Landfill Geotechnical Design Specialist

Landfill can be an area of land that is used to dispose of waste materials, either on top of the ground or by filling an unwanted hole in the ground. The materials that are sent to landfill have changed over the years and strict legislation governs what can and cannot be sent to landfill. What is crucial to any landfill site is that a Landfill Geotechnical Design Specialist oversees the design, filling and future of any site.

Landfill Geotechnical Design Specialist

Landfill usually contains both household and commercial rubbish, household being mainly food, cardboard paper and wood…organic materials and commercial waste such as bricks, rubble and soil…inert waste. The way this rubbish reacts and affects the surrounding areas requires the services of a Landfill Geotechnical Design Specialist to ensure that relevant legislation is maintained.

Landfill Geotechnical Design Specialist

Organic waste can produce by-products such as gas and leachate, an acidic liquid produced by decaying rubbish. Gas and leachate need to be managed correctly to ensure that the toxic gas and leachate does not contaminate the adjoining ground or streams and water-table. A Landfill Geotechnical Design Specialist will ensure that the design of the landfill site manages the leachate and gas in accordance with current legislation.

The overall construction and management of a landfill site will ensure that the construction and filling is a safe process and provides long-term stability of the site area. This will ensure that any settlement in the ground is managed safely and the overall design prevents land movement or landslip. A Landfill Geotechnical Design Specialist will design a landfill site considering a wide range of factors, from the composition of the current site, to the settlement of the future contents, from the design of the liner to the removal of the leachate.

Highways Geotechnical Design Specialist

Designing, creating and repairing the highways networks is crucial to the efficiency and performance of our roads. Our roads face a wide variety of structures, land conditions and environments and we expect our road network to cope with whatever stands in its way. From local roads, A-roads, dual-carriageways and motorways, the demand on the road network is increasing all the time.

It is essential that our roads are constructed and maintained to the highest standard to avoid costly repair and surface delays. A Highways geotechnical design specialist can help to ensure that the ground your roads run over run through are fit-for-purpose and will not be the reason for these unwanted and unforeseen costly delays.
