Hi, I am about to start a new project that involves building a new house (in place of an existing building). The existing house was built 60 years ago and I have been instructed to get a soil test (report) for foundation purposes.
I have been quoted £2,000 (£2,400 inc VAT) for five X 5 meter soil samples. Is this price reasonable or excessive for 3,500ft sq new build? Is this process absolutely necessary?
Thanks in advance.
