Construction management plans are important and necessary to prevent the construction, demolition and excavation of building sites from affecting the health, safety, amenity, traffic and the environment in the area where the construction is happening. (City of Melbourne, 2012)
The construction management plan has been prepared for the management for the development at NO.14 Batesford Road, Malvern East 3145 on behalf of EcoHomes Construction Company. This plan will outline some important elements required in a CMP and include a detailed waste and environment management plan.
In the left and right sides of the site are existing house which are the same size as the residence which will be constructed on the site. In front of the site is the Batesford Road, which is a not too wide.
There are a number of essential stages during construction of the project both before and during construction. Preparation and establishment of the site are the most important stages during the construction sequences.
A. Site preparation
As the first and essential stage in the construction process , site preparation includes the interpretation of geotechnical information, construction of retaining walls, cut and fill operations, shoring, ground leveling, soil stabilization, management and handling of hazardous substances, plant and machinery for site preparation.
B. Site establishment
The construction of a project is a complex task. There are many people involved and different trades require different services and amenities to support their works. Before the construction phases start, it is required to have established the following items:
• Appropriate access
• Services including water & electricity supplying
• Wash bays
• Equipment and place for material handling(gloves, jacks, trolleys, hoists)
• Rubbish disposal
• Liquids disposal
• First aid areas
• Silt socks
• Storage for materials
At the concreting stage, electrical and plumbing services will begin rough in and fit offs, drainage will be installed, steel reinforcement will be installed, the slab will be poured and will need to be set aside for 28 days to set
The framing stage takes into account all aspects of framing works.
E. Lock up
At this stage of the project, the roof tiles, external cladding materials, the wiring of electrical cables can begin.
During this stage, the installation of insulation, the plasterboard, the cabinetry, the flooring, the installation of electrical and plumbing fittings should be done.
Till this stage, the majority of the building works should already have been completed. Painting, landscaping, paving, installation of white goods and cleaning works need to be done.
Public safety is one of the most important things on a construction site, not only for the well being of other people but to avoid and legal matters that can be controlled. The general public needs to be carefully protected from the activities occurring on the building site. And the site is requested to be neat and tidy to maintain public safety and local amenity.
Since this project is a dwelling which is along the road and the construction site is very flat and regular, public safety of this project can be easily controlled in the ways as follows:
• 48 hours written notice is required to given to Council prior to works commencing
• Provide details of any construction zone permit
• Provide details of any permit to occupy space on a road or footpath
• Provide details of any permanent or temporary vehicle crossing permit
• Post warning signage where danger may occur
• Clear out rubbish or redundant materials from the passing road in time
• Store the dangerous materials and chemicals away from direct contact to the public
Site amenity & Site Security are very important to keep construction and materials from theft and damage and protect the workers from injury. There are many methods to keep the construction site secure:
• A secure area to lock up the tools and materials is required.
• Monitoring the access of the site 24 hourly with a camera and alarming when something usual happens.
• All workers need to be adequately fenced to prevent danger to life.
• Permitting the public enter the site during construction
• A first aid house is required in case of incident.
• If there are dangerous chemicals stored on site, a signage is requested to erect to keep everybody know.
A noise and vibration management plan has been developed for three reasons: 1.To minimize the generation of noise and vibration from construction activities occurring on site and its impact on surrounding residents, businesses and workers.2.To comply with the Industrial Noise Policy goals.3.Establish and maintain good relations with community and adjacent neighbor sites.
Noise will be generated on the project site during construction by vehicle movements, generators, heavy machinery (e.g. Excavators and rock breakers) and hand-held machinery and tools. Some additional vehicle noise may be generated by the thoroughfare of vehicles using transport corridors to and from the site.
All work will be undertaken during daytime hours, being 7am to 6pm Monday to Fridays, and 8am to 1pm Saturdays except in emergency situations where required to ensure safety is maintained.
When planning for construction work that will include vibration work make all practical efforts to protect vibration sensitive buildings and the amenity of the occupier’s of buildings.
Apply a practical and economical combination of vibration control measures to manage vibration impacts such as:
• Substitution by an alternative process
• Restricting times when work is carried out
• Screening or enclosures
• Consultation with affected residents.
The objectives of air and dust Management are:
• Maintain the current levels of local air quality during construction activities.
• To minimize the generation of dust on the project site.
• To implement appropriate controls to suppress dust and other suspended particles in accordance with the consent conditions and risk management requirements.
• To minimize all potential outdoor issues relating to contaminated soil or groundwater.
Heavy machinery (mobile and fixed) may contribute to emissions (diesel pollution) to the local atmosphere. Exposed soils and unsealed vehicle access may contribute to dust generation and affect local air quality, impacts upon native fauna and flora and reduce resident amenity.
The generation of dust from the site can be a major nuisance to local activities as well as creating unacceptable working conditions and causing the loss of topsoil. The key measures to addressing this issue are as follows:
• Emissions of dust due to traffic movement. Limit areas of disturbance to the minimum necessary;
• Emissions of dust due to wind erosion of stockpile material and exposed soil. Cover, mulch or rapidly vegetate areas where practicable to minimize wind erosion; install mitigation devices to reduce the transfer of spoil and dust;
• Emissions of volatile gases, vapor and odor from exposure and handling of contaminated soils and/or contaminated water.
• Ensure water carts are available to dampen approaches, access roads and other susceptible surfaces;
All disturbed areas shall be stabilized as soon as practicable to prevent or minimize wind blowing dust;
• trafficable areas shall be clearly defined by guide posts or other suitable barriers to prevent unnecessary vehicle movement onto other areas;
• A water cart will be employed as required to dampen work areas and exposed soils to prevent the emission of excessive dust from the site.
• A wheel washing/shaking facility shall be constructed at the access point to the site if appropriate.
• Trucks transporting material from the site shall be covered immediately after loading to prevent windblown dust emissions and spillages. The covering must be maintained until immediately before unloading the trucks;
• the tailgates of all trucks leaving the premises must be securely fixed prior to loading or immediately after unloading to prevent loss of materials;
• all access roads shall be surfaced in selected materials, Mud stone, clay stone and shale stone shall not be used;
• Subcontractors will maintain all construction equipment to ensure exhaust emissions comply with the relevant Air Regulations issued under the State legislation;
• cleared vegetation, demolition materials and other waste material shall not be burnt on the site and no fires of any kind shall be lit;
• all waste material will be removed from the site in a manner described in the Waste Management Plan;
The objectives of environment management and waste management are:
1. To avoid, whenever possible, the generation of wastes.
2. To recycle a minimum of 60% of all Hard Waste Material, and Soft Waste Material generated on the construction site, thus achieving up to 60% education/avoidance in waste to landfill.
Waste Management will follow the preferred hierarchy of avoidance/reduce, re-use, recycle, treat and dispose. Best Practice should be adopted wherever possible, to achieve waste minimization and reduction.
In addition the project will:
• liaise with Subcontractors to identify areas where they can reduce waste and reuse materials in their respective trades;
• meet local, state and federal waste minimization legislation and environmental standards;
• prevent pollution and damage to the environment;
• protect the safety and health or our employees and the public;
Waste Materials generated on site are to managed such that recycling is maximized and the volume of waste transported to landfill is minimized.
Construction waste minimization requires early planning and establishment of a “Waste Minimization Culture” by all participants in the Design, Construction and End User process. Waste minimization is a key element in life cycle analysis, material selection and specification.
Materials selected must be fit for use. The use of building materials that are fully recycled and/or include recycled material in their production will be maximized where practicable.
All disposal documentation from construction processes should be supplied to BLL and filed in the site records for verification purposes.
Major Subcontractors should submit prior to commencement development and implementation any waste minimization initiatives (eg. Use of a recycled product).
Detail site waste minimization details including as a minimum the following:
• two practical measures associated with their works to prevent waste entering on site;
• two waste streams resulting from their works which can be recycled and will be actively managed as part of their waste reduction plan;
• alternative products containing recycled material that could be utilized in their works, in place of more traditional materials, which conform and meet with the design specification;
To address traffic issues arising from construction of the project and to establish general guidelines and standards that address the issues.
The primary issues that affect construction projects include:
• general site access and egress
• interaction with existing facilities and operations
• the timing and extent of material deliveries ;
• traffic conflicts with both existing vehicles and other construction traffic;
• traffic congestion and conflicts on external roads;
• signage and directions;
During site preparation, we need to consider carefully the traffic circulation. Once the construction commences, some rules must be observed.
• Only site personnel and authorized visitors shall be permitted to enter the work areas.
• Delivery of materials needs to be planned and scheduled to minimize disruptions to others users
• And local residents.
• All construction traffic for internal works shall access the site via the main site access points
• Truck movements to be restricted to specified routes. Local roads to be avoided.
• Parking, visitor and delivery areas to be clearly marked.
• Vehicles departing the site shall proceed through a ‘shaker-pad’ facility to prevent site material
• Tracking onto the public road system.
