We have secured a new geoenvironmental contract to provide engineering supervision of remedial works for a North East developer around proposals for a new housing development on land at the former Wardley Colliery in Gateshead.

Liaising with the local authority, the Coal Authority and expert structural engineers from within our own structural engineering department, our geotechnical specialists are ensuring that the site, once remediated, is suitable for residential development.

This includes identifying and removing contamination, the location of mine shafts and overseeing the treatment/capping of these shafts to allow viable construction to proceed.

Chris Rudd (pictured), head of geotechnical services, said: “Our integrated services and innovative technologies allow us to unlock insights for the safe, efficient and economical development of former industrial sites such as disused coal mines. Almost every engineering discipline within RWO is involved in this project, including civil & structural engineering, geotechnical and environmental teams.

“It marks another significant step forward in our growth plans, reflecting also our strong involvement in helping North East developers to bring forward their multi-million-pound infrastructure and inward investment projects.
