Site Investigation

“You pay for a site investigation whether you have one or not”

Thorough site investigations are crucial in the design process. They should be a carefully considered sequence of information gathering activities with each step informing the next. Initially information is gathered from documentary sources such as:

- Geological maps
- Mining abandonment plans
- Contamination and geological databases
- Historical maps
- Aerial photographs
- Local histories
- Public records

Thereafter, the inspection and logging of trial pits, excavation of boreholes, site and laboratory testing are carried out as appropriate.

This information is then written into our final report which clearly details our conclusions and recommendations based upon the evidence gathered.

Often it is through the careful assessment and consideration all the information available at this point in the design process that both time and money can be saved.
