Richard Jackson Ltd were appointed to undertake ground investigation works in connection with the proposed sale and redevelopment of a former dairy at Mildenhall, Suffolk.
An extensive investigation was designed to address the siteâ€™s previous use and to take into account the existing buildings and overground tanks.
Both geotechnical and geo-environmental works were undertaken including chemical analysis of both soil and groundwater. This allowed an assessment of the risk to the development posed by contamination, and costs associated with design and construction, to be assessed.
Subsequently a successful planning application for a change of use from industrial to residential was made by the client.
