A Basement Impact Assessments, also known as a BIA, is a report that details the risks involved in excavating the basement of your property or development. Basement works are often complex undertakings and can involve the movement of large quantities of excavated earth. This can undermine nearby buildings, or displace underground water impacting groundwater flows and potentially surface water and sewerage. There can also be concerns that your subterranean development could impact the wider environment such as trees, garden spaces, and the wider environment.
It is imperative to have a clear understanding of the potential impact your basement development could have and the risks involved. So a Basement Impact Assessment is an essential step.
