Construction & Civil Engineering
The Construction and Civil Engineering industries are continually under pressure to deliver more and more complex projects within tight timescales whilst keeping to clearly defined budgets. ESI understands the pressures placed on their clients and has the experience and track record to providespecialistconsultancyservices which might include:
- Land contamination investigation reports
- Contaminated land remediation design
- Environmental impact assessments for engineering and dewatering projects
- Groundwater modelling in support of large civil engineering projects
- Ground Source Energy installations
- Environmental data management
- Flood risk assessment and SUDs design
As a specialist consultancy, ESI has considerable experience of working as part of broader multi-disciplinary team to deliver high quality products to the client on time and to budget. A large team of over 40 groundwater scientists ensures that ESI can react promptly to sudden demands for high quality solutions. Developing groundwater models to accurately predict the effects of dewatering projects on groundwater levels, flows and quality is regularly provided by the ESI team.
Over recent years, ESI has provided technical support to the teams planning and developing some of the most significant civil engineering and dewatering projects in the UK. This includes the CTRL, the proposed Stonehenge Tunnel, Thames Water’s proposed Upper Thames Reservoir as well as a number of other major road and tunnel projects.
Groundwater Services for Tunnelling, Civil Engineering and Dewatering Projects
Groundwater issues are often a major area of concern for engineers and project managers on infrastructure projects, particularly road and tunnel developments. The difficulties are caused through the combination of the inherent uncertainty in ground conditions, the cost and time required for effective investigation, and the complex and often slow regulatory regime. When such issues arise, they need prompt and efficient action.
ESI’s experience in groundwater risk assessment and groundwater modelling, coupled with an excellent understanding of environmental legislation and a working relationship with the regulators ensure that effective support can be provided. ESI has one of the largest teams of groundwater scientists in the UK ensuring a prompt response to a sudden demand for high quality solutions.
Over recent years, ESI has provided technical support to the teams planning and developing some of the most significant civil engineering and dewatering projects in the UK.
