This is a self assessment tool using indicators and monitoring. The tool is in two parts: <br> i) project profile â completed once for a project. Collates details about the project such as type of project and site and location.<br> ii) projects performance - measures against a set of sustainability issues, while steering the project towards sustainability. Should be completed on a quarterly basis and considers issues such as water saving measures incorporated, material chosen on best value and plans to monitor pollution. <br>

Description of tool - availability
The tool is available electronically in Microsoft Excel and in paper format and is available to freely download from the Constructing Excellence website.

Description of tool - existing
This tool was created by Constructing Excellence in response to the Egan ´Rethinking Construction´ targets published in 1998 which was commissioned by UK government.

Description of tool - adaptation
The tool did not require adaptation to the local context.


Name of tool
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

Description of tool - character
This generic tool is a statutory process in Europe that is a result of Directive 85/337/EEC introduced in 1985 and since reinforced by amendments in 1997 and 2003 to assist with transparency, public participation and scope.</p> <p>The key elements of an EIA are Scoping (identifying key issues and concerns of interested parties); screening (decide whether an EIA is required based on information collected); Identifying and evaluating alternatives (list alternative sites and techniques and the impacts of each); Mitigating measures dealing with uncertainty (review proposed action to prevent or minimise the potential adverse effects of the project) and Issuing environmental statements (report the findings of the EIA).</p>

Description of tool - availability
This is not a web based tool, but the general concept is available from reports, and the directive on EIA: Directive 85/337/EEC.

Description of tool - existing
This is a generic tool.

Description of tool - adaptation
There is not one set method for EIA, components of EIA can be adapted to the local context. However this adaptability is often criticised as it prevents comparisons between EIAs.


Name of tool
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

Description of tool - character
KPIs consist of indicators and monitoring. The Construction Industry Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are national sets against which a project or company can benchmark its performance. The KPIs chosen for this project assessed issues such as completing the job on time, on budget, to a high quality together with health and safety etc.. An assessment was completed by each member of the team during monthly project meetings to evaluate the performance of the Partnership and to ensure that its stated values became routine and were not left as a well meaning, but little used document. This allowed for any changes in performance to be monitored and responded to immediately if a problem arose. Quarterly KPI reports were produced through out the projects life.

Description of tool - availability
Data required for KPIs and comparisons is available for download from the website <a href="http://www.dti.gov.uk/construction/kpi/"target="blank">http://www.dti.gov.uk/construction/kpi/</a>.

Description of tool - existing
KPIs are constantly updated to allow the data sets to contain the latest recorded information.

Description of tool - adaptation
Different KPIs will be appropriate to different projects, it is for the projects to identify suitable KPIs for the context.


Name of tool
New Tredegar Community Partnership

This is a management tool. The concept is fairly general but Constructing Excellence outlines it as: (i) commitment to the concept (ii) self-assessment of the project prior to the partnership (iii) selection of partners (iv) the mutual objective of all the partners (v) agreement on a dispute resolution mechanism (vi) agreement of key performance indicators for assessment of continuous improvement (vii) contractual agreements for the partnership and procurement procedures (viii) an agreement of risks and rewards related to the projects development e.g. targets may relate to KPIs, cost, time etc.

Description of tool - availability
It is freely available with guidance being available from Constructing Excellence, a UK Government supported organisation. <a href="http://www.newtredegar-newstart.co.uk"target="blank">http://www.newtredegar-newstart.co.uk</a>

Description of tool - adaptation
The concept applies to all development programme management.


Name of tool
Secured by Design tool

Description of tool - character
This is a UK police initiative to encourage the building industry to adopt crime prevention measures in design of developments to assist in reducing the opportunity for crime and the fear of crime, creating a safer and more secure environment. It is intended to achieve a better quality of life by addressing crime prevention at the earliest opportunity in the design, layout and construction of homes and commercial premises. In terms of sustainability it also contributes to the Councilâs strategic commitment to community safety. </p> <p>The scheme functions on two levels (i) An award to developers who build developments to Secured by Design standards and (ii) A licensing scheme for products which meet police preferred specifications. In order to achieve the award the following safety issues must be considered: Roads and footpaths, landscaping (including fencing), street lighting, communal areas, dwelling identification, dwelling boundaries, utilities, car parking, front door, side and back door, French windows, garages, communal entrance doors, flat entrance doors served off a shared corridor or stairway, security lighting and conservatories.</p> <p>Information is freely available on the internet <a href="http://www.securedbydesign.com/"target="blank">http://www.securedbydesign.com/</a></p>

Description of tool - availability
Information on Secured by design specifications and standards are available free from <a href="http://www.securedbydesign.com/"target="blank">http://www.securedbydesign.com/</a>The information is currently identified by ACPO CPI for Secured by Design "Police Preferred Specification" licences. Further standards will be added as considered appropriate by ACPO CPI.

Description of tool - existing
The tool has been developed using UK standards and covers the entire country.
