Site Investigation

BEK has extensive experience in the design and implementation of site investigation works to facilitate the assessment of ground conditions across a variety of projects from single residential properties or large residential/commercial developments. These investigations are all about risk communication and how you can move forward; typically undertaken as part of contamination, geotechnical and coal mining assessments.

At BEK we have carried out field works across a wide variety of brownfield sites including but not limited to: gas workspetrol stationsformer cotton millsRAF bases and operational retail estates.

Many site investigations are often preceded by a Preliminary Risk Assessment which provides a review of all relevant background information (including previous and present contaminative uses) to provide a scope of works from which to carry out site investigation.

A wide range of field investigation techniques (please see below) can be employed to understand ground conditions. At BEK our experienced teams will tailor an investigation to suit the needs of the client incorporating a variety of in situ geo-technical testing and sampling techniques to address both geo-technical and/or contamination issues. Our experienced and proactive nature dictates that however challenging the logistics or tight the time scales we can consistently deliver cost-effective projects to a high standard.
