    Other Services


    Chelmer established an ‘in-house’ testing Laboratory with the intent to provide a high quality service and turnaround time of test results that is second to none and that compliments the Site Investigation service.


    Offering a comprehensive range of interpretative reporting, the Consultancy has Geotechnical Engineers, Geo-Environmental Consultants, Environmental Geoscientists and Geologists.


    Following numerous requests from our existing client base, the decision was taken to form a Drainage department within Chelmer. This formation proved highly successful and we are now able to provide an extensive array of services.


    Chelmer can offer a wide range of detailed and efficient surveying services including full site topographical, movement monitoring, wall verticality and utility tracing surveys.

    Contamination and Remediation

    Remediation and regeneration of brownfield sites is becoming a key and essential service to enable the redevelopment of sites, especially within the housing sector. Chelmer can provide investigations to assess contaminated sites and can undertake the necessary remediation works to provide an end site suitable for redevelopment.
