Today more than ever the major players in construction and engineering are focusing on health, safety and managing risk. So that our clients ensure a positive and safe and legal outcome to their projects, we deliver a range of ground investigation services that are second to none.
Our clients regularly benefit from our ‘turn-key’ approach to ground investigation, a service that covers everything from initial investigation to site engineering services during construction (setting-out of earthworks, foundations, formwork and structures etc).
From Phase 1 site walkovers and desk studies leading to Phase 2 geotechnical ground investigation, from land condition assessments to ground gas assessments, from foundation and contaminated land assessments and from remedial design, project management and supervision… All of these services and more are provided by our ground investigation department and are supported by other services such as utilities mapping.
Failing to manage the risk on site by evaluating ground conditions or the behaviour of materials poses the single greatest threat to the progression and budget of any project. We work alongside our clients to mitigate these risks and keep each and every job on track.
Land Contamination Consultancy
Failing to carry out adequate contaminated land surveys can frequently result in hidden costs. Our specialist ground investigation consultancy allows clients to assess and control land contamination, manage their potential liabilities and fulfil their regulatory obligations.
Desk studies precede cable percussion boreholes, rotary boring, driven window sampler boreholes and vacuum excavation methods. Merely a sample of the ground investigation services we provide, all of these are supported by our laboratory testing capabilities.
Our UKAS and ISO9001:2008 accredited partner laboratories deliver a range of testing services covering the entire project cycle including construction materials, soil testing, pile testing and earthworks. Laboratory testing can be employed in isolation or in combination with our other ground investigation or structural investigation services.
Flood Risk Assessment
With a large amount of the country at risk from flooding, the planning process in such areas has become understandably more restrictive. Flood risk assessments use measured topographic information to assess the risk of flooding under specified conditions. We keep our ground investigation clients on-side with the Environment Agency and provide in-depth and constructive advice to manage risk effectively. Do you need a flood risk assessment? You will if your site is in a flood zone or is over 1ha.
We work throughout the UK for engineering clients, house builders and developers both large and small.
