This long-established industrial site is scheduled for redevelopment as housing
Client: Hunston Joinery
Site Investigation Value: £1,000
Project Value: £1m
The preliminary investigation works determined the site use and site history from historical maps and private research including a site visit accompanied by the Client. This was to determine the potential for deleterious materials to have been created by historical work activities undertaken on and around the site. This data was then risk assessed to determine if there was a potential for such materials to be present and to affect or have affected the key receptors of human health, waters, environment and buildings / services.
What Soils brought to the table…
Using our extensive experience in site investigation and research, Soils successfully determined that the potential for deleterious materials to be present was low to negligible. That being said it was recommended that a discovery strategy should be in place during the works in case unknown materials were encountered.
Historical and site sources comprised:
– Landmark Envirocheck Report
– Private on-line research including ancient maps
– Consultation with local Council
– Risk Assessment
– Factual and Interpretive Reporting
Soils was able to prove that risks to and from the site and to the proposed development were low to negligible, thus obviating the need for further intrusive investigation.
The proposal involved converting the Town Hall Annexe building into block of apartments with two storey floor extension creating one, two and three-bed homes, with a total of 185 new homes
A robust intrusive ground investigation, designed to obtain geological, geotechnical and geo-environmental data.
Additional Contamination Investigation Report to define the condition of materials in select areas across the site which is being redeveloped as a new school
A new ‘Southern Link Road’ linking the A130 southbound to a new signalised junction on the A1245.
Upgrading the A47 single carriageway to a dual carriageway standard including access routes and a new bridge
The demolition of the existing derelict Public House (White Hart Inn) and the construction of eight 3-storey houses
The proposed development was to comprise the construction of a block of flats with the superstructure comprising 4 (central and north-eastern portion) and 3 (south-western portion) storeys.
Redevelopment included hard landscaping such as access roads driveways and pavements and soft landscaping such as communal garden and public open space.
The A27 - East of Lewes improvements worked involved the collection of 3500 plus geotechnical and geo-environmental samples from over 150 different locations
The project comprised the construction of six two-storey, semi-detached three-bedroom houses and the construction of a commercial CO-OP building in the northern section of the site.
Soils Limited was commissioned to undertake a ground investigation by the RNLI for a proposed new lifeboat station at RNLI Penlee, The Strand, Newlyn
