Pierce, the Blackburn-based business advisory and accountancy group, has been chosen to support a recently established business in its ambitious growth plans. Earth Environmental & Geotechnical, headquartered in Stockport and with an office in Somerset, carries out surveys for the property, financial, chemical, legal, mining and construction industries.

The business is managed by Adam Czarnecki, a former Blackburn resident, and was founded to provide bespoke, cost effective and pragmatic solutions to clients.

Pierce group was brought on board by Adam to support the business as it was established, providing tax advice, and to plan for future growth.

Adam said: “It’s an exciting time to be establishing a new business after a painful recession and we are seeing real signs of improvement.  So far business has been excellent with numerous orders from all parts of the UK”.

We are planning steady growth over coming years and look to Pierce to support us in our strategy.

Gary Speak, associate director at Pierce, said: “Adam and his team have vast experience in the sector, and bring real value to their clients.  With our knowledge of the construction industry, Pierce will be able to offer valuable support to the business.

NOTES TO EDITORS:

Pierce is an award-winning business advisory and accountancy group, employing nearly 80 staff in Blackburn.

It has a number of specialist teams including audit and accountancy; corporate finance; taxation; business consultancy; family business; forensic accountancy, construction industries, and small business support. It was founded in 1929.

Earth Environmental & Geotechnical have recently secured a number of contracts involving Phase I Desk Studies, Site Investigations, development of remedial strategies and supervising remediation.

The fact that we are being routinely procured to assess potential new residential and commercial sites for investors and developers suggests to us that we are now moving out of a prolonged period of recession.

The work has involved us working in all parts of the British Isles with a new industrial development in Edinburgh and several new residential developments in Wigan, Devon, Cornwall, Stoke-on-Trent, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, the South East and London.

Notable recent contract wins include;

Wigan

Development of Remedial Strategy and Materials Management plan for a remediation contractor on a residential site where a previous consultant advised for all made ground to be removed offsite as Hazardous Waste. Our staff developed a strategy involving retention of materials on site within a landscaping area beneath a cover system.

Site investigation and ground gas assessment for new residential site previously assessed by a consultant as requiring deep boreholes to assess ground gas regime and use of piled foundations. Our geotechnical knowledge and pragmatic environmental monitoring strategy established that shallow foundations could be adopted without the need for ground gas mitigation measures. The report was submitted to the local authority and relevant conditions discharged within two working days.

Stoke-on-Trent

Development of Phase I Desk Study and Mining Risk Assessment for redevelopment of former community hall for a residential end use.

Winsford

A Phase I Desk Study commissioned for a large national developer has thrown up a few interesting development constraints on a greenfield site. The site is located outside of the Cheshire Brine Subsidence Board Consultation area; however a forensic assessment of historical geological maps, geological memoirs together with aerial geomorphological mapping has shown that a proportion of the site has suffered subsidence in the past 1850-1960’s due to brine pumping.

Future work will involve acquisition of satellite data to assess ground movements over a ten year period and site investigations for foundation design purposes.

Manchester

Negotiations of planning conditions associated with industrial unit developed adjacent to a highly gassing landfill facility. A future phase of work will involve drilling of boreholes, use of downhole in-situ infra-red gas analysers and flame ionisation detector monitoring within building units.

London

Development of remedial strategy for a housing site in London area, on part of a former gas manufacturing site. Previous consultants advised on use of piled foundations, 1000mm thick cover system and second phase of site investigation work to assess contaminated perched water risks to controlled waters. Our staff have developed a scheme using shallow foundations and provided a quantitative risk to controlled waters based upon existing data. A future phase of work will involve construction of a remedial strategy and validation of cover system in garden areas.

A developer faced substantial construction issues on site due to the use of a consultant that conducted a site investigation and used a commercial chemical testing laboratory without formal UKAS accreditation for several tests. As a result we negotiated with the local authority on a proposed scope of work including a Phase I Desk Study and validation of imported cover system. Our staff sourced a reliable source of topsoil and supervised the installation of a 300mm thick cover system in front and rear garden areas. A validation report was produced and accepted within three working days.
