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.
