Patrick Parsons provided geoenvironmental services to determine the potential for re-development of the 26 acre former colliery site, for residential end use.

During Phase 1, geoenvironmental desk study and walkover survey was undertaken to identify engineering cost key abnormal issues that were likely to have impact on the change of site use.

Preliminary Phase 2 ground investigation was undertaken to identify areas of contamination, suspected secondary mine shafts and to determine ground conditions for foundation design.

Pockets of free-phase hydrocarbon, heavy metals, sulphates and surface asbestos cement debris were found with variable thickness of made ground.
