Environmental Consulting Review
DPL Steel Buildings, a leading groundworks and steel building construction company based in the East Midlands, contacted us regarding our environmental consulting services to carry out soil analysis and testing on one of their sites in Nottingham. Following initial discussions, our environmental consultants visited the site to take some soil samples to be analysed at the laboratory and to survey the site for an in-depth site investigation report. Our analysis showed that the soil on site was non-hazardous and DPL were able to carry out their project within days of first contact.
The guys at Oakshire are really friendly and helpful. They always deliver a professional and speedy service for us. We use them for all our waste classification testing, reporting and environmental consulting for our groundwork division at DPL. A great company to work with.
DPL Steel Buildings are now a construction partner of ours, after successfully working together for some time now, and kindly posted the above review on our social media.
Our Environmental Services
Geoenvironmental - Our geoenvironmental analysis services cover anything from contaminated land assessments to topsoil, waste classification and WAC testing and are all carried out in a UKAS accredited laboratory. These environmental services are most often used to determine whether a soil sample is hazardous, non-hazardous or to ascertain pH and other chemical properties. We aim to be as flexible as possible so our geoenvironmental consulting services are completely tailored to our clients’ requirements, however, the basic process would include Phase 1 Desk Studies to develop an assessment of the potential risks at a site and this may lead to us visiting site to take samples for laboratory analysis, if necessary, to complete a detailed contaminated land report.
Geotechnical - This branch of our environmental consulting service encompasses testing, reporting and project specific consultancy regarding ground composition, subsurface conditions and potential risks. These environmental services are most often used to complete flood risk assessments, intrusive ground investigations and structural calculations. Following initial consultation we can provide an outline proposal detailing how we can help, the costs involved and what format the service takes.
Consultancy - Our project specific environmental consultancy is our most wide ranging service and can include anything from planning consultancy and environmental impact assessments to waste management and tailored environmental consultancy. If your requirements are more complex, a more formal consultation may be necessary but we would usually aim to quickly provide a no obligation outline proposal, detailing how we can help and the costs involved.
