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.

Earthworks Modelling and Geotechnical Design

Earthworks Modelling and Geotechnical Design : Settle3

, ,
Earth Environmental & Geotechnical have acquired another Rocscience software programme, Settle3, to assist with our clients earthworks modelling and geotechnical design projects. Settle3 is a three-dimensional programme for the analysis of vertical settlement and consolidation under surface loads, such as foundations, embankments and surface excavations.

Radon Monitoring and Detection : Insitu with Markus 10

, ,
Radon Monitoring and detection is an essential assessment required in risk areas throughout the UK. Earth Environmental & Geotechnical have invested in a MARKUS 10 instrument that allows for in-situ measurement of radon gas in soils. If you are planning a new residential or commercial development the Markus 10 can provide a clear understanding of the radon levels in the soil of your development site and can quickly allow for an informed decision whether the development requires radon mitigation measures.

Development of Brownfield Land : Focus for Housing Development

, ,
The development of Brownfield land will continue to be a focus for the next few years in the aim to provide much needed housing throughout the UK. The Government hopes to transform unused and derelict buildings, while making the most of brownfield land. Also to tackle the housing shortage in urban areas by enabling commercial premises to be converted into new homes through a fast-track planning permission process.

The Coal Authority in July 2011 formalised their requirements in relation to planning applications (except householder developments) in England, Scotland and Wales and introduced new terminology relating to Coal Mining Development Areas.

We offer a fixed price Coal Mining Risk Assessment for £395.00 + VAT.

Plate Bearing Test

The Plate Bearing Test (or Plate Loading Test) is an in-situ field test used to determine the ultimate bearing capacity of rocks and soils and anticipated settlement beneath an imposed load.

Radon Monitoring & Detection

In partnership with Radonova we provide Radon monitoring in existing commercial and residential properties. We are also launching our new service – Ecotrak®. This allows for assessment of radon soil gas. Ecotrak® monitoring allows developers make an informed decision whether a NEW residential or commercial property requires radon mitigation measures.

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.
Slope Stability Assessment

Geotechnical Appraisal : Cliff Collapse Newquay, Cornwall

,
Earth Environmental & Geotechnical (Southern) Ltd were commissioned to undertake a Geotechnical Appraisal for cliff stability of a site near Watergate Bay in Newquay, Cornwall. 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

,
Earth Environmental & Geotechnical (Southern) Ltd were commissioned to undertake a combined coal mining assessment and geo-environmental site investigation for a site in Bristol for a proposed new residential development. The site was located in a development high risk area associated with mine entries and possible shallow depth unrecorded mine workings.
