What is the Waste Management for Construction Engineers Programme?

Waste Management is an integral part of civil engineering & construction projects.  Environmental & waste management problems often present challenges for construction engineers.  This course seeks to identify the risks associated with waste and create solutions to managing the cost and  compliance aspects of waste management on construction projects.


The construction sector generates almost 35% of all the waste in Europe and in Ireland in 2021 generated 8.8 million tonnes of waste per year.  Planning waste management activities in a construction project has become a significant feature of the design and construction activity and often introduces additional cost through unforeseen waste management requirements  caused by contaminated soils and demolition materials.  This course provides information on all aspects of waste management in construction projects.   Specifically this will cover

  • the legal requirements for waste management
  • selecting appropriate final destinations,
  • approaches to managing risk and contamination
  • definition of waste and waste classification, dealing with soils
  • by products and end of waste as tools for waste management
  • waste economics
  • regulators and site inspection

We will also review the requirements for resource management plans that need to be developed before the activity commences.  Delegates will be provided with an up to date manual on the relevant waste legislation and uptodate guidance on construction waste management.  The course also includes selecting waste management contractors, the role of Article 27 by-products and consenting of mobile waste management plant and equipment.

Who is this course for?

Civil and structural engineers, project managers, architects and planners.
