Self-Build & Small Construction Works

We can assess ground conditions to help you prepare for your small-scale building project

Self-Build & Small
Construction Works

The economical and safe design of a durable and low-maintenance structure depends upon an appropriate understanding of ground conditions. It is critical to get sound advice regarding site conditions early on, as it can otherwise have significant implications in terms of costs and delays later in a project. We help you to ensure that site conditions do not hold any unpleasant surprises.
Land Science would be delighted to help you assess the ground conditions to help you prepare for your small-scale building project. Please contact us for more information.

Private Individuals
& Local Builders

We routinely work directly for private individuals and local builders in undertaking investigations for new houses, extensions, conversions and other small projects. We provide a range of services, from a basic factual investigation report to a complete site assessment.

Pre-Fabricated Buildings

We work closely with a number of national and international suppliers of pre-fabricated buildings, and we have led the site investigation industry in providing fixed-price investigation contracts for their clients for projects throughout the UK. We are keen to talk to other suppliers to agree similar terms, get in touch to make an enquiry.

Basement Conversions

Basement conversions are an affordable alternative (or addition) to loft conversions and extensions. Use the extra space for that home cinema, gym, or sauna you've always dreamed of. We work with specialists in basement construction, and routinely undertake ground investigations specific to this type of project.
