IBEX CE have a broad range of experience with current British codes and guidelines for contaminated land risk assessments regarding the protection of end users, construction workers, the underlying designated aquifers, controlled waters and the environment.
A geo-environmental risk assessment aims to identify and remediate possible contamination (if any) within the underlying soils and groundwater to protect the end users as well as the surrounding environment.
The geochemical tests carried out by a UKAS/MCERTS accredited and independent laboratory within five working days. Our chartered and highly experienced geo-environmental engineer(s) will provide recommendations for further remedial action (if required).
If you require a robust geo-environmental assessment for your proposed construction project, drop us a line in our ‘contact us’ window. We have delivered numerous full-site investigations across the UK.
Qualitative and quantitative risk assessments conforming to regulatory requirements
The geochemical testing results and ground gas rates are assessed by our consulting engineer(s) in accordance with CIRIA C665, BS 8485:2015, BS 8576:2013 and a quantitative risk assessment determines whether remedial measures are required or not.
If/where required, a remediation options appraisal is undertaken at this stage and remediation method statements are prepared.

It is crucial to identify geotechnical hazards to prevent any form of ground-related movements/axial displacements/failure or instability.
A competent geotechnical engineer is required to identify the site-specific geotechnical hazards and their impacts on the existing structures and on the proposed development. on your site. IBEX CE Limited will consult you in relation to the remediation options as well as mitigation measures to prevent and avoid any form of ground-related failure.

- Settlement risks
- Bearing, sliding and rotation failures of the retaining structures
- Heaving issues
- Land slips
- Slope instability
- Other geotechnical hazards
- Groundwater pollution
- Contamination of soil
