Our Process

Work begins with an initial consultation to discuss the feasibility of your project. We will then perform a desk study, which highlights key risks, considers the history of your site and lays the foundations for how we will carry out our full site investigation.

When performing site investigations in South Yorkshire and the wider area, we will take into account the industrial and mining legacy of the site and offer advice on how to navigate/mitigate the risks. We will also perform a full ground investigation both on-site and in our laboratory to assess everything from soil quality to hazards. This study helps us gather the data we need to offer insight-driven design advice for your site.

From this stage we offer both remediation and validation works followed by a design consultation to help you make the most of your site and to ensure you can build safely and efficiently on the ground.
