Soil and Water Testing
Based on the conceptual site model in the Phase 1 desk study, our consultants produce the investigation and assessment strategies that are used to determine likely geotechnical and geo-environmental constraints or issues on a site and from these, relevant sampling and testing regimes are undertaken by our site engineers. Geo-Environmental in partnership with K4 Soils Ltd can undertake geotechnical testing to BS 1377:1990, ISRM Suggested Methods, and non-standard tests to suit a client’s specific design requirements. We can undertake environmental analysis in partnership with ELAB. Their services include air/gas, soil and water analysis, inorganics and organics analysis, chemical testing, metals analysis, as well as asbestos identification, waste characterisation testing and waste acceptance criteria (WAC). ELAB is accredited by UKAS to ISO 17025 for asbestos identification and for a range of soil and water tests. It also holds MCERTS accreditation for a range of soil tests. Our consultants undertake generic quantitative or detailed quantitative risk assessments with respect to human health and other sensitive receptors such as controlled waters”.
