Dounreay D3200 Enabling Project Site Investigation

Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd

RPS were commissioned to characterise the geotechnical and land quality conditions for the Dounreay Shaft and Silo retrieval buildings.

The ground for Dounreay Shaft and Silo retrieval buildings was known to be crossed by drain lines and was suspected of having been contaminated historically by radiological and chemical hazardous material. The geotechnical properties also required definition to facilitate appropriate design of the D3200 building structures.

RPS is expert in the needs of both construction geotechnical investigation and the characterisation of land on radiologicaly and chemically impacted sites. The project was delivered to the required technical standard and within time and budget.
