We support clients through all phases of a development or project

Owners of operational sites and sites to be developed must ensure that the sites pose no significant risks to human health or the environment and that they comply with regulatory requirements and/or planning conditions. Structural Soils’ geoenvironmental team can assist in managing or mitigating these risks, including asbestos-related risks, for all site types, including housing, fuel filling stations, tanneries and landfill sites. Our clients are private individuals and residential and commercial developers, investors and government bodies.

Detailed support for all types of sites

This may include, at the initial stage, pre-acquisition site surveys and investigations to establish potential risk, including desk studies, site reconnaissance and preliminary risk assessments. Where risks requiring investigation have been identified, we design and undertake exploratory ground investigations, culminating in assistance throughout the development stage (e.g., remediation and validation) to achieve planning conditions sign off. For small developments or projects, our services may include analysing soil samples and interpreting the findings for planning condition, waste disposal or material assessment purposes. We conduct risk-based brownfield site assessments to avoid unnecessary site remediation, provide remedial method statements, when required, and undertake the validation of that remediation. We carry out detailed risk assessments for landfill-type gases, as well as remedial target methodology (RTM) detailed quantitative risk assessments for risks to groundwater resources.

Led by excellence

Our ground engineers design and conduct ground investigation work for geotechnical and geoenvironmental purposes. Our in-house UKAS-accredited chemical testing laboratory provides results of the soil, water, gas and vapour analysis, enabling us to produce interpretive or factual reports. Our breadth of experience in contracting and consultancy, as well as our extensive experience of liaison with regulators, has propelled us to being the preferred consultant for many developers.
