Biodiversity indicators for construction projects (W005)
Construction projects, whether commercial developments, housing estates, infrastructure or public-sector projects, all have the potential to damage natural habitats, threatening wildlife and plant species.
The construction industry therefore has an important role to play in protecting sensitive sites and minimising damage to ecology.
BRE and CIRIA have developed the following set of complementary biodiversity
indicators that allow the impact of construction projects on biodiversity to be
measured: 1. Impact on biodiversity: product; 2. Impact on biodiversity:
construction process; and 3. Area of habitat.
