Sustainable construction guidance notes

Date published: 09 July 2019

Eight sustainable construction guidance notes and an introduction to sustainable construction are available below.


Please note that guidance note three (construction, demolition and excavation waste materials) aims to ensure legal compliance with waste related legislation and to promote best practice.

An important part of this guidance concerns the use of Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs) - these are an important tool for construction companies and their clients, of all sizes, to improve their environmental performance, meet regulatory controls and reduce rising costs of disposing of waste.
