The benefit of Geoenvironmental Site Investigations for Land Redevelopment & Acquisition

Updated: Oct 11, 2023

Geoenvironmental investigations are essential for enabling redevelopment of land as well as being an essential tool for quantifying liabilities prior to acquisition of land or liabilities associated with on-going operations. Properly executed geoenvironmental investigations will aid in delivering time and cost-effective solutions to help achieve your business needs.

By correctly phasing geoenvironmental site investigations in accordance with current guidelines, costs and timescales can be minimised. Investigations start with a desk-based study and review of available information. A correctly undertaken desk study will focus additional resources in to designing an effective intrusive investigation and assessment.

All investigations follow the relevant frameworks, depending on the nature of the assessment required. This might include but not be limited to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), BS10175 and/or Land Contamination Risk Management (LCRM) and regional/international equivalents. By following the correct methodologies, the desired outcomes can be achieved in a timely and cost effective manner.
