Desk Study

An essential part of any site investigation is an early understanding of the likely ground conditions and past uses of the site.

The Desk Study includes a review of available historical information to check the anticipated geology, geomorphology and any previous uses or changes to the site. It also includes a walkover inspection by one of our trained staff to check the current layout of the site, to map any exposed geology and to record any visible evidence of previous site uses.

The information obtained is used to help plan the scope of any Insitu Investigation.
