Retail Park, Coventry

POSTED ON: 09/11/2019

Risk Management Limited were commissioned to undertake a Warehouse Slab Investigation at a Retail Park in Coventry.

Prior to any intrusive work a UXO assessment found the site to be high risk from unexploded ordnance and consequently on-site support from UXO Specialists were employed during the work.

The project consisted of five cores through the concrete slab in 83mm diameter recovering cores of approximately 75mm in diameter. Following coring boreholes were sunk at two locations using a Premier tracked drive-in-sampler rig to ascertain the make-up beneath the slab.

During the borehole works the UXO specialist cleared each metre prior to drilling using a down-hole magnetometer.
