The purpose of site investigation is fundamentally risk mitigation; reducing the risk by identifying ground hazards, establishing the suitability and feasibility of a project and highlighting areas of risk and potential cost. Site investigation should be regarded as a fundamental first step of any development process thus enabling appropriate consideration in the design stages of a project.
Whether your project requires an assessment of the ground profile, the provision of geotechnical parameters to assist in foundation design, planning compliance, an assessment of the environmental hazards with a subsequent risk assessment, a remediation strategy or a combination of all these factors – we can help.
We offer a nationwide service and can provide a solution for all aspects of site investigation, from the initial desk study and research phase through surveying to intrusive investigation, laboratory testing and reporting.
We can help with the planning and costing of a site investigation, often providing cost saving alternative techniques. We can also advise on plant access and site investigation methods to suit.
The focus of any site investigation is the production of quality data. We have the reputation and credentials to provide this focus. Our management systems are ISO accredited for Quality, Environment and Health and Safety. We also hold multiple scheme certifications and are audited to RISQS and UVDB for working in the rail and utilities sectors.
"The P60 enabled us to carry out the ground investigation in a position with difficult access and with restricted working times in a highways environment. Having the rotary capability of the P60 rig allowed us to drill to the required depth quickly and efficiently. The mule attached to the P60 rig provided a safe working platform for all staff on site"
