Our specialist services include
We will take your project from the planning stages to an environmental permit in the fastest time possible.
Our permitting team will meet to discuss your site requirements, obtain all the information needed, then commence negotiations with the Environment Agency immediately.
• Phase 1
We will identify what is needed from either your existing information or by conducting a desktop survey whilst discussing with you the proposed extent. The initial report will identify past and present use of the site, review of environmental information, identify potential sources of contamination, risks to groundwater and human health and advise on the necessary requirements to take in the next phase.
• Phase 2
Our engineers attend your site with the necessary equipment to conduct an intrusive investigation, undertaking trial pits and the installation of boreholes where required with minimum disruption to your operation. We will recover surface and sub surface soil and groundwater samples for analysis at UKAS laboratories.
The subsequent report will contain the relevant information up front, in a plain to understand summary, using modelling techniques in line with the relevant guidance.
• Phase 3
If there are risks that are not controlled and you need further assistance we will assist you in designing a remediation strategy to get your site to the required standard.
We have good working relationships with the Environment Agency and a wealth of experience in negotiations over critical items.
Whether you need to develop a rationale for site investigations (making sure you carry our all that is necessary but keeping costs to a manageable level) or you just need advice on future operations – we can help.
