What Could Delay Your Development Construction?
More than 50% of construction projects are delayed by adverse site conditions or unexpected ground conditions. Conducting detailed Site Investigation / Ground Investigations can save you time and money. There are many reason’s a development can be delayed, but one of the key factors that will affect a development is knowing what you are building on.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Earth Environmental were commissioned to undertake a ground investigation and to inform a new Environmental Permit Application at a Green Waste Composting Facility located in Yate Bristol.
The proposed site was used historically as a Colliery and as agricultural land prior to the current use.
To inform the Environmental Permit Application, our client required a survey to understand baseline environmental conditions for soils, groundwater and ground gas across the assessment site.

This Week is Radon Awareness Week with daily webinars at 10 am highlighting the the risks of Radon and what steps must be taken to minimise the risks. Including Radon Monitoring and Radon Detection in the workplace.
