Geotechnical Site Investigation
Figure reduced from £2m to £500k
In order to refine a suitable scope of ground investigation works for the initial Phase 1 development area and as a cost- effective measure, we carried out a Phase 1 PRA for the whole of the development site. We liaised with the design team to confirm that the final scope of works would satisfy all parties and to agree a suitable method of working, given the presence of ecological constraints including bat roosts, Japanese knotweed and great crested newts.
Our site investigation combined several methods including dynamic window samples, cable percussive drilling, trial pitting, hand pitting, service excavations and soakaway tests. We carried out a full range of geotechnical and contamination testing, providing an interpretative report and separate Geotechnical Design Report.
