A flood risk assessment is required when making a planning application for a development which is located in the floodplain or in an area affected by flooding. You need to undertake a flood risk assessment for most developments within one of the flood zones. Find out more about Flood Risk Assessments

Rotary drilling is used to collect soil and rock strata samples, or to form deep observation boreholes as part of Geotechnical and Environmental ground investigations. This is a fast drilling technique used where penetration is required through very dense soils and rock to investigate the sub-surface conditions of a development site.

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical have recently secured many prestigious new projects including pre-acquisition due diligence surveys, wind farm projects, solar farm projects, coal mining site investigations, geotechnical site investigations and slope stability assessments. We are recruiting throughout UK to support our future growth and expansion

Trial pits are used to determine the ground conditions as part of the site investigation.
Trial Pits are a site investigation technique used to assess the ground conditions, soil profiles, and groundwater conditions on a site where construction or development is planned. Trial pits are dug before the construction starts.

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical North East were commissioned to complete Geotechnical Site Investigation with Mineral Resource Assessment and a Mining Risk Assessment. Mineral Resource Assessment and a Mining Risk Assessment were compiled which satisfied the insurance company and the development could proceed, so the client was delighted.

What is a Site Investigation / What are Site Investigations?
A site investigation is used to assess the ground conditions and sub surface structure of a development site or property. The site investigation will collect geotechnical and environmental data and information to determine if the specific site is suitable for the planned development proposal.
The scope of the investigations and techniques used will depend on a range of factors including:

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical Regional Office South was commissioned to complete a  Site Investigation in Guildford which led to Rotary Sonic Drilling Borehole Investigations. Ground investigation works were undertaken to support the investigation, design and reconstruction of a roadway and bridge embankment which had suffered significant subsidence due to badger activity.

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical Reading office was commissioned to undertake a geo-environmental phase 1 desk-top study and subsequent ground investigation in an unoccupied residential property to examine ground conditions for foundation design and to assess the soil and ground gas contamination levels for the future development.

Regional Office: South commissioned to undertake a ground investigation to investigate ground condition for geotechnical design at a site in Frilford. EEGSL had earlier been commissioned to carry out soak-away testing on this site, however the client then required further geotechnical investigation and requested it to be combined with current archaeological investigations on site.
