Desk Study

Desk Study

The key to the future is often found in the past, this is never more relevant than in the assessment and redevelopment of land.  Desk studies are an essential first stage of the site assessment, evaluation and investigation process. Historical researches into previous uses of sites and their immediate environ are invaluable in identifying and assessing potential liabilities associated with a site and the requirements for ground investigation and remediation, not only from an geo-environmental perspective, but also for geotechnical purposes. A well researched and interpreted desk study not only allows potential pollutant linkages present on the site to be identified but also allows the cost effective design of site investigation work, targeting specific areas of contamination or geotechnical parameters.

Our experience and skills in land quality assessment spans aspects of geology, hydrogeology, geochemistry and geotechnics, makes us ideally qualified to assist you with the desk based assessment of land in line with current guidance and to the standards required by regulatory bodies like the Environment Agency, National House Building Council and local authorities.
