Patrick Parsons were commissioned to undertake a Phase 1 and Phase 2 Site Investigation on the former Feethams Football Ground in Darlington.
The site investigation revealed difficult ground conditions, made ground contamination and relic foundations. Patrick Parsons also completed a remediation strategy and materials verification report for the installation of flood defences along the River Skerne.
Most recently, Patrick Parsons geoenvironmental and structural teams have been working together to complete the piling mat design for the scheme and complete waste characterization testing.
Weak soils, shallow water table and pockets across the site required mixed foundation solution. Presence of foundations from former stands required delineating.
The project required close regulator liaison to ensure the best outcome for the client.
