THE CHALLENGE

IKM has been working alongside the client since 2005, providing geo-environmental and engineering advice and technical assistance to help with their current and proposed redevelopment sites in South East Edinburgh.

THE SOLUTION

The scope of services undertaken to date has included:

  • Stage 1 and 2 development appraisals, including desk studies, intrusive investigations to assess near surface ground conditions, the nature and extent of mine workings, and the location of buried mine entries
  • Infrastructure assessment, which included:
    –  Sourcing, sizing, and allocation of services for the site
    –  Foul drainage plan, including a SUDS system
    –  Options for the treatment of mine-water on site
    –  A waste strategy for the site
  • Production of masterplan documents in association with other specialist consultants. These have included a range of information from site history and ground conditions to the proposed development with utilities and transport link information
  • Ground Source Heating Feasibility Study
  • Drainage Impact Assessment and culvert-opening feasibility study
  • Engineering and Ecological Constraints Assessment
  • Outline Drainage Strategy
  • Noise and Vibration Impact Assessment
  • Digital 3D ground models and mining constraints assessment
  • Geo-Environmental Baseline report
  • Preliminary Ecological Appraisal
  • Bat Survey Report
  • Habitats Regulation Appraisal

The site was successfully sold to developers in 2014, during which time IKM assisted the client in the rationalisation and reduction in abnormal costs.

A PPP application was submitted in 2016 for the site in South East Edinburgh.  IKM played an integral role in the evolution of the masterplan, and in supporting the planning application; work which included numerous technical assessments and reports, as well as the co-ordination and production of the supporting Environmental Statement.  IKM are currently providing ongoing support during PPP determination.
