Great Hollands Pavilion – Geo-EnvironmentalBracknell
Ridge provided Bracknell Town Council with a multidiscipline design team for the comprehensive redevelopment of Great Hollands Pavilion in Wokingham.
The Geo-Environmental brief was to undertake a site investigation and assessment to provide geotechnical information for foundation and ground floor construction, and to identify ground contamination issues that may affect the proposed development.
Geo-Environmental works comprised
4 No. 4.00m deep Windowless sampled borehole
4 No. 4.00-6.00m deep Dynamic probe holes
Installation of three monitoring wells
Geotechnical laboratory testing
Chemical laboratory testing
4 x 4.00m
Deep Windowless sampled borehole
4 x 4.00-6.00m
Deep Dynamic probe holes
Conditions encountered during the ground investigation were consistent with those identified in the published literature and comprised both Windlesham Formation and Bagshot Formation bedrocks. Soils of the Windlesham Formation were found only within the windowless sampler boreholes WS1 and WS2.
A Ground Condition Assessment Report was prepared which included recommendations regarding:
Floor Slab design
Investigation and assessment to provide geotechnical information for foundation and ground floor construction
