Environmental Engineer Report

Environmental Engineering Reports

To minimise the adverse effects of construction activities on the environment and nearby developments, an action plan and remediation have to be developed. This is where the environmental engineer can help through an environmental engineer report. Environmental engineering in the context of the construction industry focuses on the reduction of waste and pollution caused directly or indirectly by construction activities. It is also the role of the environmental engineer to propose remediation by designing technologies and processes that can help control pollution and reduce the impact on the environment.

What is Included in the Environmental Report?

It is the job of the environmental engineer to integrate environmental science and engineering principles to promote sustainable construction practices. While the type of construction project and location varies, the standard scope of responsibility and priorities remain the same, including the production of a regular environmental report.

Here are some of the details and information that may be included in an environmental report:

  • Assessment of residential, commercial and industrial sites for environmental impact
  • Equipment calibration for use in air, soil and water sampling
  • Designs for waste management systems or disposal of waste by land, sea and air
  • Evaluation of current environmental management systems, and identification of new technologies that can help protect the environment
  • Collection of environmentally-related complaints against the construction project, an investigation of these complaints
  • A set of recommendations and the best remediation approaches for site clean-up and decontamination
  • Advice and recommendations on how to comply with EPA and other regulatory standards

Environmental reports may also cover energy efficiency of the building. Energy efficiency is based on the Building Code of Australia or BCA, considered the main legislative tool in Australia to ensure energy-efficient projects. The code sets the minimum standards that every construction project must comply with. Most of the residential and commercial buildings in Australia are poorly insulated. Thus an environmental report may describe the level of insulation in the building or property. The report may also provide recommendations on how to add insulation to the building or structure.
