Desk Studies

A Desk Study forms an integral part of a geo-environmental appraisal and is the basis for developing preliminary conceptual models from which further investigation, analysis and assessment are derived and executed.

Desk Studies include a review of available data held by statutory authorities, inspection of ordnance survey and geological maps and where available, previous site investigation data. Additionally site reconnaissance or “walkover surveys” can be performed to identify current uses of the site which may impact on the project.

Discovery CE Limited are experts at site conceptualisation. The development of the conceptual model is a crucial aspect of any geo- environmental project. The model itself will be constantly updated and refined in the light of emerging data.
