A Phase 2 Site Investigation provides further information regarding the risks posed by development site or surroundings. It can assist in further definition of ground risks and allows you to identify and quantify these risks. It allows for refinement of the Conceptual Site Model (a preliminary of which was produced as part of the Phase 1 Desk Study).
It is very often the second stage of a phased contaminated land investigation which is often required to discharge planning conditions or remove objections, once planning permission has been granted.
Phase 2 Ground or Site Investigations require intrusive investigations and may involve a variety and combination of exploratory techniques.
