With an increasing proportion of developments occurring on previously developed 'Brownfield Sites' and ever more challenging greenfield sites chosen for development. there has never been a greater need to carry out adequate site investigations. A suitable site investigation can often allow contractors to forsee potential problems in the ground leading to long term project cost savings.
Castle Rock Geotech employs a wide variety of site investigation techniques from desk studies to fieldwork to suit any size project. We can advise on suitable methods for individual projects ranging from small subsidence investigations to foundation design projects for major civil engineering works.
Generally the following site investigation techniques are employed for a majority of projects:
The results of site investigations can be presented as either factual or interpretative bound reports with recommendations relating to both geotechnical and environmental considerations.
