Northpoint completed a Phase 2 Site Investigation for a residential development in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. Proposals comprise the construction of approximately 170 residential properties with private driveways and a new estate road.

Due to the complexity of the underlying geology, extensive investigations included a geophysical survey, rotary probing and cable percussive boreholes. These works targeted underlying coal seams and geological anomalies.

Northpoint provided the client with a geoenvironmental assessment and cost-effective foundation solutions, noting the geological hazards beneath the site.
