All our Pre Purchase Site Assessment reports are prepared by Engineers who understand the development process and are experienced at identifying potential liability or other possible issues that may affect development at an early stage.
Our reports provide a brief account of ground conditions, possible ground engineering or stability problems which may be encountered and likely foundation through to drainage and pavement design options based on a visual assessment of ground conditions. It is not a fully comprehensive site investigation report and it is anticipated that further site investigation work including geotechnical and chemical laboratory testing will be carried out following purchase.
We offer two levels of report for residential or commercial land or property.
- Preliminary Site Assessment – includes a Phase 1 Desk Study and is based on site observations and limited Site Investigation testing. It does not include any laboratory testing. The report is issued within a few days of site work and therefore is particularly useful as an initial, rapid, low cost check.
- Extended Site Assessment – also includes a Phase 1 Desk Study, limited Site Investigation testing together with the results of limited geotechnical and / or chemical laboratory soil testing. An interim report is issued within a few days of site work, then revised and reissued on receipt of all soil testing results, usually after a further 10 to 15 working days.
