Ashford, Kent

POSTED ON: 25/01/2019

Risk Management Limited were commissioned to undertake a Phase II Site Investigation at a parcel of land in Ashford, Kent for a proposed Extra Care Facility.

The underlying geology of Weald Clay can be difficult to penetrate with standard drive-in-sampler/window sampler techniques and consequently Cable Percussion techniques were employed to achieve the required 15m depth.

In addition to geotechnical testing and Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) tests, a full BRE 365 Soil Infiltration Test was also undertaken to inform drainage design and assess the capability of the underlying ground for potential soakaways.
