BCM Environs - "Landscapes
places for wildlife and people"
Welcome to the website of BCM Environmental Services
Limited, and to its subsidiary, BCM Environs.
The sequence of activities on any project can be
In this instance the crossing of Spout Burn, a
wooded stream valley on the Scotland- Northern Ireland Pipeline
project, is used to illustrate the key stages of a pipeline construction
pipeline, but the same stages can be applied to the implementation
of any such development.
These key stages can be defined as:
Preparation the initial
stage of a project. By "getting it right on the way in"
i.e. by appropriately planning and preparing the chances of the
project being successful are maximised. This applies equally to
all types of project.
Construction the "crucial"
stage of the project in terms of the project management of infrastructure
projects, such as pipeline ones. It is the stage in which the
main features of the project are created. In other instances the
equivalent would be the creation of the hard landscaping
the "muck-shifting" stage.
Restoration the final
stage of a project, during which the area affected by the project
is either restored to its previous state in the instance ov a
pipeline project. Again, the equivalent would be the creation
of the soft landscaping the planting, fencing, etc..
The following sequences of images are taken from various pipeline
projects and where selected to illustrate these key stages. Click
