We recently performed a full site-clearance at a local construction site that was about to commence. Not sure about the process? Read on to learn more…
What Site Clearance Entails
Simply put, site clearance is the removal of all substances or machinery that may bring harm to anyone on the construction location or hamper smooth running of building activities. For instance, you may want to demolish an old and unwanted structure to pave way for a modern and more convenient building.
After it has been brought down, you’ll need to clear the site of all the debris and other materials that are the result of the demolition. You can choose to contract the same company for both demolition and site clearance services, which helps to cut down the cost as well as speed up the process for early beginning of the actual construction activities.
Prior to the commencement of the site clearance activities, the hired service should conduct a survey of the site. They should then get a report showing the materials that need to be removed as well as the means of doing it.
Additionally, it should show the work methodology, plans for disposal and recycling of the waste and any potential effects on the environment, endangered species, rare plants and wildlife and how to handle them.
One of the main benefits of contracting experts in site clearing in Pembrokeshire is less or no chances of harming the environment. For example, there may be the need to determine the nature and extent of any contamination brought by the debris and, therefore, the level of caution taken in order to assure residents that the environment is safe.
In addition, the activity may necessitate the closure of some roads while rendering others impassable or even affect the supply of clean water, electricity and proper disposal of waste.
Thus, it is important to provide an estimation of the time that will be taken in clearing the site. Keep in mind that the surrounding community would be happier if the activity was estimated to take a short time.
Adherence to Legal Requirements
Proper planning and involvement of professionals in clearing your site will ensure that you are not caught on the wrong side of the law and regulations set by building and safety authorities.
