The economic potential of a site is essentially dependent on the condition of the subsoil. WESSLING ensures clarity in the topic of site development, from the exploration of construction ground, contaminated sites to advice on land recycling.
The term site is understood and defined differently by every person: the farmer means his cultivated area, a company its production and operating area, the forester his forest, the mayor the residential and industrial area available to the citizens and entrepreneurs of his town, families their living space and children their play areas. What they all have in common is that they are not available in unlimited quantities.

The sufficient load-bearing capability of ground and soil is the prerequisite for the technically flawless execution of earthworks and civil engineering works and for the sustainably perfect use of the construction. It is therefore necessary to check the technical properties of the construction ground prior to construction activities.
To achieve this, WESSLING carries out geotechnical field investigations to determine the soil stratification and its bulk density. The
derived from this are used to provide a foundation recommendation coordinated to the construction measure, taking economic aspects into consideration.
We also undertake construction supervision tasks: we guide your site to construction maturity on the basis of existing expert reports and/or foundation recommendations. WESSLING carries out the corresponding geotechnical investigations to ensure that recommended earthworks and construction ground improvements have been carried out professionally by commissioned construction companies.
The services provided by WESSLING in this context form the basis for further planning, e.g. by structural engineers or architects.

Land is a resource worth protecting, however it is becoming increasingly scarce, and as a result, increasingly expensive. This gives land recycling a new perspective. WESSLING analyses the facts and shows you the opportunities offered by your fallow land.
Land recycling pursues the objective of putting previously fallow sites to new uses. As part of the investigation, we determine the expenditure required for the measures. Use-dependent land recycling reveals opportunities for cost savings in almost all projects. We show these potentials and thereby provide you with planning, cost and schedule security for your project.
We will be happy to support you.

WESSLING has decades of experience in the exploration, evaluation and remediation of contaminated sites. A step-by-step procedure, in which the effort and thus the costs are kept as low as possible, has proven suitable in this case.
In the context of the use and the relevant resources, our engineers and life scientists will identify for you whether soil and groundwater remediation measures as per BBodSchG/Federal Soil Protection and Contaminated Sites Ordinance (BBodSchV) are required. It is entirely possible that there is no need for action for the individual project, a safeguarding concept is sufficient and thus, that no intervention into the soil is necessary under certain circumstances.
Our experts are experienced in innovative remediation methods such as microbiological in-situ remediation, ISCO and Enhanced Natural Attenuation/Natural Attenuation. They are familiar with all damage arising, for example, from PAH, BTEX, VHH, PFT/PFC, PCB, HC, heavy metals, cyanides and chromium. We are independent of the supply interests of the remediation companies in this case.
Creation of expert reports/statements by publicly appointed and sworn experts recognised according to Section 18 BBodSchG
WESSLING supports you in site development with consulting and planning services pertaining to construction ground, contaminated sites, land recycling, soil and groundwater remediation from a single source. We create the basis for the successful implementation of your project through in-depth technical evaluations of the construction ground, old buildings and contaminated sites. We can carry out economic feasibility studies for various usage scenarios even during the early phase of the project.
Our engineers offer extensive experience from major projects across all project phases: from historical research, exploration, design, implementation and approval planning, tendering and contract award to construction management, expert support and supervision as well as documentation. So you receive cost certainty as well as precise scheduling and deadline monitoring.
„At WESSLING, many years of experience in the fields of construction ground, contaminated site investigation and remediation as well as economic know-how intermesh to offer you maximum possible cost and planning security. Feel free to contact us!“
