Ground Gas Risk Assessment

BEK has a wealth of experience providing a proactive assessment of the risks from ground gas. These soil gases can arise from several sources including landfill sites, made ground, organic-rich strata and contaminated soils.

Our experts ensure we tailor the optimum approach to the site’s requirements. This approach could include a quantitative assessment based on a site-specific conceptual model to a qualitative assessment including the installation of gas monitoring probes in boreholes followed by a period of monitoring gas concentration flow rates.

If potential risks have been identified then BEK can provide the design of gas protection details as well as the supervision and validation of gas mitigation measures to satisfy the requirements of project stakeholders and regulators (we ensure the assessment of the risks follow the BS8485 and CIRIA 665 guidance documents).
