Soil Testing

Our team of trained technicians will visit your site to take samples and conduct in-situ testing to identify any ground contamination present. With this information, we schedule chemical testing and correctly classify the soil. We use UKAS accredited laboratories with a full range of analytical equipment to identify hydrocarbons, poly aromatic hydrocarbons, heavy metals, asbestos, sulphates, BTEX and SVOCs that may be present in contaminated soils. Once a result is confirmed, we advise on how to move forward to remediation, to include bioremediation techniques and/or disposal if necessary, keeping costs low and minimising the effects on the environment.

In addition, we regularly perform asbestos identification and quantification testing, as well as on-site gas and PID monitoring and borehole water dipping. We have the ability to schedule physical performance testing of aggregate and soils to meet highways works specified requirements. We also conduct topsoil testing to BS3882, alongside the associated chemical testing. For more information regarding Top Soil click here.

Through our in house assessors we are able to deal with soil reports received very efficiently. Reports can be sent to soilreports@bristolandavon.co.uk. B&A Group will provide a comprehensive assessment of your muck away.
