Environment and Social Minimum Requirements for Projects – Design and Construction

active, Most Current
Organization: NR
Publication Date: 2 March 2019
Status: active
Page Count: 34
scope:

This standard is mandatory for all construction and design works carried out by Network Rail and its contractors as part of a GRIP managed project. This standard excludes any works carried out for / on behalf of Route Businesses Maintenance teams.

Examples of when this standard is mandatory include but is not limited to:

a) Designers/Contractors contracted to Network Rail for the provision of design and/or construction services;

b) Network Rail business units where they act as a design or contractor entity according to Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) definitions, e.g. Network Rail Design Delivery and Works Delivery.

The requirements of this standard apply to all land areas impacted by project activities, including the primary development site(s) and, without limitation, any associated temporary work sites, compounds, haul roads, access routes.

Where a joint venture or alliance is established, this standard should be recommended as a minimum when defining contract requirements for those organisations accountable for design or construction within the alliance.

Purpose

This standard sets out Network Rail's minimum requirements for the management of environment and social risks and opportunities during design and/or construction activities.

The implementation of this standard delivers a range of benefits to Network Rail including:

a) improved business cost-efficiency from sustainable practices, such as designing for whole-life energy efficiency, waste minimisation, and capital carbon value engineering;

b) increased social value created by maximising opportunities for inclusive design, considerate construction and socio-economic growth; c) reduced risk of legal and regulatory non-compliance and negative reputational exposure by delivering good practice standards of environmental and social performance.
