Making sure everything goes your way
We are very pleased with the service provided by Multiproject. Together with my husband I run a construction company and often have several projects running at the same time, so we needed help with their planning and design estimates. Multiproject took full responsibility for preparing a plan for an architect and a schedule of works - helped establish a list of materials, equipment and the necessary number of employees. I highly recommend Multiproject services, especially for those who run multiple building projects at one time.

Chris from London

When carrying out the project we had a huge problem with a client who blamed me and my staff for late work, even though the problems were on his side. Unfortunately, the cost estimate and contract I created was incomplete and not very professional. That's when I decided to look into Multiproject and through them I was able to provide a professional cost estimate and a contract from a new customer and I had complete control over the work. I highly recommend all Multiproject services, are masters at their work in Britain.

Bart Kolosowski – Multiproject
I have worked collaboratively with Bart Kolosowski on a number of projects recently. Several things set Bart aside from others in his profession: firstly, as he comes from a background in Construction he has a very thorough and practical understanding of materials, techniques, details and regulations; secondly he has a ‘hands-on’ approach and is prepared to make helpful suggestions and engage in problem solving; thirdly he has genuine interest and passion in the all facets of the industry, in particular in improving efficiency. This approach can only be in the interests of all parties, be they client, Contractor or Architect. We endorse this ethos and believe that investing in Multiproject’s services will provide a valuable return for either Contractor or Client.

Site Waste Management Plans (SWMP)

Site Waste Management Plans are legally required in England for any project with a total cost of more than £300,000. The plans must be produced by principle contractors and included in their Health & Safety files held on site.
They are part planning document, and part procedural record. Before work starts on a project the plans should identify the types of waste expected to be produced, estimate the amount of each type of waste, and have proposed actions for each type of waste that states their disposal or re-usage. The plans must also be kept updated during the works, with a record being made of the actual quantities and types of waste, and with details of how waste was re-used or disposed of.
Why Site Waste Management Plans (SWMP) were implemented

The regulations requiring Site Waste Management Plans came into effect in 2008, and were a response to a poor record in the UK construction industry for both resource efficiency and poor waste management. This included a growing level of illegal fly-tipping with 87,597 of construction waste fly-tipping incidents being reported in 2006/7. During this period, of the more serious illegal fly-tips investigated by the Environmental Agency, 31% were construction related waste. In addition there are the obvious benefits to be found in re-using and recycling materials rather than adding to the UK's overstretched landfill sites.
How Construction Companies Benefit

Various studies have proven that careful planning can impact dramatically on a project's waste cost. Money is saved on materials through the re-use, by cutting down on the amount of waste disposal costs are reduced, as is the space needed to contain waste on site. Using local and specialist waste disposal firms can also bring down expenditure through reclamation or lower transporting costs.
Construction site waste management can also gain two credits with the Code for Sustainable Homes in the UK. One credit can be gained for having procedures and commitments to reduce the amount of waste generated, a second for sorting waste by, and diversion of waste from landfill to re-use or recycling.

Staying within the SWMP legislation

Both the client and the principle contractor are legally responsible for ensure a Waste Management Plan is in place prior to any demolition or construction project begins. Legally the plan must include details of the site, client, main contractor and estimated cost. Both the client and the main contractor must declare within the document that they will ìtake all reasonable stepsî to dispose of waste in accordance with Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990(3) and with the Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulations 1991 and that waste will be ìefficiently and appropriately managedî. This is to ensure that the plan is put into action wherever possible, and not just written and then ignored.
The plan must contain a chart showing the types of waste that will arise due to the works, estimations of the quantity, volume or weight of each type of waste and the action that will be taken for each type. Actions would fall under the headings of recycling, recovery, re-use or disposal. Construction methods and materials should also be listed, as should the contractors used to dispose of waste, or the method and site of disposal if not contracted out.
SWMPs for Projects Less Than £500,000 but more than £300,000

The legislation differs in its requirements for smaller and larger projects. No legislation is in place for smaller (less than £300,000) projects. Where the total cost, excluding vat, is higher than £300,000 but less than £500,000 the records that need to be kept are slightly less detailed than for projects costing £500,000 or more.
However, records need to be kept that document what waste leaves the site. This data must include the name of the person and company transporting the waste, the type of waste, the disposal site it is being taken to.
Prior to project completion, and within in the last three months of construction, an additional statement needs to be added to the plan asserting that waste disposal was monitored regularly on site, and giving an explanation for any deviation from the original. Deviations could include a higher than expected amount of waste or using a different waste management company.

SWMPs for Projects More Than £500,000

Where the total cost of a project is more than £500,000 further detail must be recorded during construction. The registration number of the waste management services' employee tasked with transporting the waste, and the permit number of the disposal site (or a note that they are registered as exempt from needing a permit should that be the case).
Again a record should be added in the finishing three months of a project stating that the waste disposal was monitored regularly, and giving an explanation of any departure from the plan. It must also incorporate a comparison of the actual volume or weight of waste generated against the estimation, and an estimate of cost savings achieved by the use of the plan.
Rolling reviews also need to be recorded within the plan, with reviews made at least every six months. These should state the type and quantity of waste, and it's method of re-use, recycling, recovery or disposal. If waste was recycled or reused and record needs to be made of whether this was on or off site. If waste was disposed of then the method and location of its disposal needs to be recorded.
