We have considerable experience in the assessment of contaminated land issues. It is imperative that potential issues are identified and assessed realistically at an early stage in planning, in order that the implications are fully understood and costs minimised.
Services we provide include:
We have extensive experience in all aspects of geotechnical assessments, from scoping of ground investigations and drilling boreholes, through in situ and laboratory testing to interpretation, advice and liaison with regulators and other professionals.
To satisfy the demanding requirements of a wind turbine, adequate site investigation is essential to evaluate the bearing capacity, amount and rate of settlement, stress, and deformation, overall stability, durability and dynamic behaviour of the foundation. The best site investigations are designed to provide sufficient technical information in the most economical manner. We work closely with the turbine manufacturers and use our knowledge of suitable techniques in the anticipated ground conditions to ensure best value for money.
Primarily used to support the design and construction of wind and hydro projects, the geotechnical team can also provide a stand-alone service to clients for a wide range of projects, from a single house to large industrial developments.
The company has considerable experience in the assessment of mining issues and the design and supervision of remedial works to cope with mineral stability issues to allow development to proceed.
