Pre-Survey of Multiple Brownfield Sites for Social Housing Developments in Fife

The W M Donald team was contracted by Robertson Partnership Homes to pre-survey multiple Brownfield sites earmarked for social housing developments in Fife. We initially used the high pressure water jet before carrying out a CCTV survey of the drainage systems following demolition of the existing buildings. We then carried out ground penetrating radar surveys to identify any utilities left underground before carrying out a site survey and supplying the client with a CAD drawing of the site.

Key elements of this project were:

  • Visually tracing the remains of the drainage system following the demolition
  • Locating the buried manholes with metal detector
  • Excavate and expose manholes prior to High pressure water jetting with Jet vac
  • Remove waste from heavily contaminated sewers
  • CCTV survey the sewers following jetting
  • Plot existing and other buried manholes
  • Carry out GRP survey of the site to identify the drainage system and all other live and redundant utilities
  • Provide a CAD drawing of the site drainage and utilities to assist with the design of the new development of the site
