Why is construction environmental management required?
Challenges presented by construction and development activities may include: changes in land use, surface water and groundwater impacts, geotechnical and structural issues, dust and noise emissions, sediments and erosion – all highlight the importance of holistic and dynamic environmental management.
How can Landserv help?
Landserv has extensive experience in developing Environmental Management Plans (EMPs) and Project Environmental Management Plans (PEMPs). These plans describe how impacts to the environment arising from the construction works will be managed to ensure that all environmental aspects for the design and construction phase of the project (or works) are addressed. The appropriate management of these issues can eliminate the potential for significant adverse impacts, to project budgets and outcomes, the environment and human health.
The plans are developed within the framework of AS/NZS ISO 14001: Environmental management systems – Requirements and consider any contractual requirements for an Environmental Management System and an Integrated Management System.
