We provide a range of specialist surveying and geophysical techniques for environmental monitoring and investigation depending on the purpose of a project and the depth required for the investigation.
We use terrestrial 3D laser scanning and airborne LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) for the detection and investigation of landslides and rockfall displacements. Both techniques enable remote survey acquisition, providing high-resolution scans and eliminating the risk of injury to workers. The resulting data can be used to quantify the volume of displaced materials and identify any further deposits that could be at risk of displacement. A series of surveys can also be commissioned for monitoring, enabling the detection of precursory displacements before a larger collapse might occur.
Both techniques can be used to analyse and track the deposition of debris flow caused by heavy flooding along river channels, with findings determining the quantities of material to remove to prevent further catastrophic damming and ensure flow. We use also geophysical techniques to detect buried environmental hazards including leachate plumes, sinkholes and alluvial channels, as well as geological features such as bedrock and water table levels.
With offices in London, Newcastle, Nottingham and Edinburgh, we are able to provide environmental monitoring to the whole UK. No matter what sector you’re in, small business or large PLC, our trained specialists are here to help, working only to the very highest standards.
