As large construction projects go, they don’t get much bigger than the energy supplier EDF’s ‘Big Carl’. This super-crane stands at 820ft tall and weighs in at 10,000 tonnes. He was brought in to oversee the construction of the new Hinkley Point C (HPC) nuclear reactor which is the first nuclear power plant to be built in the UK for 20 years.  

So just how do you manage the environmental compliance on such a huge construction project?

We will learn the answer to that question and more at this online forum led by CIEH volunteers in the South West and West of England and free to attend for all members. 

We will be joined by Ben Crisp, NNB Site Environmental Engineer for EDF to look at the environmental compliance, including nuisance, required in the context of this large construction project. Ben will give an overview of the HPC project and discuss how they have maintained construction and compliance on this throughout the pandemic.
