Site Investigations & Assessments

Site Investigations and Assessments

There is increasing awareness and legislation concerning the use of Brownfield sites. Our experienced team can advise both purchasers and sellers on aspects of land liability and property due diligence. The management of contaminated or potentially contaminated land, involves a preliminary identification of risks due to the presence of contaminants, in order that appropriate action can be taken. A good site investigation assessment should aim to be clear, concise and comprehensive.   For this reason, the survey is divided into separate processes including:

  • Analysis and interpretation of historical and modern maps and photograph (desktop survey)
  • Archive and literature searches (desktop survey)
  • Historical chain of title and activities carried out on site including hazardous materials employed in the process walk-over surveys.
  • Planning, supervision and reporting of site investigations in accordance with BS 10175:2001 Code of Practice.
  • Borehole, surface water, interceptor, and foul water inspections
  • Sampling of contaminated soil and water for laboratory analysis
  • Gas assessments
  • Waste Classifications
