Content

This 336 page book is intended to be a user-friendly reference and training aid. This is the 3rd edition and has been updated to provide practical advice about managing construction on site to minimise environmental effects, and is relevant to all concerned within the construction process. It is accompanied by a CD containing supporting guidance documents.

Construction activities have the potential to affect the surrounding environment including neighbours as well as the wider environment. Good environmental practice enables these effects to be managed positively. They can take many forms, for example effects on surrounding flora and fauna, watercourses, noise or pollution. Clients, their professional advisers, contractors and the whole construction supply chain have responsibilities for environmental management.

This updated guide provides practical advice about managing construction on site to minimise environmental effects, and is relevant to all concerned within the construction process. It is accompanied by a CD containing supporting guidance documents.
