number of farms in Cornwall to validate geotechnical parameters, provided as part of a previous geotechnical investigation, used in the design of the wind turbine.
