UXO risk assessment
During WWII the site Igne was asked to recently survey was a diverse urban area, occupied by a variety of different types of buildings and structures (of both commercial and residential use), as well as differing sections of open ground (gardens, recreational space, brownfield).
Furthermore, parts of the site needing a UXO survey sustained different degrees of bomb damage and the post-war developmental history was also complex.
The need for a detailed unexploded ordnance risk assessment
Ahead of demolition and redevelopment work, Igne was brought in to conduct detailed unexploded ordnance risk assessment.
Bringing all the above factors together to plot the different UXO risk zones within a large area presented a challenge.
However, even though the site occupied an area of very high WWII German bombing density, Igne's expert research team correctly justified approximately 70% of the site as at low risk from UXO.
This saved the client valuable time and money - they may be able to do the same for you. The risk of UXO on your site may be low ... but until you have a risk assessment you won't know. Keep your site staff safe and your project on time and budget by proactively considering your UXO risk mitigation strategy.
