Construction Environmental Management Plans (CEMP)

DISS can provide services for development and/or review/endorsement of CEMP. A CEMP defines the activities to be carried out within the boundaries of the construction site as well as temporary facilities/laydown areas during the initial stages that have the potential to have an environmental impact. An environmental impact is any activity that has a potential adverse or positive effect on the environment. A CEMP is a working document subject to ongoing review, and possible revision by the Contractor, during the lifetime of the project.

The CEMP will be developed to address the following environmental aspects, as applicable:

  • Air Quality and Dust Control;
  • Soil & Earthwork Control
  • Groundwater Protection
  • Noise and Vibration Control;
  • Waste Management (Hazardous and Non-Hazardous)
