Winter Groundwater Monitoring

Understanding water levels is essential to avoid construction delays or even failures.

Winter Groundwater Monitoring

Water levels can have a significant impact on below ground construction.

Land Science offers innovative ways of monitoring groundwater for construction projects. We install monitoring wells with automatic level loggers and make monthly visits to download data, check instruments, and take manual readings.

Water ingress in deep excavations and basements can pose a major temporary works hazard, causing loss of ground and blowing, a risk of buoyancy. In the finished condition, water ingress into buildings is a major professional risk and remedial works can be very costly.

We support the push towards Sustainable Urban Drainage Schemes (SUDS) to combat the effects of climate change and reduce flood risks in urban areas., and understanding water conditions is key in developing drainage designs. Water will not flow into saturated ground.

Some areas and regions of the UK are susceptible to groundwater flooding, whereby winter water levels can rise significantly. For instance, at the foot of the South Downs along the coastal plain, the water table can rise seasonally by many tens of metres as water migrates through the chalk aquifer.

In addition, we also undertake a variety of specialised investigations relevant to geotechnical and contaminated land assessments.

Contaminated Land Assessements

Land Science can assist with contaminated land assessments as part of a planning application or any other purpose prior or during house building, commercial development or creation of new infrastructure.

Land assessments are often required to assess soil contamination or groundwater pollution issues amongst a host of other potential problems. We assist at all phases of the assessment process with comprehensive desk studies, site investigations, contaminated land remediation and validation and post remediation monitoring.

Geotechnical Support

Land science provides geotechnical investigations which will help you to make informed decisions about the design of pavements, foundations and drainage on your project. Our in-house geotechnical laboratory testing capability enables us to undertake a range of sample analysis in-house.

Where more specialised geotechnical testing is required, we have a range of trusted preferred partners that we call upon on a regular basis.
