If you are scoping development options across large geographical areas and require an assessment of the potential UXO hazard, our constraints studies are the perfect starting point.


For instance, you may be building a new gas pipeline or grid connection cable and want to select a route that avoids potential hazards such as UXO. Or it may be the case that you are scoping options for future residential developments across whole counties and want to know which areas are best to avoid. No matter how preliminary your plans are, we can help address the UXO hazard at an early stage and prevent any nasty surprises in the future.


Employing our usual tenacity for historical research, we produce detailed maps in GIS or AutoCAD (see below) showing high-level UXO hazard constraints across wide areas. These maps can be overlaid onto your plans of other potential constraints, allowing an optimal route or development area to be selected. Where additional detail on the potential UXO hazards in the area is required, we provide detailed accompanying desk study reports with further information.



Once you have used your constraints studies to decide on a preferred development area, we can undertake a more formal detailed UXO risk assessment to address any remaining hazards and determine if further risk mitigation is required on site. Where this is the case, our multi-sensor geophysical surveys are invaluable in mapping both UXO and a wide variety of other features such as archaeology, buried utilities, changing ground conditions, waste disposal areas and much more.
