Construction Environmental Management Plan

Our team of skilled environmental scientists have prepared more than 300 Construction Environmental Management Plans (CEMP), for a variety of clients (e.g., infrastructure, mining, development, linear construction). A CEMP is typically a requirement for subcontractors reporting to a prime contractor or consultant, to outline how they plan to maintain compliance with environmental regulations during construction activities.

A CEMP may be a component of the Project and Environmental Review process that is regulated by a governing body. If required, a Qualified Environmental Professional (QEP) is required to be retained by a permit holder/Contractor/developer to prepare a CEMP for the project, that is submitted to necessary regulatory parties review.

To prepare a CEMP, our QEPs conduct on-site visits and perform thorough background database screenings to address all components involved in a CEMP. The report includes details of our findings, and outlines mitigation measures and best management practices to ensure environmental protection and guide regulatory compliance for the duration of the project.

Main objectives of the CEMP are to:

  • Describe work procedures to be undertaken to minimize and mitigate adverse impacts to the environment;
  • Provide contractors with sound advice for environmental protection planning and best management practices;
  • Identify any aspects of a project that may present a potential risk to the environment;
  • Identify acceptable water quality criteria for environmental monitoring if required; and
  • Describe emergency response procedures to be undertake to contain and limit impacts to the environment in the event of a spill incident.
