ECoW

ENVIRONMENTAL CLERK OF WORKS

The effective use of an ECoW on your project will help to prevent significant impacts on the environment and ecology by contractors and subcontractors. The ECoW will work closely with the client and contractor to ensure compliance with any planning conditions, contract conditions or CIRIA best practice guidance. The ECoW role is to ensure that issues are addressed early enough in the construction process and that each of the parties is aware of their roles and responsibilities within the project.
