What is a Preliminary Site Investigation?

A PSI serves as the initial step in assessing the environmental quality of a site. It is a crucial phase for identifying potential contamination risks that could impact the feasibility, safety, and compliance of your development projects. This investigation primarily involves a detailed desktop study and site inspection to gather historical and current data about the site’s environmental condition​​​​.

Our Comprehensive PSI Process

Desktop Study: We begin with a thorough review of existing information, including historical land use records, environmental, safety, and management system records, acid sulfate soil maps, and more, to paint a comprehensive picture of your site’s past and present condition​​.

Site Inspection: Following the desktop study, our expert team conducts a physical inspection of the site to observe current conditions, gather additional data, and verify the desktop study findings. This dual approach ensures no stone is left unturned in assessing potential environmental risks​​.

Risk Assessment: Leveraging the information gathered, we develop a conceptual site model to identify potential sources of contamination, pathways, and receptors. This model guides our risk assessment process, ensuring all potential environmental impacts are considered​​.

Clear, Actionable Reporting: Our PSI reports are comprehensive, clear, and designed to inform decision-making. We provide unequivocal statements on the site’s contamination status and outline recommendations for further actions, whether it be proceeding with confidence, undertaking remediation, or conducting further detailed investigations​​.
