Structural Soils has expertise in residential, mixed-use and industrial property schemes with a full range of services to support the full life cycle of your project.
Our multidisciplined teams include engineers, geologists and environmental scientists who can advise on suitable methods of investigation and study for individual projects ranging from small-scale domestic investigations, such as house extensions, to larger major civil engineering works. We carry out investigations using our own in-house resources and can provide factual or interpretive reports to achieve the particular project goals, such as pre-acquisition studies, preliminary or design investigations, or to meet planning or regulatory requirements.
Regulatory requirements mean that developers of sites must ensure that there are no significant risks to human health or the environment. The same obligations apply to all owners of existing operational sites for the safety of their staff or other site users. The requirements for the environmental assessment of contaminated land and waste streams from construction are becoming ever more stringent. Structural Soils can assist clients to manage or mitigate these risks though its geoenvironmental services service.
Structural Soils, alongside its well-known role as a ground investigation contractor, has a strong history of providing geotechnical interpretation and advice, based on its own investigations and those of others. We are able to deliver practical, robust and value-engineered ground investigation and design solutions tailored to project requirements. Geoenvironmental services is undertaken on a wide range of issues, including bearing capacity and settlement calculations; assessments of piles, pavements and earthworks; slope stability analysis; and interpretation of in-situ testing results.
We are able to offer many complementary services as part of RSK, a recognised leading environmental consultancy in the UK property sector (currently ranked second in the UK for contaminated land by Environment Analyst). These include legislative and regulatory support, environmental impact assessment, asbestos surveys and site remediation.
