Geophysical investigation of brownfield sites – what can you reasonably expect?
About Simon Brightwell
Simon Brightwell has over two decades’ experience of applying engineering geophysics to the investigation of the built and natural environment. Working with Fugro since 2007 he is part of the team responsible for integrated ground investigation and asset integrity surveys. Previously he was a founding director of Aperio Limited and a project manager at GB Geotechnics.
The appropriate use of geophysical methods can significantly reduce the risks associated with development of brownfield sites. The presentation will include a brief overview of techniques, with an assessment of strengths and weaknesses. Case studies will demonstrate how the approach can deliver value in finding buried obstructions, voids, utilities and other features that have a detrimental effect on safety, programme and budget.
