ABOUT US

Groundsmiths was established in 2009. Since then we have completed over 250 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 bespoke solutions to problems associated with the redevelopment of land that is often affected by mining legacy, geotechnical issues and soil, groundwater and 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, drilling contractors and structural engineers who are local to the area.


The work we do is specialised and we give the ground the respect that it deserves.

COAL & IRONSTONE MINING

An interesting area of work we get involved with is the assessment and investigation of underground and opencast coal and ironstone mine workings. Chesterfield is 'mining country', so there's every chance that your development could be affected by mining legacy if you are building here. We have experience of working on housing and commercial schemes and have been involved with projects from Rotherham to Ilkeston.


New mining-related projects are coming on line all the time. If you require a mining assessment or need assistance with the remediation of mining-related features, give us a call and we can talk you through what's required.
