This publication sets out the statutory requirements for signing, lighting, and guarding at street works and road works. This is the core reference manual for utility companies, local authorities, street work contractors and others whose day-to-day business involves street works (works by statutory undertakers and other utility companies etc) and road works (works to maintain or repair road infrastructure). The code, which covers all of the UK and includes national variations, is now compulsory for highway/road authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It applies to all single carriageway roads and dual carriageways with a speed limit of 40 mph or less. The code is now divided into three parts: Basic Principles, Operations, and Equipment and Vehicles; site layout diagrams have been redrawn to make them easier to understand. There is: increased emphasis on using risk assessment and guidance on what to consider in such assessments; strengthened guidance on providing for pedestrians and cyclists and new guidance on traffic control measures related to road closures, one-way working and temporary road obstructions; enhanced advice on other traffic control measures including works near tramways and railways, and mobile/short duration works; and updated advice on high visibility clothing and the signing and conspicuity requirements for work vehicles. Effective from 1 October 2014 when it will supersede the 2001 edition (ISBN 9780115519581).

This title sets out the statutory requirements for signing, lighting and guarding excavations and other street works on all roads except motorways and dual carriageways with hard shoulders. Although the code is directed primarily at the operative, supervisors and managers have an important reponsibility to ensure that all street and road works and operatives are safe. This is a reference manual for utility companies, local authorities, street work contractors and others whose day-to-day business involves street work.

The Urban Tree

There is a growing evidence base that documents the social, environmental and economic benefits that urban trees can deliver. Trees are, however, under threat today as never before due to competition for space imposed by development, other hard infrastructures, increased pressure on the availability of financial provision from local authorities and a highly cautious approach to risk management in a modern litigious society. It is, therefore, incumbent upon all of us in construction and urban design disciplines to pursue a set of goals that not only preserve existing trees where we can, but also ensure that new plantings are appropriately specified and detailed to enable their successful establishment and growth to productive maturity. Aimed at developers, urban planners, urban designers, landscape architects and arboriculturists, this book takes a candid look at the benefits that trees provide alongside the threats that are eliminating them from our towns and cities. It takes a simple, applied approach that explores a combination of science and practical experience to help ensure a pragmatic and reasoned approach to decision-making in terms of tree selection, specification, placement and establishment. In this way, trees can successfully be incorporated within our urban landscapes, so that we can continue to reap the benefits they provide.

The first edition of the Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development, published in 1992, was groundbreaking in many ways. Now in its fifth edition, prepared by a multi-institute task force coordinated by the CIOB and including representatives from RICS, RIBA, ICE, APM and CIC, it continues to be the authoritative guide and reference to the principles and practice of project management in construction and development. Good project management in construction relies on balancing the key constraints of time, quality and cost in the context of building functionality and the requirements for sustainability within the built environment. Thoroughly updated and restructured to reflect the challenges that the industry faces today, this edition continues to drive forward the practice of construction project management. The principles of strategic planning, detailed programming and monitoring, resource allocation and effective risk management, widely used on projects of all sizes and complexity, are all fully covered. The integration of Building Information Modelling at each stage of the project life is a feature of this edition. In addition, the impact of trends and developments such as the internationalisation of construction projects and the drive for sustainability are discussed in context. Code of Practice will be of particular value to clients, project management professionals and students of construction, as well as to the wider construction and development industries. Much of the information will also be relevant to project management professionals operating in other commercial spheres.

Globalisierung und der rasante Fortschritt der Technik sind nur zwei von vielen Gr nden f r den immer st rker werdenden Wettbewerb, quer durch alle Branchen hindurch. Vor diesem Hintergrund kann es sich kaum ein Unternehmen leisten, seine administrativen Abteilungen bei Wertsch pfungs- und Wirtschaftlichkeits berlegungen au en vor zu lassen. Dies verst rkt den Druck auf administrative Unternehmensbereiche, ihren Wertsch pfungsbeitrag zum einen transparent zu machen und zum anderen unter Beachtung der Unternehmensstrategie zu maximieren. Diese Arbeit besch ftigt sich mit den Wertsch pfungsbeitr gen, wie sie von administrativen Abteilungen in Unternehmen geleistet werden (im Speziellen von der Personalabteilung), wie diese Beitr ge zu quantifizieren sind und wie sie maximiert werden k nnen. Dazu werden im ersten Teil die grunds tzliche Problematik des Wertsch pfungsmanagements innerhalb einer Personalabteilung er rtert und theoretische L sungsans tze aufgezeigt. Im zweiten Teil des Buches werden diese L sungsans tze am Beispiel der BayWa AG in die Praxis bertragen.

This code of practice has been designed to improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the construction industry. Main contractors contract with clients to construct (and sometimes design) a project. This code refers to the party employing the contractor as the client, and to the employed party as the contractor. It focuses on the procedures appropriate for the selection of main contractors by competitive tendering. This code of practice is one of a series of documents from the CIB1-5 designed to improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the construction industry. It should be used in conjunction with the other documents in the series. The good practice recommended should be observed in commercial relationships throughout the contractual chain and for the duration of a construction project. Main contractors contract with clients to construct (and sometimes design) a project. This code refers to the party employing the contractor as the client. and to the employed party as the contractor. Main contractors can be selected by competitive tendering, by negotiation or as a result of partnering or a joint venture arrangement. Whatever method is used, selection should be carried out in the spirit of good practice, although specific procedures will vary. This code focuses on the procedures appropriate for competitive tendering. In competition for small or simple works some of the steps described may take place informally For competitive tendering to be effective in providing best value for money it must be seen to be fair and the processes by which decisions are reached must be as open as possible. This applies to all forms of selection. The key principles of good practice to be adopted when appointing contractors are that: clear procedures should be followed that ensure fair and transparent competition in a single round of tendering consisting of one or more stages the tender process should ensure receipt of compliant, competitive tenders tender lists should be compiled systematically from a number of qualified contractors tender lists should be as short as possibles conditions should be the same for all tenderers confidentiality should be respected by all parties sufficient time should be given for the preparation and evaluation of tenders sufficient information should be provided to enable the preparation of tenders tenders should be assessed and accepted on quality as well as price practices that avoid or discourage collusion should be followed tender prices should not change on an unaltered scope of works suites of contracts and standard unamended forms of contract from recognised bodies should be used where they are available there should be a commitment to teamwork from all parties. All construction projects involve risk in a variety of areas. The appropriate assessment and apportionment of these risks is essential to the success of any project. While risk can be transferred to others, this will be reflected in their prices. Selection forms only part of the whole process of construction; the overall success of projects depends on other parts of the process being carried out in the same co-operative spirit. This code stresses the need for clarity and certainty at all times, whatever procurement system is chosen. Compliance with this code will preclude practices such as multiple round tendering or 'Dutch auctioning'.

„Wie kann man verstehen, wer man ist, wenn man nicht weiß, woher man kommt?“ Sie lebt seit über 12 Jahren in New York, ist verheiratet mit einem amerikanischen Juden und fühlt sich deutscher als jemals zuvor. Woher kommt das? Und wer ist sie eigentlich? Die preisgekrönte, 1977 in Karlsruhe geborene Autorin und Illustratorin Nora Krug fragt sich, was Heimat für sie bedeutet, und unternimmt eine literarisch-grafische Spurensuche in der Vergangenheit ihrer Familie: Was hatte Großvaters Fahrschule mit dem jüdischen Unternehmer zu tun, dessen Chauffeur er vor dem Krieg gewesen war? Und was sagen die mit Hakenkreuzen dekorierten Schulaufsätze über ihren Onkel, der mit 18 Jahren im Zweiten Weltkrieg fiel? Ihre gezeichneten und handgeschriebenen Bildergeschichten fügt Krug mit Fotografien, Archiv- und Flohmarktfunden zu einem völlig neuen Ganzen zusammen. „Heimat“ ist ein einzigartiges Erinnerungskunstwerk, in dem Familiengeschichte auf Zeitgeschichte trifft. Ein Graphic Memoir, lebendig, wahr und poetisch erzählt. Dieses eBook beinhaltet farbige Abbildungen und Illustrationen mit handgeletterten Texten. Es ist für die Darstellung auf Tablets optimiert.
