In late 2017 we had the pleasure of working with a new client on the assessment of the likely settlement beneath the roads, drives and driveways at a proposed housing development site in Yorkshire.  The ground comprised soft alluvial clays and peats, and some land-raising was required.  Movements were estimated based on available information supported by published data and correlations.  Due to the magnitude of movements, a range of treatment options were suggested and the design of the development is presently being advanced.

If you think we could assist you with similar issues you may be having on a site then please contact Dr Andy Goodwin on 01246 807808.



We have recently been commissioned to assess the earthworks for an adoptable access road to a housing development in Peterborough.  A high embankment is required and we are to assess the slope stability issues, collaborate with the Client to aid formation of the earthworks strategy, and to then prepare an earthworks specification with associated drawings. The work is being undertaken as a sub-Consultant to one of our regular partners.
