This leaflet describes the general principles and practice of quality assurance schemes applied to the construction industry. It outlines the benefits of QA, gives suggestions for further reading, and accompanies the CIRIA video.
All construction projects contain risks - these may be commercial risks (partners going bankrupt, payments not coming through on time), safety risks (to workers on site or the general public), environmental risks (pollution of nearby streams or lakes) or procedural risks (planning permission not being granted when expected, noise complaints from neighbours) and so on. Each risk could have an impact on the project, or your business as a whole and only a few of them will be directly attributable to things you have or have not done. You can ignore them, but they won't go away
This text sets out a basis for the environmental assessment of development schemes, describing the stages involved in identifying and evaluating the potential impacts of projects, together with appropriate mitigation measures or enhancement opportunities.
This pocket book (sold in packs of 20) provide site operatives and managers with concise, practical advice about some of the more significant wildlife species that may be found on construction sites in the United Kingdom.
