Metech Consulting were recently engaged by a residential property owner in Bundeena, NSW who was looking to modify their existing beachfront dwelling. Metech Consulting undertook an acid sulfate soils assessment to support their development application.
The assessment began with a desktop review, from which a sampling program was designed and implemented based on the proposed development. The assessment determined that acid sulfate soils were present at the property, but were located outside of the development area. Therefore, Metech Consulting concluded that acid sulfate soils at the property did not require further assessment or management to facilitate the proposed development.
Metech Consulting is a Sutherland Shire-based business with extensive knowledge of the local environment and experience preparing acid sulfate soil assessment and management reports for submission to Sutherland Shire Council. This knowledge and experience allows us to design our assessments to the specific requirements of the subject site and Council expectations.
