As a geotechnical and environmental consultancy, we can provide all of the testing and advice for foundations for PV panels, battery storage plants, substations and ancillary infrastructure. We can also provide the chemical testing for pH value of soils and soil corrosivity analysis and soil thermal resistivity testing. This is in addition to all of our comprehensive site investigation and testing abilities.
However, there is a growing trend to situate renewable energy sites on brownfield land and an assessment is required to ensure that any contamination present is not mobilised, posing a risk to human health and the natural environment. Geo-Environmental have undertaken a number of environmental assessments on former brownfield sites including landfill sites and can support you in tackling the challenges posed by developing potentially contaminated land, helping you minimise risks and realise assets.
