Our Process For Soil Testing & Assessment

Once we have fully reviewed your soil we will advise, based on the testing, the best option. By identifying the correct regulations from the inception of your project we can help ensure your project remains compliant and cost-effective.

Using trained site engineers, we are able to visit your construction site to sample materials in-situ or in stockpile. The samples are then packaged up and sent to an independent UKAS accredited laboratory where they are analysed for specific marker compounds and elements to determine the levels of contamination, if any, within each sample.

Once the results have been returned, our experienced technical staff will review the chemical results to ascertain the material characterisation, based on relevant criteria, for reuse, recovery, treatment or disposal. To help our clients we issue the results along with a detailed site sampling plan and material classification table illustrating the different materials on site. The report will clearly advise you on the sample results and the potential options available.

This process then allows you to manage your subsoil and ultimately reduce the costs based on the classifications. We ensure information is turnaround as quickly as possible to minimise delays to your project.
