Panther Environmental Solutions Ltd have prepared a number of Construction and Demolition Waste Management Plans (C&D WMPs) for various construction projects.
A C&D WMP should be prepared for construction projects which meet or exceed the thresholds set out in the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government publication, “Best Practice Guidelines on the Preparation of Waste Management Plans for Construction and Demolition Projects”, as outlined below:
- New residential development of 10 houses or more;
- New developments other than (1) above, including institutional, educational, health and other public facilities, with an aggregate floor area in excess of 1,250m2;
- Demolition/renovation/refurbishment projects generating in excess of 100m3 in volume, of C&D waste;
- Civil Engineering projects producing in excess of 500m3 of waste, excluding waste materials used for development works on the site.
The purpose of the C&D WMP is to outline the manner in which construction and demolition waste will be managed throughout the construction phase of projects, to ensure compliance with the relevant waste legislation and to ensure waste management activities from the site will not have an adverse impact upon the environment.
