Construction Site Layout and Housekeeping


The construction EMP will include a site layout showing the location of site compounds and main features of the site. Further site investigations will be required for the project. Prior to any intrusive investigation or construction work, all existing service plans would be consulted and a comprehensive service line location survey carried out in order to ensure that existing services are not disrupted. This would include radio detection, ground penetration radar and vacuum excavation where necessary.
