You are required to assess the impact of waste management in civil engineering projects.
The report should cover the following aspects:
A brief overview of the key pertinent areas related to your project areas (e.g. Civil)
A critical review of the key advantages and limitations of the use of waste management using appropriate case studies. The emphasis here should be on your chosen discipline area (civil), however, the holistic picture should not be neglected. Focus should be on:
• waste prevention – the key role of designing out waste
• waste management – use of recycling and reuse
What are key lessons learnt and how these can be used to improve the future?
Key conclusions and recommendations that you would make.
N.B. You may NOT use the London 2012 Olympic park development as one of your case studies sites.
Please note all references used should be properly cited and your report should contain discussion of the key issues raised. Please ensure any diagrams presented are clear and concise. Marks are given for clear, concise and substantiated statements, supported where appropriately by references.
The marking scheme used will be:
• An overview written that clearly highlights the key pertinent areas (10 %)
• A detailed review of advantages/limitations of waste management with a clear focus, appropriately illustrated with case studies (30%)
• Discussion that draws out the key lesson that can be learnt and how you think these will improve things in the future. (30%)
• Clear, concise conclusions that summarise the key salient points raised. (20%)
• Effective use of reference (5%)
• Overall quality and presentation of the report (i.e. layout, structure and use of clear/concise language) (5%)
