Perform a site investigation including full geotechnical appraisal.
BEK Engineers have recently completed Phase 1 and Phase 2 site investigation works at a farm in Westhoughton as part of a full geotechnical appraisal to characterise the ground conditions. Site investigation works included drilling several small diameter boreholes and 3 x 30 m rotary boreholes to assess potential risks associated with historic coal mine workings. No significant issues identified and the development is able to proceed without any significant further assessment.
