Site Investigations & Environmental Reporting - from Industrial Use to Domestic and Commercial Re-development



Site Investigations

The 'Practice' has undertaken many site investigations over the years as part of its full service to its clients. This has been to determine the correct foundation types for new houses, house extensions, residential, commercial and industrial redevelopments. 


Site investigations that this 'Practice' has undertaken over the years include,


  • Trial hole exposures to determine soil types and their general bearing capacity
  • Laboratory testing and reporting
  • Site borings down to depths of 50 metres and their soil analysis
  • Bearing capacity calculations to determine type of foundation required
  • Full reporting - findings and recommendations of relevant foundation's types



Costs of Site Investigations

Cost vary, but as a guide the following are present appraisals at May 2009,


  • House extensions - 150
  • New homes - 250 (incl. report)
  • NHBC foundation check lists (incl. report) - 250 
  • Laboratory testing and report - from 550 to 1,750
  • Site borings and analysis - from 2,500 to 4,500
  • Bearing capacity calculations - 150 to 500
  • Full reporting (additional to all above) - 300 to 1,250 



Environmental Reporting

Redevelopment of former industrial sites requires statutory appraisal of the nature of the soils and the identification of toxic elements.


The 'Practice' has undertaken several major environmental reports and where some have been 'combined' reports incorporating both full environmental and structural elements. We are therefore well experienced and knowledgeable in undertaking these in-depth reports.


Costs of integrated Environmental Reporting

Cost vary again, but as a guide the following are present appraisals at May 2009,


  • New single houses and extensions - 1,250 to 2,500
  • Small residential housing developments - 3,500 to 12,500
  • Large residential housing developments - 20,000 to 40,000
  • Small industrial redevelopments - 3,500 to 6,000
  • Large industrial redevelopments - 25,000 to 50,000
