Geotechnical and geoenvironmental

What we do

As well as offering a comprehensive suite of civil and structural engineering design services, Acies provides contaminated land and geotechnical services, working with fellow RSK Group company RSK Geosciences. These services include work that supports design and planning requirements.

Our colleagues at RSK Geosciences are spread nationwide across 18 offices, including several with ourselves, allowing ease of communication and cross collaboration. As and when required, we would be happy to provide these services as part of a wider one-stop-shop arrangement for engineering design services.

Services include

  • Pre-acquisition environmental due diligence assessments, either as a standalone survey or as part of wider structural surveys
  • Phase 1 desktop studies, typically required to support planning application submission and consider risks at RIBA stages 1–2
  • Phase 2 ground investigations, including contaminated land risk assessment and geotechnical engineering design to support building and foundation design
  • Phase 3a and 3b ground remediation, including design of remediation works to treat ground contamination and gas, as well as their subsequent validation
  • Waste screening assessments, materials management plans and other associated work
  • Specialist geotechnical and geoenvironmental assessments, including detailed quantitative risk assessments, slope stability, basement design, dewatering, earthworks performance specification and validation
  • Topographical and PAS 128 ground-penetrating radar surveys
