Guidance On Site Clearances

Before any construction can commence, it is essential that a thorough and reliable site clearance service is carried out, to ensure that the working environment is safe and secure for construction to take place.

BKP Group can provide a diverse selection of waste management solutions, including site clearances, in addition to more specialised services such as asbestos removal, and emergency spill response for both oil and chemical spills.

What Is Usually Involved In A Site Clearance?

Typically speaking a site clearance involves a wide range of different clearance activities. This could range from removing machinery or equipment, disposing of waste left on-site, clearing away vegetation and soil, or even preparing the ground for construction or demolition activities.

  • Vegetation Clearance
    With regards to any vegetation that needs removal, BKP Group can provide a site clearance service to remove undergrowth and large vegetation. It is very important to conduct a thorough vegetation clearance as any roots left can cause cracks in concrete as the root material decays.

  • Surface Soil
    Typically speaking, surface soil is a poor material to build on. This is because surface soil has a very high concentration of decaying materials such as the roots of plants. When clearing surface soil, the topsoil will be first loosened, then removed, and finally transported away for responsible waste management.

  • Waste Disposal
    If any waste items need to be cleared before your construction project can commence, the BKP group are skilled in a diverse range of waste management practices. This ranges from specialist services to deal with hazardous chemicals and other dangerous wastes, all the way to food waste and other recyclable materials.

    As such, regardless of what type of waste you’re dealing with, our highly experienced team of waste management experts are the ideal choice for site clearance waste management and disposal.

What About Emergency Site Clearances?

Site clearances for construction projects are not the only time a clearance service may be necessary. As described by the UK Government, some circumstances which may result in a clearance becoming necessary are: “a fire, explosion, flood, earthquake or an event causing structural collapse (whether naturally occurring or the result of a malicious attack).”

During such a site clearance, it’s essential that the clearance is practiced with extreme care and caution. This is because in its main goal of returning the site to its former condition (or a condition described as “new normal”), the site clearance assists with rescue of casualties, removal of fatalities, and possible securing evidence for an investigation.

As such, in the event of emergencies, site clearances are a key part of not only the restoration process, but also the emergency response and rescue process.
