The purpose of all site investigation is the identification of the geotechnical and geoenvironmental characteristics of the ground at a site to provide the basis for the design of efficient, economic and safe projects. This Client Guide aims to encourage good practice and high standards in line with current regulatory guidance which will result in technically sound site assessments, minimising risk, meeting regulatory requirements and providing value for money. Ten key points are identified which summarise important elements of good practice in site investigation.
