Whitehawk Bus Depot, Brighton

POSTED ON: 08/07/2019

Risk Management Limited were commissioned by Derek Lofty & Associates to provide information on the existing slab and sub-soil conditions at Whitehawk Bus Depot in Brighton.

The investigation consisted of a number of concrete cores through the existing slab to note the overall depth of concrete and presence and size of reinforcement. Unconfined compression tests were subsequently undertaken on the cores retrieved to determine the core strength.

In addition to the slab assessment, three boreholes were sunk through the aforementioned cores to determine the underlying soil conditions and two hand excavated trial pits to assess the existing foundation make-up and depth. Contamination and Asbestos identification were also undertaken.
