Site Investigation

site investigation boreholeThe development of “brownfield” sites  has become a popular way to try and meet the demand for housing, commercial property and community spaces over the past decade.  Brownfield sites may have been used previously for industrial or commercial purposes and become contaminated with a variety of organic and inorganic chemicals and gases.

Site investigation is frequently required on brownfield sites to determine if there is any contamination of soil, surface water, groundwater or soil (ground) gas. Intrusive site investigation may entail the use of trial pits and boreholes to allow sampling and monitoring of soil gases.

Gas Data’s GFM436 portable gas analyser is an ideal choice for soil gas analysis in site investigations.  It offers measurement capability of the primary gases present in brownfield sites – CH4, CO2, O2, H2S and CO – as well as Hexane detection to alert users to the presence of other hydrocarbons (split fuels, oils or other contaminants).
