LDC frequently carries out detailed soils surveys at pre construction stage on development projects. Frequently these are linear routes such as pipelines or cable routes. Hand soil augering gives minimal intrusion – walking access only required. From this soils can be assessed to a depth of 1.2 metres. Soils maps can be produced looking at the different soils types within the development. Additionally detailed recommendations on soils handling in terms of stripping storage and replacement can be prepared in report and plan format.
ALC maps can be prepared using soils survey techniques as outlined above
LDC are frequently called upon to advise on soils stripping and movements in terms of method suitability at various stages of development.
Analysis is carried out using sub-contractors via Accredited Laboratories. Our Soil scientist can provide detail interpretation of the analysis.
