Geophysical survey of University of Hertfordshire campus

In 2010, the University of Hertfordshire wished to extend and refurbish Hutton Hall, one of its existing campus buildings. Anecdotal evidence indicated that during the construction of the original building a number of voids were encountered, some of which suffered from collapse and had been backfilled with rubble.

A geophysical survey was required to assess the potential for voids from historical chalk mines beneath the surface of the university campus. RSK undertook a high-resolution microgravity and electrical resistivity imaging survey in the area surrounding the building and within the footprint of the building itself.
