Phase II - Contamination Investigations

Contaminative investigations can take many forms from simple sample collection to detailed intrusive investigations.  Contamination Investigations are often completed for development sites which require compliance with planning conditions relating to contaminated land issues.  For potential site acquisition/investment, the Phase II investigation provides a degree of assurance about potential soil and groundwater contamination issues to allow detailed risk and liability assessment to be undertaken.

We have experience of many types of former industrial sites including tanneries, petrol filling stations, breweries, vehicle repair garages, plating works and engineering workshops.


We can provide the following services:


  • Site investigation strategies
  • Attendance on site to complete intrusive investigations
  • In situ soil sampling
  • Groundwater / surface water sampling.
  • Scheduling laboratory testing
  • Tier 1 & Tier 2 Human Health Risk Assessment Reports.
  • Controlled water Risk Assessment
  • Preparation of factual and interpretative reports
  • Validation testing and preparation of Validation reports for final part contaminated land planning condition discharge.
  • Liason with Environment Agency and Local Authority Contaminated Land Officers
