whittleassociates work with both Clients and Contractors to set up the Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) and the processes required for its operation.
Under the Site Waste Management Plans Regulations 2008 every construction project in England, valued at over £300,000, is required to create, monitor, update and finally complete and analyse a Site Waste Management Plan.
The Client has a duty to create the SWMP, a planning document that must be prepared prior to the start of construction to identify each type of waste expected to be produced during the project, estimate the quantity of each type that will be produced, and identify the planned waste management action proposed for each different type, including on or off-site reuse, on or off-site recycling, or disposal.
During the construction phase of the project, the principal contractor appointed under SWMPR08 must monitor the plan and update it with details of the waste of each type actually produced, along with the action taken and any removal activity.
When appointed by the Client we assist in creating the forecast of the types and quantities of waste to be produced, and determining the likely forms of reuse, recycling or disposal for them. During the project we can undertake regular monitoring of the SWMP.
When appointed by the Principal Contractor, throughout the construction phase we undertake regular inspections of the SWMP to advise as to whether it is being completed correctly, and that the waste monitoring process is functional. On completion of the project we can perform the post-construction completion of the SWMP, and the comparison and analyses required of the predicted versus the actual waste produced and its management.
