Details

The guide, which is intended to be applicable to all levels of construction experience, provides practical and accessible information on appreciating, avoiding and mitigating the effects of poor environmental practice within the coastal and marine environment once a project has reached the construction stage. As such, it is primarily aimed at: site managers, foremen and site supervisors; site engineers; contract supervisors/resident engineers and project managers, although it will also be of interest to a wider audience such as contractors, designers, planning supervisors, environmental regulators etc.

Overall the guide introduces a number of topics that are relevant to working in a coastal and marine environment whilst also raising awareness of roles and responsibilities, promoting ‘ownership’ by contractors and enhancing the understanding of the need to communicate with relevant agencies.
