Geoenvironmental – Taylor Wimpey


The site of a former warehouse and textile mill was to be redeveloped but for various reasons the site was deemed unfit. Issues identified on site included a chimney, boiler house and an electricity
sub-station. An infilled sand pit was also identified on site through historical mapping. The buildings and chimney were subsequently demolished. The potential for sub-soil contamination and the presence of landfill gas was therefore identified on the site.
