detailed consultations with all relevant parties, throughout the
duration of a project. For example, the company believes that by
working with the statutory bodies and interested parties, (rather
than against them), the ultimate needs of the client will be far
a key team player, within large, multi-disciplinary teams. BCM Environmental
Services Limited has, in several instances, been employed by a large
international environmental consultancy, (ERM), to undertake the
role of an environmental specialist ‘embedded’ within
the engineering team during the design/EIA phases of large multi-national
oil and/or gas pipeline projects. In this role, Brian Minshull worked
remotely, (and often in radically different time-zones), from the
rest of the EIA effort, in the design offices of the project engineering
and/or client teams, and facilitated the flow of all pertinent environmental
data to the engineering team, and all relevant engineering data
to the EIA team;
the clients requirements, and the environmental implications of
the same, and managing both without compromising either the clients
wishes, or good environmental practice; and,
the environmental practice of the ‘live’ project conforms
as closely as possible to the environmental principles of the same.
Such principles are typically established prior to construction
during the planning phases, and in some instances are created purely
to facilitate planning clearance. The company believes that in addition
to ensuring close adherence to the guidelines established during
the planning phases by good, ‘hands-on’ environmental
management during construction, the key to this is the careful understanding
of the project, and the preparation of environmental documentation
drafted specifically for the project, in conjunction with the project
team and statutory bodies and well in advance of construction.
Company Project Procedure
As Managing Director, each project is managed by Brian Minshull,
who is ultimately responsible for all aspects of that project and
liaises directly with the client. As appropriate, he will delegate
aspects of each project to associates, while retaining overall control
of the project. Final reports are checked and authorised by Brian
Minshull and the appropriate experts as required.
BCM Environmental Services Limited has its own in-house quality
assurance procedures and is developing these with the aim of obtaining
ISO9002 registration in the near future.
