Geo-environmental Engineering is a combination of skills that draw on Engineering Geology, Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Hydrogeology, Flood Risk and Hydrology to manage ground related and environmental risks associated with the management and development of land. In order to make development sustainable and affordable these skills should be deployed early in the development cycle so that commercial, reputational and programme risks can be addressed.
The ESI team have worked in partnership with public and private sector clients including developers, house builders, extractive industries, government agencies and local authorities to help them manage complex geo-environmental problems.In order to assess your project needs ESI will appoint a geo-environmental specialist as your Project Manager who will coordinate ESI’s services provide effective technical support for your team.
ESI’s specialists have worked in numerous multi-disciplinary design teams and are expert in communicating clearly and effectively to make sure risks are fully understood and appropriately provisioned.ESI’s experience of providing services to the environmental regulators (including the Environment Agency and Local Authority Contaminated Land Officers) gives a unique and powerful insight into their expectations which can help guide your development process and minimise the risk of protracted negotiations and planning delays.
Your project will also benefit from ESI’s programme of continuous innovation and the many software products that we have brought to market which help in the management of geo-environmental data and risk assessment.
