Groundwork: Section D Insitu/precast concrete: Section E Masonry: Section F (1-) 01 SITE INVESTIGATION A copy of a site investigation report is included in the tender documents. SEE APPENDIX F 05 EXISTING SERVICES: Information relating to existing services is included in APPENDIX E 10 CONTAMINATION AND REMEDIATION WORKS All work undertaken in connection with contaminated materials must be carried out in strict accordance with the requirements of the consultant engineer/chemist/ environmental scientist. The works must be fully supervised by the consultant engineer/chemist/ environmental scientist. Consultants employed in connection with contaminated materials must be suitably experienced and qualified and must hold insurance for work in connection with contaminated materials. Any chemical analysis of samples must be undertaken by the engineer/chemist/environmental scientist and a NAMAS accredited laboratory. Any works must be approved by the Environment Agency (where required), the Local Authorities Environmental Services and the CA. On completion of any works in connection with contaminated materials a validation report must be submitted which much be approved by the Environment Agency (where required), the Local Authorities Environmental Services and the CA. The report where necessary should include the results of any additional investigations/sampling etc., undertaken to validate the remediation works and where materials have been removed from site all appropriate licenses and haulage notes. All contaminated materials removed from site must be disposed of to at a licensed waste site. (16) FOUNDATIONS: Insitu/precast concrete: Section E (16) 01 ANTI-NOISE AND VIBRATION MEASURES: Should driven piles be used ground induced vibrations from the construction works must be monitored at all times. These results should be checked against permissible levels given in BS 7385 Part 2; 1983 entitled "Evaluation & Measurement for Vibration in Buildings" in order to prevent structural damage to the adjacent/nearby buildings, roads, bridges, embankments, services and other structures.
