Specialist Ground Survey

20th September, 2018

Victoria Viaduct, a busy main road in the centre of Carlisle, was closed to vehicles and pedestrians after several tonnes of loose masonry were identified at a former hotel building. The building was deemed a significant hazard and remediation measures to secure the building structure were implemented immediately. As part of the remediation measures there was a requirement for heavy plant to be deployed.

LandScope were commissioned to carry out a specialist ground survey to identify any potential weak spots within the ground due to the presence of tunnels, ducts, buried obstructions and utility infrastructure below the site. LandScope completed a full utility and GPR survey of the building perimeter and surrounding access routes to aid with the deployment plan for the heavy machinery.
