WHO WE ARE
Site Surveys (also known as soil surveys and ground/site investigations) are important to understand the likely ground and ground water conditions in order that appropriate foundations can be designed. Unforeseen ground conditions can pose serious problems to developments leading to re-design of foundations, time delays and increased costs. These risks can be reduced by a well planned phased site survey incorporating Phase 1 and Phase 2 site investigations.
Infrastructure asset protection need to give significant consideration to the long term implications of climate change in the planning phase. As they often have lives of at least 50-100 years, they need to be designed to function long into the future, where weather patterns and climate are projected to be more aggressive than they are now.
Geo-Environmental have a team of highly qualified geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists, who have the technical skill to assess a slope and its specific conditions and to progress the assessment from site investigation to final modelling. Our engineers also have experience with carrying out back analysis on slopes that have already failed to determine the cause and recommendations on remedial measures.
Geo-Environmental can provide qualified persons (Chartered engineers, approved by CL:AIRE with the Code of Practice for Definition of Waste) and other experienced staff to ensure that soil is correctly classified and create the plans and strategies you need to manage your materials effectively.
All burials ultimately produce contaminants which over time will be released into the ground. The time taken to flush out these contaminants from the burial is directly related to the effective rainfall and infiltration rate through the soil and grave. The key issue is then a question of the fate and transport of these contaminants.
When producing our reports, Geo-Environmental utilise published information on climate, geology, soils and published DEFRA Provisional (pre-1988) ALC (agricultural land classification) information, together with information on rural land designations, for example, agri-environmental schemes, forestry and woodland schemes and other land based schemes, in order to judge what classification to recommend for the land. In some cases it may be necessary to undertake an intrusive soil and agriculture land assessment investigation to identify specific soil properties.
