Environmental surveying and demolition

The purpose of this guide is to clarify how environmental surveying constitutes a value-creating element in demolition and renovation projects. It is often found that the client gives a low priority to environmental surveying in their planning and budgeting of a demolition project, since it can appear to be a costly and time-consuming task that simply prevents the demolition work from getting started. But by using the results of the environmental survey actively and throughout the project, there are significant benefits to be gained – with regard to planning and staying within budget and timetable, health and safety, collaboration between the parties involved, etc.
