Updated Environmental good practice on site guide to be released...

28 Oct 10 Construction activities can often impact on the areas surrounding the site, including neighbours, and the natural and built environment.

It is often hard to ensure good environmental practice, but by improving the way we use resources will ensure that such impacts are managed positively, helping to improve environmental issues.

The latest edition of Environmental good practice on site (C692) will help clients, their professional advisers, contractors and the whole construction supply chain to be more aware of their responsibilities for appropriate environmental management, ensuring compliance with legal and other requirements.

The new edition is a user-friendly reference and training aid, which provides practical advice for minimising environmental impacts on construction sites, and addresses issues from the point after completion of site investigation.

The guide covers environmental good practice from the planning stage, through to the overall management of the site to ensure environmental good practice, taking into account pre-construction, construction and post-construction activities, as well as identifying particular environmental issues that may become problematic for a particular site.

Chair of the Project Steering Group, Gareth Brown, Sustainability Manager at Bovis Lend Lease, said of the guide “It was a pleasure to be asked to Chair the Project Steering Group for the 3rd edition of the Environmental good practice on site guide. As one of CIRIA’s best selling publications, I believe the guide makes a notable contribution to raising awareness and the standard of environmental management in the construction sector. This 3rd edition is a very welcome response to the ever changing environmental requirements that we are obliged to address.”
