On-Site Ecology & Management Plans

Flynn Furney has extensive experience in providing ecological supervision for a range of construction projects, including drainage and sewerage schemes, windfarms, flood relief schemes and more. We can prepare tailored Construction Environmental Management Plans for each project and fulfil the role of Ecological Clerk of Works where required.

Construction Environmental Management Plans

A Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) provides the environmental management framework to be adhered to during the pre-commencement, construction and operational phases of a proposed development. It incorporates the mitigating principles which will ensure that the project is completed in a way that minimises the potential for any environmental impacts to occur. A CEMP will identify the key planning and environmental aspects that must be adhered to and delivered during site construction and operation. It will thus serve as a reference guide for both the contractor and client as the project develops. The CEMP should also set out schedules for monitoring.  

Ecological Clerk of Works

An Ecological Clerk of Works (ECoW) can effectively oversee the management of the risks on construction sites associated with managing biodiversity and can help to ensure a smooth and cost-efficient construction process. Environmental regulation and planning policy impose obligations on developers and contractors to protect and enhance biodiversity through their work on construction sites. Out of these obligations arises the need for an ECoW who can work on site with construction contractors to:

  • Advise on protecting valued biodiversity features on construction sites.
  • Provide practical, site-specific and proportionate assistance on how their clients can achieve compliance with environmental legislation.
  • Avoid unexpected costs, delays to project timetables, or adverse publicity that may have future negative implications
  • Manage ecological operatives engaged in ecological mitigation activities, e.g. translocation of protected species.
