Groundsmiths (UK) Ltd
Groundsmiths was established in 2009.

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.
