We have been working in recent months on a sub-consultancy basis to support a housing developer resolve a slope stability issue on a confidential site. The geological conditions at the site indicated periglacial landslips may be present, with consequential slope stability and retaining wall stability issues. Working closely with the developer and structural engineer, we have undertaken investigations of the site and are presently resolving whether the current design needs to be amended at all.
Though a small commission, the project is a good illustration of the benefits of taking a multi-disciplinary approach to solving a problem. If you need any support on your earthworks projects then feel free to call our Dr Andy Goodwin to discuss how we could assist and add value.
