Environmental Site Investigation

Ground conditions are the most significant hazard to rail infrastructure. The environmental conditions create the potential for extensive time delays and soaring costs from new construction, track expansion, platform expansion, modernisation, embankment cutting, and maintenance projects.

RWB Group conducts environmental site investigations for projects of all scales, from light rail networks through to high-speed national commuter and inter-urban rail networks. We have a clear focus on ensuring geotechnical and geo-environmental risks are reduced. We achieve this goal by identifying problems before they become costly in a highly regulated industry where safety is always the top priority.

Our Environmental Investigation Services

  • Preliminary risk assessments – Our initial assessment develops a conceptual ground model reviewing historical activities such as previous land use, coal mining, pollution incidents, groundwater drainage and designations, land stability, and pollution incidents.
  • Geospatial topographical investigations – We conduct these surveys using 3D laser scanners, measuring human-built and natural structures.
  • Ecological investigations – These investigations can include route surveys ahead of pre-work clearance.
  • Long-term monitoring – Our specialist monitoring teams deploy various instruments to monitor groundwater, ground gases, earth and substrate settlement, and movement in slopes.

Ground And Structural Investigations

We also conduct ground investigations. These physical investigations include deep and shallow drilling of exploratory boreholes. Our service encompasses a wide range of sub-surface techniques, including cable percussive, tracked windowless, and rotary borehole drilling. Our technicians are also experts in dynamic probing, lightweight window sampling, trial pitting, sample testing, and CCTV drainage surveys.

We produce intricate, high-quality, and detailed reports based on our structural investigations. Our reports highlight the groundwater, rock, and soil parameters that impact ground conditions of sites earmarked for development, identifying risks and providing advice on how to avoid them.
