Testimonial

Zoe Brooke

Business Development Director, Whitfield & Brown

On a large residential scheme in Skelmersdale for Social Landlord Tawd Valley, 74 Units £12.5 Million Value, we were provided with a low-level site investigation report, produced by the previous site owner, this was analysed by the Shape Team who identified issues with the level of contamination investigation, groundwater testing, and gas monitoring. They reported to us the failings of the previous investigation, provided a methodology for supplementing the investigation, and due to start on-site time constraints liaised with the Local Contaminated Land Officer to accept the current gas monitoring results, so we were not delayed on-site by a further three months of gas testing. I can’t even quantify how much value this has brought to the project.
