Soil Testing

Soil Testing

Agb Environmental uses highly experienced geotechnical engineers to carry out ground condition analysis, soil testing and in-depth assessment of your project. Offering a wide range of geotechnical services, including soil testing, ground investigation and foundation solutions, agb Environmental can take into consideration the entire development to avoid time delays and future expense. Implementing a thorough investigation of your ground conditions by completing soil testing that involves both insitu & exsitu methods, our soil testing involves standard penetrometer tests, dynamic probing, soakage tests to BRE 365 and cone penetrometer tests. Able to test the quality of your soil through the use of hand auger sampling, machine excavated pits, dynamic sampling and a variety of drilling methods.

Soil testing is vital to discover whether your site harbours any contaminates that you need to be aware of during the planning stages. Our experienced team have worked with architects, engineers, developers and planning consultants, as well as government departments, so that you know your soil testing is in good hands. Catering for a full range of contaminated land studies, soil testing is an important part of the process that our team can then continue on to Phase 2 Site Investigations and Remediation Strategies.

For further information about soil testing, arrange a consultation with Alex Brearley on 01638 663226.

Validating Gas Membranes

Gas proof resistant membranes are installed to provide protection against harmful ground gases, including; methane, carbon dioxide, volatiles, hydrogen sulphide, carbon monoxide and radon gas, from being drawn into buildings by the pressure difference that exists between the inside and outside. These gases can accumulate to dangerous concentrations and should therefore be prevented from effecting end users.


Successful Tree Retention in Development

Trees can be a real asset to a development. Keeping existing trees, or planting new ones can help both to gain planning approval and to sell the properties. But it’s not just a simple case of keeping trees where they aren’t directly in the way, or planting new trees wherever there is space.


Your Snapshot Ecology Survey

Avoid delay on your development by scheduling ecology surveys when required. For further information please contact our in-house ecology team.
