|A variety of specialist engineering skills are essential for the re-development of under-used commercial and industrial land. Investigations include:
Contamination: Investigations are typically required to establish the former uses of a site. A variety of tests may be undertaken to determine whether or not
contamination has occurred.
Geotechnical: Investigations focus on founding conditions and the effects of previous development which includes the placement of fill material and its impact on re-development proposals.
|Civil: Investigations look at service capacity constraints including water supply; fire fighting; wastewater; and stormwater. Stormwater detention, as well as treatment devices, are typically required to be integrated within any new development proposals. Inputs also include service infrastructure; design; civil tender; and contract documentation and contract administration.|
|Brownfield Project Examples|
RILEY provides engineering input for previously unadopted land, from the initial feasibility stage identifying significant engineering impediments to development from both economic and consenting viewpoints. Inputs continue throughout the concept, design, consenting and construction phases of the project and include:
Geotechnical: Tailored to earthwork and future building proposals
Contamination: Focussing on previous farming and land use practices.
Public Infrastructure: Constraints to connection.
|Earthworks: Layout and staging design together with design of practical sediment and erosion control measures.
Stormwater Discharge: Maintaining hydraulic neutrality and meeting water quality requirements through traditional engineered or low impact devices.
Consenting: Including attendance at hearings.
Service and Infrastructure: Layout design.
Tender: Contract documents and contract administration.
Compliance: Including council sign-off.
