Development & Construction

Delivering investigations to support this sector is our ‘bread and butter’ work and we’ve worked on providing reports to discharge planning conditions from everything from the smallest single-story extensions to some of the tallest and high value buildings in Manchester and London.

Site investigations to discharge contaminated land conditions and information on ground conditions, Flood Risk Assessments and studies to discharge conditions relating to surface water and sustainable drainage, connections to foul, and new treatment plants are our core business.

We have also handled some unqiue needs and survey requests over the years; from an anthrax survey at a North West railway station, to a hunt for missing radiation. Our work with our partners means we can specialise in unusual and bespoke types of one-off investigations.
