Simon Talbot

GGS

Founder and Managing Director of Ground-Gas Solutions Ltd. a chartered engineer and engineering geologist by training but an environmental geologist by practice with over twenty years experience focusing on ground-gas contamination, risk assessment and remediation.
Simon, in collaboration with the University of Manchester, worked on the development of continuous ground-gas monitoring in the early 2000’s. This research culminated in the development of the GasClam device in 2009. Since a number of telemetry enabled continuous monitoring devices are available and the technique has now come of age.
Simon is an expert on continuous monitoring techniques, data interpretation and risk assessment and has also written several technical papers and best practice guidance documents on contamination and ground-gas issues. He regularly presents at national and international conferences and specialist training events.

Continuous Ground-gas Monitoring and De-risking Development Sites

While the Gorebridge incident has demonstrated the result of getting a ground-gas risk assessments wrong, traditional spot ground-gas monitoring and generic risk assessments often over estimates the ground-gas risk at development sites.

This presentation will discuss why over conservatism occurs and the cost impacts associated with this and how higher quality continuous monitoring can provide robust ‘lines of evidence’ that can de-risk sites. This will be illustrated through case studies.
