Applied Geology

Nuon Renewables Ground Investigation

Applied Geology has recently undertaken a ground investigation for Nuon Renewables for a proposal wind farm at Swinford, Leicestershire. Applied Geology worked closely with the Clients' Engineer URS Scott Wilson and the University of Leicestershire Archaeological Services, together with local landowners and farmers to achieve the works with minimal disruption, on time and on budget. This project follows a number of other wind energy projects carried out across the UK in 2010, with additional works planned for 2011.

Expert Opinions

Our Managing Director, John Cartwright has recently been involved on a project as an Expert Witness. The project involved providing technical opinion on remedial works previously carried out at a former fuel filling station site. As part of the work, forensic analysis of hydrocarbons was carried out by Jones Environmental Forensics to provide evidence on the age of the high levels of residual hydrocarbon impact at the site. Jones Forensics can be contacted at Unfortunately, for legal reasons, we can say no more (we’d have to shoot you).

You can’t have too much education

In recent months Applied Geology has been heavily involved with ground investigation work and detailed assessment of development options for a number of schools, academies and universities. Works have been carried out directly for individual schools, County Councils and Building Contractors across the Midlands and South East. The projects have involved a complex range of investigation types, carefully managed site works and rigorous reinstatement, to ensure minimal disruption to active school environments.
