GGS is delighted to have been selected to perform continuous ground gas monitoring in Gothenburg, Sweden. Taking place at a prestigious residential development at the former dockside, GGS will deploy continuous monitoring instrumentation, including the GGS Gas Sentinel®, to inform the client of the potential gas pollutant linkages and provide a detailed understanding of the gas regime.
This project forms part of the high profile regeneration of some of Gothenburg’s busy former docking area. With the aim of creating a sustainable and lively district while maintaining its rich industrial history, the new modern residences will accompany workplaces, green areas and event spaces.
Understanding that continuous monitoring is the most reliable and accurate form of ground gas assessment, our client approached GGS due to its longstanding reputation as leader in the field. We will provide a detailed and robust assessment of the ground gas conditions, including flow monitoring, to update the conceptual site model and increase confidence levels that the ground gas regime is thoroughly understood.
Andrew Brunton, Principal Geo-Environmental Consultant and project lead said, “We’re delighted to be supporting our client with such an exciting and anticipated development. It’s a great step forward for the international acceptance of continuous monitoring as the most precise and reliable technique for ground gas risk assessment. GGS’ involvement in the project is both a compliment and testament to our experience and commitment to best practice.”
Look out for further information on this project coming soon.
