environmental management consultants

Our environmental management consultants specialise in providing proactive compliance solutions, starting early in the project lifecycle.

Our proactive advice often produces considerable programme savings and helps to minimise scheduling delays.

Our experienced environmental management team regularly liaise with planning and environmental regulators, successfully developing client solutions that allow key project performance objectives to be met.

Our services include:

  • Construction Environmental Management Plans (CEMP)
  • Surface Water Management Plans (SWMP)
  • Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS)
  • Waste Management Licences (WML)
  • Waste Management Exemption (WMX)
  • Peat Management Plans (PMP)

Construction Environmental Management Plans (CEMP)

Planning applications for development projects often require demonstration of compliant environmental monitoring and mitigation measures. These measures must also be implemented during the construction phase of a development in order to minimise adverse effects on the environment.

Best practice is to prepare a CEMP framework prior to an application reaching the planning committee. The framework sets out the environmental principles, mitigation, monitoring and detailed measures the principal contractor will carry out during construction.

A CEMP will typically include the following information:

  • Summary of legal requirements & guidelines
  • Baseline conditions
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Training
  • Stakeholder engagement & consultation
  • Biodiversity Management Plans
  • Surface Water Management Plans
  • Site Waste Management Plans
  • Noise Management Plans
  • Dust Management Plans

Surface Water Management Plans (SWMP)

Surface water management using SuDS is a critical part of protecting the water environment during construction and is often a requirement by environmental regulators.

IKM’s environmental management consultants proactively work with clients to ensure mitigation measures stated in planning submissions are effectively implemented so that the project remains compliant with planning consent.

Our experience in the design of sustainable drainage management systems for construction projects, coupled with site supervision, has proved invaluable in ensuring compliance. Our services include:
