The purpose of a Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) is to outline how a construction project will avoid, minimise or mitigate effects on the environment and surrounding area.

  • Ensures your project protects the environment
  • Avoids, minimises or mitigates effects on the surrounding area
  • Guidance on a wide range of services

  • Make sure the development is compliant with current environmental legislation. 
  • Outline requirements in accordance with you Environmental Management System.

  • Geology and soils 
  • Landscape and visual impact 
  • Nature conversation
