Experts Engineering The Best Solutions

Mining Investigations and Risk Assessments

Historic mine workings and mine entries continue to be problematic for development in certain areas of the UK. Alan Wood & Partners have in-house experts with a wealth of experience in their particular area of geotechnical engineering. Initially we will carry out a desktop assessment of the available information and quantify risk, which in a number of cases requires no further action as the risk to the development or structure is proved negligible. If necessary we will develop this work further and our experts will design and supervise an intrusive geophysical ground investigation to assess the nature, condition and extent of any workings and entries.

We routinely provide informed advice on the remediation and improvement of ground affected by historic mineral extraction, especially coal.
