Services for Developers

GWP offers a range of expertise which are often called upon when Clients are wanting to re-develop old quarries, mineral sites or other large scale previously worked areas.  GWP can support Clients with a wide range of services from topographic surveying, site investigation, groundwater monitoring and flood risk assessment through to the design and Construction Quality Assurance (CQA) supervision of the earthworks required for the re-development, utilising our geotechnical, hydrological, hydrogeological and design expertise.

GWP are also frequently called upon to co-ordinate and undertake long term environmental monitoring schemes for these sites, analysing and reporting on gas levels, groundwater levels and quality, surface water flow and quality and ground vibration and co-ordinating noise monitoring programmes.

In addition to the provision of these technical services, GWP can support Clients at a strategic and corporate level in determining the scope and options for site redevelopment and GWP ’s survey department and drawing office are often involved in preparing high quality surveys, drawings and presentation material, such as 3D fly-through images of the proposed works, for submission to planning authorities or for public review.

By the nature of large scale projects a multi-disciplinary approach is normally required and GWP is very experienced and able to lead or work within a team to support the development scheme.

Although not the focus of much of GWP’s normal workload, we are also frequently called upon to apply various aspects of our expertise to smaller scale residential construction and development projects.
