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.

Geotechnical Site Investigation – Case Studies

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. Following a heavy  period of rain in February 2019 the slope moved by approximately 500mm with a classical circular slip evident.
Site Investigation for New Residential Development

Environmental & Geotechnical Site Investigation Residential Development

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical have been involved in Environmental & Geotechnical Site Investigation for a residential development in Barrow in Furness Cumbria. A previous consultancy practice had conducted a site investigation (and remediation strategy) on the site and concluded that half of the site required a piled foundation solution and extensive remediation including gas protection measures.

Soil & Groundwater Treatment with Remediation Strategy

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical have been involved in the assessment of ground conditions on the site for a number of years. The site is a shopping park which is being redeveloped and rejuvenated. Part of the site was a former fuel retailing facility which ceased trading over thirty years ago. There were no records relating to the operation or decommissioning of the site.

HM Coastguard had reported a section of the cliff had collapsed in early 2020. As part of the study, a Phase I Desk Study was carried out, including obtaining a site-specific geological and ground stability report.
Geotechnical Site Investigation and coal mining risk assessment

Site Investigation and Coal Mining Assessment in Bristol

,
