Soakaway Under the Summer Sun

Surface water drainage systems are an important component for developers to consider, and we have been busy this summer undertaking soakaway testing at sites around the country including:

  • A college and a residential site in the South East.
  • Residential sites in the Midlands.
  • A hospital site in the North West.

Summer is also the perfect time to be undertaking desiccation testing as it shows the worst-case scenario (assuming we have not had an overly wet year). Our team of specialist structural, foundation and geotechnical engineers will be working on several desiccation investigations over the coming weeks to help clients with their foundation designs. Our work and results will hopefully reduce the amount of concrete used in the ground, which not only reduces client costs, but also has a smaller impact on the environment.

If you have any development or construction projects, then please get in touch to find out how we can help and hopefully save both time and costs. Please get in touch either through your main point of contact or for new enquiries via or 01283 551249. Alternatively, a full email contact list is on our website
