Don't expose yourself on contaminated sites (SP119)

Safe working practices on projects must be paramount as even apparently clean, safe sites may have been contaminated at some stage in the past, leaving a legacy of pollution which can affect the health of site workers, occupiers, neighbours, and adjacent land and groundwater resources both during and after redevelopment. Produced as part of CIRIA’s renowned research programme on the remedial treatment of... Details

Prop loads in large braced excavations (PR77)

Embedded walls retaining the sides of large excavations are often supported at some stage in the construction process by temporary props at one or more levels, in order to reduce wall and ground movements. The provision of temporary props is costly in terms of money and time, and there may be risk to the site operatives installing and removing them.

This publication presents the findings of an EPSRC and... Details
