Soil Investigation Report
When planning to build in the city, there are elements to consider long before construction begins. The city of New York has seen buildings come and go and little virgin soil remains on Long Island. Most properties in and around New York City have held multiple buildings since the city’s founding. The land left behind after demolition can hold many different types of dangerous chemicals and pollutants from previous building materials and manufacturing byproducts. Disturbed soil can unearth contaminants long buried that can affect the safety of the construction site and the areas around it. Workers on-site and people that come in contact with a contaminated construction area can suffer severe health problems caused by the contaminants. Testing and conducting a soil investigation report for structural and health purposes is a crucial first step to the building process, but often these essential tests are overlooked. If construction begins before a thorough subsurface investigation is performed, a company can see itself incurring sudden construction site costs in the millions and losing months of time on the progress of a project.
Importance of a Soil Investigation Report for your Business
Airtek Environmental is the best equipped to help companies in New York avoid these costs by providing an in-depth soil investigation report that outlines the content of the soil and groundwater.
