Materials Management Plan (MMP)

Materials Management Plan

The Challenge

IKM was requested to provide support in managing soils during a significant civils programme and capital expenditure project. A large volume of soil was anticipated to require excavation whilst there was also a need for suitable soils elsewhere onsite to create a platform.

The Solution

IKM prepared a materials management plan to provide site construction personnel with a clear pathway to deal with soils. This provided a methodical and robust means of identifying soils to be excavated and assessing their potential for reuse elsewhere onsite. This included collection of chemical and geotechnical soils samples to confirm suitability for reuse. Where soils were deemed unsuitable for reuse onsite, soils were then sentenced for offsite disposal to an appropriate disposal facility, with landfill being the least favoured option.
