The AAe geo-environmental team undertake intrusive investigations to determine the environmental and geotechnical properties of developments, waste and regeneration sites. The selection of technique depends upon the proposed development and purpose of the investigation.
Investigation techniques include:
- soakaway tests (BRE Digest 365)
- trial pitting and trenching
- Window Sampling, rotary, dynamic probing and cable percussive boreholes
- DCP and plate bearing tests
AAe are not constrained by any one technique and can tailor solutions to Client requirements for both optimum results and cost effectiveness.
All soils are logged to industry standards and samples managed in line with quality procedures. Environmental and geotechnical analysis are undertaken at partnering UKAS and MCERTs accredited laboratories where we have long standing relationships.
In addition to laboratory works, AAe field teams can undertake a variety of on-site testing of soils, gas and groundwater.
