BCM Environs - "Landscapes and
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 clearly defined.

 

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 the image to view.
