In addition, the Code for Sustainable Homes makes Construction Site Waste Management mandatory.
A SWMP provides a structure for waste delivery and disposal at all stages of a construction project. Typically it will identify the following:
- Who will be responsible for resource management
- What types of waste will be generated
- How the waste will be managed
- Which contractors will be used
- How the waste generated will be measured.
Encon Associates can prepare and help implement SWMPs for construction projects, whether they are a legal requirements or in compliance with the Code. Any such plans will be prepared in compliance with relevant guidance, in particular the DEFRA document “Non-statutory guidance for site waste management plans” dated April 2008.
We ensure that any SWMP we develop is a practical document that is easily understood. It should become a useful tool for the site works as well as ensuring that sufficient evidence is obtained to demonstrate compliance with legislation and/or the Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM
