Investigation

Performing. Recording. Evaluating.

During the last 100 years social prosperity has been growing at the expense of the environment, especially soil and groundwater. Contaminants are stored in former production sites, in landfills and in artificially filled sites. These contaminants pollute groundwater, surface water, crops and endanger human health. In the course of construction measures, these contaminants lead to higher costs and need to be disposed of.  Authorities, owners and buyers require reliable surveys.  This is the only way to safely assess potential threats, risks attached to new use and investment restrictions.
