Geo Engineering

Within our Geo-engineering team, we link together specialist pre-construction knowledge, advice and delivery together with innovative solutions for testing ground conditions. The services are available either individually or as part of the overall package Specifications.

Site Investigations and Reporting
We carry out intensive site investigations and soil testing. We will provide detailed reports with solutions that will enable cost effective delivery of projects.

Structural and Drainage Design
Our in-house team can provide full technical design for foundations, retaining structures, drainage, roads and the like. We can provide this early in the development process, to assist planning applications or to deal with planning pre-commencement conditions. We carry £10 million PI insurance to protect our clients.

Contamination and Remediation
We have many decades of experience in dealing with brownfield sites. We can both identify what contamination exists on a project together with the most cost effective and environmentally beneficial solution for the scheme. We can also implement any remediation with our own equipment and operatives.

3D Earthworks Modelling
With the high cost of the offsite disposal of surplus soil especially those with contamination in them, accurate ground modelling can reduce development costs. With our civil engineering knowledge, we can feed in allowance for drainage, services and foundation arising which we can often under estimate and can lead to budget overruns later in a project.

Site Clearance and Demolition
We can undertake demolition removal of hardstandings and foundations as a single package. We carry our own heavy plant to facilitate speedy delivery.

Soil Stabilisation
We have an in-house soil stabilisation team who can undertake ground stabilisation with lime or cement. This enables greater retention of on-site material without lessening performance.

Japanese Knotweed
We have extensive experience of dealing with Japanese knotweed and can call upon specialist knowledge to find a solution for any scheme.

Drainage Camera Surveys
We have two permanent CCTV teams that can investigate and report on both pre-existing and newly installed drainage.

Licensing/Traffic Management/Permits
Our technical team are well versed in dealing with local authorities and statutory bodies, where permits are required for drainage connections, lane closures, service diversions, building control and planning condition sign off.

For all of the services offered by Geo-environmental you benefit from the backing and accrued knowledge of the whole Natta Group. We are happy to spend the time with clients in the pre-construction phase to allow a faster delivery once the scheme starts. By using a single source for pre- and post-construction, many advantages in information transfer, value engineering and joined thinking are produced which save both time and money.
