This publication sets out the statutory requirements for signing, lighting, and guarding at street works and road works. This is the core reference manual for utility companies, local authorities, street work contractors and others whose day-to-day business involves street works (works by statutory undertakers and other utility companies etc) and road works (works to maintain or repair road infrastructure). The code, which covers all of the UK and includes national variations, is now compulsory for highway/road authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It applies to all single carriageway roads and dual carriageways with a speed limit of 40 mph or less. The code is now divided into three parts: Basic Principles, Operations, and Equipment and Vehicles; site layout diagrams have been redrawn to make them easier to understand. There is: increased emphasis on using risk assessment and guidance on what to consider in such assessments; strengthened guidance on providing for pedestrians and cyclists and new guidance on traffic control measures related to road closures, one-way working and temporary road obstructions; enhanced advice on other traffic control measures including works near tramways and railways, and mobile/short duration works; and updated advice on high visibility clothing and the signing and conspicuity requirements for work vehicles. Effective from 1 October 2014 when it will supersede the 2001 edition (ISBN 9780115519581).

There is a growing evidence base that documents the social, environmental and economic benefits that urban trees can deliver. Trees are, however, under threat today as never before due to competition for space imposed by development, other hard infrastructures, increased pressure on the availability of financial provision from local authorities and a highly cautious approach to risk management in a modern litigious society. It is, therefore, incumbent upon all of us in construction and urban design disciplines to pursue a set of goals that not only preserve existing trees where we can, but also ensure that new plantings are appropriately specified and detailed to enable their successful establishment and growth to productive maturity. Aimed at developers, urban planners, urban designers, landscape architects and arboriculturists, this book takes a candid look at the benefits that trees provide alongside the threats that are eliminating them from our towns and cities. It takes a simple, applied approach that explores a combination of science and practical experience to help ensure a pragmatic and reasoned approach to decision-making in terms of tree selection, specification, placement and establishment. In this way, trees can successfully be incorporated within our urban landscapes, so that we can continue to reap the benefits they provide.

This NEBOSH-endorsed textbook is matched to the latest syllabus of the National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health. Within the construction industry the need for specialist health and safety training is high due to the high risks involved. This is reflected in recent legislation such as CDM 2007 and explains the consistent demand for courses and learning materials. The text is easy to read, highly illustrated in full color, and supported with checklists, report forms and record sheets used currently in the industry. Students are supported with end-of-chapter questions, a study skills chapter and specimen assignments including specimen answers. As NEBOSH actively grow their qualifications internationally, demand for this book and it’s sister titles continues to increase overseas. High growth markets are the Middle East, Malaysia, India and China.

The first edition of the Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development, published in 1992, was groundbreaking in many ways. Now in its fifth edition, prepared by a multi-institute task force coordinated by the CIOB and including representatives from RICS, RIBA, ICE, APM and CIC, it continues to be the authoritative guide and reference to the principles and practice of project management in construction and development. Good project management in construction relies on balancing the key constraints of time, quality and cost in the context of building functionality and the requirements for sustainability within the built environment. Thoroughly updated and restructured to reflect the challenges that the industry faces today, this edition continues to drive forward the practice of construction project management. The principles of strategic planning, detailed programming and monitoring, resource allocation and effective risk management, widely used on projects of all sizes and complexity, are all fully covered. The integration of Building Information Modelling at each stage of the project life is a feature of this edition. In addition, the impact of trends and developments such as the internationalisation of construction projects and the drive for sustainability are discussed in context. Code of Practice will be of particular value to clients, project management professionals and students of construction, as well as to the wider construction and development industries. Much of the information will also be relevant to project management professionals operating in other commercial spheres.

This code of practice has been designed to improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the construction industry. Main contractors contract with clients to construct (and sometimes design) a project. This code refers to the party employing the contractor as the client, and to the employed party as the contractor. It focuses on the procedures appropriate for the selection of main contractors by competitive tendering. This code of practice is one of a series of documents from the CIB1-5 designed to improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the construction industry. It should be used in conjunction with the other documents in the series. The good practice recommended should be observed in commercial relationships throughout the contractual chain and for the duration of a construction project. Main contractors contract with clients to construct (and sometimes design) a project. This code refers to the party employing the contractor as the client. and to the employed party as the contractor. Main contractors can be selected by competitive tendering, by negotiation or as a result of partnering or a joint venture arrangement. Whatever method is used, selection should be carried out in the spirit of good practice, although specific procedures will vary. This code focuses on the procedures appropriate for competitive tendering. In competition for small or simple works some of the steps described may take place informally For competitive tendering to be effective in providing best value for money it must be seen to be fair and the processes by which decisions are reached must be as open as possible. This applies to all forms of selection. The key principles of good practice to be adopted when appointing contractors are that: clear procedures should be followed that ensure fair and transparent competition in a single round of tendering consisting of one or more stages the tender process should ensure receipt of compliant, competitive tenders tender lists should be compiled systematically from a number of qualified contractors tender lists should be as short as possibles conditions should be the same for all tenderers confidentiality should be respected by all parties sufficient time should be given for the preparation and evaluation of tenders sufficient information should be provided to enable the preparation of tenders tenders should be assessed and accepted on quality as well as price practices that avoid or discourage collusion should be followed tender prices should not change on an unaltered scope of works suites of contracts and standard unamended forms of contract from recognised bodies should be used where they are available there should be a commitment to teamwork from all parties. All construction projects involve risk in a variety of areas. The appropriate assessment and apportionment of these risks is essential to the success of any project. While risk can be transferred to others, this will be reflected in their prices. Selection forms only part of the whole process of construction; the overall success of projects depends on other parts of the process being carried out in the same co-operative spirit. This code stresses the need for clarity and certainty at all times, whatever procurement system is chosen. Compliance with this code will preclude practices such as multiple round tendering or 'Dutch auctioning'.
