Peter Baxter Associates carry out Phase 1 Desk Study and Phase 2 Environmental Investigations for sites with an expected low to moderate risk. Reports are prepared in accordance with Environment Agency guidance document CLR11. Such investigations are now frequently mandated by planners for brownfield sites and/or for change of use, regardless of project size or environmental risk. We specialise in smaller developments, provide prompt and proportionate advice, and do not specify unnecessary tests and investigations.
Testing is conducted in house or by established local subcontractors. See our Laboratory page for more details. Our intrusive investigations are designed to minimise cost and disruption and can usually be combined with a geotechnical site investigation to further reduce costs. Should ongoing monitoring be required, it will be conducted by our in-house staff, giving the small to medium developer the same integrated service package offered by larger consultants.
Peter Baxter Associates also offer waste management related advice on compiling Site Condition Reports and Closure Reports
