Development of Brownfield Land

What are Brownfield Sites?

Most of the land that was once used for industry in this country laid redundant for many years. But where demand for residential and commercial property is high, and available green spaces are low, brownfield sites have become an increasingly popular development opportunity. Brownfield land is seen as a great development option and everyone is keen to see brownfield sites brought back to life.  Contact us for Geotechnical Site Investigation Services.

Basement Impact Assessment

Ground Investigation And Basement Impact Assessment

Earth Environmental were commissioned to undertake a deep window sample borehole ground investigation and basement impact assessment at an existing property in London. The property had limited access for a proposed deep basement development (circa 6-8m) Access to the drilling locations required all drilling equipment to be transported through the occupied property which excluded many typical drilling techniques (which often require vehicle access as a minimum).
Stability assessment golf course

Slope Stability Assessment & Remedial Design Wilmslow Golf Club

Earth Environmental were requested complete a slope stability assessment and develop remedial designs at Wilmslow Golf Club. This was to assess the stability of a slope by the 18th green. For a number of years there was slippage of the footpath at the top of the slope.
