"I have worked with a good few companies in my time but yours really does stand out from the crowd. What I thought was going to be a difficult challenge for me because of the time scale we had, your reaction to our situation has been outstanding from the moment I contacted you by e-mail.

Your regular updates gives me the impression that I'm on site with you at all times.

It's been a seamless, stress free experience for me because of your professional expertise, customer focus and commitment to the project.

And it has really been a pleasure dealing with you".

Ron Bone - Property Manager

"DBS were asked to get involved with a large brownfield remediation project, the end use was for a large supermarket. The initial environmental/geotechnical consultant appointed to support site redevelopment were having difficulties discharging the planning conditions imposed on the new development by the Local Planning Authority, and satisfying Environment Agency requirements.

This began to become a serious issue with the planning department with the works being stopped until a number of issues could be resolved.

DBS was asked to take over the role as the main Environmental/Geotechnical consultant after proposing a way forward to resolve all of the regulator issues and concerns which were threatening the project.

Time was a major factor as the works were well on the way. After reviewing all of the project documentation and planning support documents, DBS had a full appreciation of what needed to be done for the works not to stop.

Meetings with the client, Environment Agency and Local Planning Authority were set up within a couple of days of DBS taking on the role, to listen to their concerns and to agree a way forward. A program of works was proposed to discharge each planning condition, which was agreed by all parties. From that initial meeting everything else fell into place, DBS delivered everything they promised on time and to budget satisfying everyone's requirements and we were able to achieve full regulator sign off of the remediation scheme.

I would heartily recommend DBS for any future environmental or geotechnical works".

Ryan Molloy, Environment and Development Manager, Thompsons of Prudhoe

"We deployed DBS to assist with the environmental issues associated with two developments involving the removal and treatment of contaminated land. Their knowledge and expertise was found to be invaluable and enabled a simple cost effective solution to be adopted on both projects.

DBS worked closely with all of the members of the site team including the client, other consultants and regulating authorities and were always readily available to assist and guide us throughout all stages of the works, resulting in the successful discharge of the associated environmental planning conditions.

DBS have a very pro-active approach in the way that they operate and their professionalism is exceptional. We would most certainly not hesitate in recommending DBS and the tremendous services that they provide".

Paul Consterdine, Project Manager, Tolent Construction

"Our last building project was some 30 years ago when things were much simpler than the present day stringent regulations, our brief was to assist us in the issues regarding the conversion of an old industrial Sawmill to a residential building.

DBS were contacted re contamination reports required by the local authorities and from day one they eased us through what was a complicated issue with assurance and their wide knowledge and expertise.

I have absolutely no hesitation but to recommend this company to any future clients.".
