The purpose of site investigation is to establish parameters for foundation and substructure design; and to assess the potential contamination risks to humans, property and the environment.
Geotechnical engineering is the specialist branch of civil engineering concerned with the behaviour of earth materials and the application of soil and rock mechanics.
A contaminated land assessment is used to evaluate the potential for a pollution linkage and consider whether actions are required to manage or mitigate the risk.
RSA Geotechnics undertakes a range of in-situ and laboratory testing procedures to supplement and support our site investigation and consultancy services.
