Urban and Brownfield Regeneration
RSA Geotechnics was formed in 1980 and its original purpose was to provide site investigation and geotechnical consultancy for clients within the civil engineering and construction sector. Following the growth in urban and brownfield development and an increased awareness of environmental issues we have provided specialist geoenvironmental assessment, remedial design and validation services for over twenty years.
The company has helped deliver contaminated land solutions for many urban and brownfield sites. We have undertaken a number of integrated geotechnical and contamination investigations, including asbestos audits, on existing and former residential, industrial and commercial sites.
Contamination and pollution risks are assessed as well as the foundation solutions and design recommendations for all aspects of below ground construction. The design for each investigation will need to consider many aspects including the following:
- pre-demolition environmental audit
- desk study and environmental assessment
- restricted access and low headroom drilling rigs
- influence of historic site use on proposed development
- risk assessment
- risk assessment, remediation strategy and validation
Our reports provide environmental assessments, remediation strategies and foundation recommendations. We frequently remain involved with the development project providing a validation service for the clean-up operations.
