Groundsmiths was established in 2009 to service Chesterfield and the surrounding areas. Since then we have completed over 400 projects and have developed close working relationships with a client base of self-builders and developers who are involved with the regeneration of brownfield and greenfield sites for commercial, industrial and residential end use.
Our work is centred on providing cost effective and bespoke solutions to problems associated with the redevelopment of land that is often affected by mining legacy, geotechnical issues as well as soil, groundwater and ground gas contamination. We encompass all aspects of site characterisation and work closely with a select group of fellow professionals including independent planning consultants, civils and drainage engineers, architects, plant hire and drilling contractors, and structural engineers who are local to the area.
WHAT WE DO...
Phase 1 (Desk Study) geotechnical and geo-environmental site characterisation;
Phase 2 geotechnical, mining and contaminated land investigation;
Phase 3 remediation method statements, validation sampling and verification reporting;
