CIOB webcast examines SWMPs as requirements become law

A webcast which examines the benefits of Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs) has been launched just before the requirements become law on April 6 2008.

The film, available via the internet from today, has been put together by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), working with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP).

Large construction companies were also invited by the CIOB to share their tips and experience of using SWMPs.

The film, which offers an insight in to how different companies operate their SWMPs includes toolkits, case studies and interviews with clients, contractors and professional bodies.

Companies featured include Taylor Woodrow, Wates, Skanska, Davis Langton, The John Lewis Partnership, the Bristol Hospital Trust and the UK Green Building Council.
A variety of sites feature from hospitals to department stores and commercial office buildings.
