YourEnvironment are carrying out BRE365 Soaraway testing for a long standing client in Chichester today. We’ve carried out many BRE tests on this site as the geology was diverse and complex.
Many developers neglect to carry out soaraway testing in areas of variable geology and can end up getting stuck with soak ways that don’t function.
YourEnvironment carry out hundreds of these every year using our professional engineers and equipment. The test involves filling a large pit (2m long x 2m deep) with water on 3 occasions and measuring the infiltration rate. Sometimes, this can take several days and therefore allowance is made for provision of fencing and overnight security if necessary.
