Soil Testing

Much of Sussex is in an area of clay soil which can shrink when it is dry (causing settlement) and expand (causing heave) when it is wet. Hence it may be necessary to excavate to expose the soil at proposed foundation level and to have it tested for suitability.

  • If required, we can arrange for the excavation to be carried out and for a sample of soil to be sent to a local laboratory for testing

"I wish we had been introduced to Jadranka earlier in the project. Having had a poor experience with a previous planning and design consultant, she was exactly what we were looking for in a design partner.

Her enthusiasm and ownership of the project is impressive, happily going beyond her remit to fill in the gaps left by other professionals to ensure the appropriate result is achieved. Her ability to visualise the end result allows Jadranka to look at aspects of the design from different angles, adding real value with new ideas and suggestions, but at the same time not afraid to voice an opinion if concerned by client choices.

With Jadranka’s help, we have achieved a brilliant result with our building project.

As a bonus, Jadranka is very personable with a great sense of humour, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again or recommend her to others about to embark on a building project"
