Mining Risk Assessments

Historical mining has left a significant legacy across large areas of the UK and can impact new development, current properties and can restrict land use.

Our Mining Risk Assessments will determine the risk of historical mining below your development including surface shafts, adits and features. This allows for mitigation (where necessary) to be undertaken and is a common planning requirement on the coalfield.

Where the Mining Risk Assessment identifies instability or mine gas risks, FWS has the expertise to undertake the necessary investigation programmes, remediation design, specification and contract management to deliver the development on time and to budget.
