cranes and construction
  • Ensures your project protects the environment
  • Avoids, minimises or mitigates effects on the surrounding area
  • Guidance on a wide range of services
  • An individual approach that suits your project
  • Review your plan at regular intervals

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.  

The plan often details the implementation of measures in accordance with environmental commitments outlined in an environmental statement or policy, and can be updated at regular intervals throughout the project’s life cycle. A CEMP is often requested as part of a planning application, and may need to be altered following a decision that is subject to particular conditions or derivatives. 

Your expert EMS consultant will ensure that your Construction Environmental Management Plan will: 

  • Identify business and stakeholder requirements. 
  • Ensure that the development is compliant with current environmental legislation. 
  • Outline requirements in accordance with you Environmental Management System. 
  • Detail any mitigation recommendations. 
  • Provide methods to minimise any adverse effects to the environment during construction. 

Your EMS consultant will review the following subject areas, as applicable to your individual project: 

  • Air quality 
  • Water quality and drainage 
  • Noise and vibration 
  • Geology and soils 
  • Landscape and visual impact 
  • Nature conversation 
  • Archaeology and cultural heritage
