    Land Restoration and Earthworks

    Land restoration is the process of reestablishing sites to a condition that is suitable for a new purpose, such as residential development. The most common locations for land restoration are former quarries and industrial works.

    Earthworks are required on restoration projects as well as on most civil engineering schemes. The works, especially infilling of quarries, should be undertaken in a controlled, monitored and measured way. It is necessary to develop an earthworks strategy including investigation, design, specification and compliance control.

    Drawing upon our extensive in-house experience of geotechnical and environmental engineering we first understand the scale of land restoration and earthworks required, before designing a ground investigation to explore ground conditions of the ‘source’ material. 

    We adopt a pragmatic approach in developing an earthworks specification. We do this by balancing the end use of the material with acceptability limits.  This process allows our team to maximise material re-use on site and minimise import/export volumes. This in turn leads to financial and carbon savings for the project.

    We are often retained by our Client throughout the construction phase to provide technical governance. This governance verifies that the earthworks have been constructed in accordance with the specification outlined.
