Speakers: Rhian Locke, Temple Group, Gary O'Brien, Costain

Event Type: Webinar

Organiser: IEMA

This webinar will present an overview of the approach taken by Crossrail to measuring the environmental performance of its tier 1 contractors during the civil construction phase of the project. It describes how the process of Environmental Performance Assurance was developed and implemented and used alongside other assurance mechanisms such as audits, site inspections and processes for reporting and investigating environmental incidents. This webinar should be of interest to Clients considering developing a means of measuring the environmental performance of their principal contractor(s) on a construction project, and for Principal Contractors in turn to measure the environmental performance of their supply chain.

Detailed information on all of the environmental elements is on the Crossrail Learning Legacy website and a detailed case study is available on this topic.

Noise was one of the main impacts and challenges during the construction of Crossrail. It was recognised that for Crossrail’s Tier 1 contractors to achieve the necessary levels of performance in noise management, focus could not solely be on controlling or minimising noise levels. Factors such as community engagement, effective planning, management processes, leadership and culture were identified as being critical to successful noise management on sites. A detailed suite of objective performance measures were defined in order to measure contractor’s performance in construction noise management with the aim of driving improved performance towards a defined “world class” level.
This webinar will describe the criteria that were used to measure performance and the benefits that have resulted. The key factors that contributed to success and the key challenges faced during the process will also be covered.
The webinar may be of use to Clients considering developing a means of measuring the construction noise management performance of their principal contractor(s) on a construction project, and for Principal Contractors in turn to manage and measure the construction noise performance of their supply chain.
