Comprehensive and informative geotechnical engineering

Here at Earth Environmental & Geotechnical we are routinely commissioned to provide Coal Mining Risk Assessments (CMRA) to accompany planning applications.
A CMRA is required when a relevant development falls within a Coal Authority development high risk area, due to either former underground workings, potential shallow mineworkings or abandoned mineshafts.

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical (North East) Ltd were proud to be working with INEOS at it’s Saltend Site, Hull.

As the appointed Ground Investigation consultant it was great to be coordinating a wide range of specialist Investigations including deep boreholes, thermal and electrical resistivity, crosshole seismic and CPT in preparation for the £150m new Hull facility. Good to see this investment in the UK.

Coal Mine Shaft Collapses: Each Year in the UK an Average of 15 Mine Shafts Collapse.
Are You Aware of the Risks of Historical Coal Mining and Mining Activity and How It Can Impact Your Existing Site or Proposed Development? A Coal Mining Risk Assessment’s aim is to identify site specific coal mining risks and set out the proposed mitigation strategy to show that the site can be made safe and stable for the development being proposed.

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical are listed in Ground Engineering Top 50 Geotechnical Firms. A very proud moment for the Directors of the business and not a bad effort after seven years!

Earth Environmental New Project. Our North East Office has secured £100,000 plus a contract working with a global manufacturer of petrochemicals, speciality chemicals and oil products

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical are preparing a Material Management Plan (#MMP) for the importation of surplus soils, on a construction site, that are to be used on a new large residential development in Blackburn.

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical are involved in the detailed design of coal mine stabilisation measures for a large residential development

The Plate Bearing Test is an in-situ field test to determine the ultimate bearing capacity of rocks, soils and settlement beneath an imposed load

See an example of a Coal Mining Risk Assessment or CMRA. The CMRA report will identify the risks from coal mining and what needs to be done.
