“CEEQUAL uses a credit-based assessment framework, which is applicable to any civil engineering project and includes environmental aspects such as the use of water, energy and land as well as ecology, landscape, nuisance to neighbours, archaeology, waste minimisation and management, and community amenity.
The CEEQUAL award scheme is based on a self-assessment carried out by a trained CEEQUAL Assessor (who can be a member of the applicant’s staff or sub-contracted by the applicant from a list that can be supplied by CEEQUAL Ltd) and verified by an external CEEQAL appointed Verifier (or a team of Verifies for large and/or complex projects). The construction clients, designers and/or contractors applying for an award under the CEEQUAL scheme will use this Manual, together with an Excel spreadsheet, to assess the performance of their project, starting with a scoping process, which is done in consultation with the Verifier. The applicant(s) will need to provide supporting documentary evidence in order to justify any score they award themselves (for example, project records, meeting minutes, photographs, construction record file, appropriately signed statements). The Verifier will use this evidence to ensure that the self-assessment is accurate, and seek changes – increasing or decreasing the score – where appropriate, before the award can be given."
(CEEQUAL Manual Version 2)
"The sections in the scheme have been pre-weighted by CEEQUAL, and these weightings are embedded in the scores awarded for each question. The weightings have been based on consultation within the CEEQUAL Project Advisory Group and their colleagues. The weighting factors as used in the CEEQUAL Version 2 Manual are (this is an abbreviated version, full details can be found on p11 of the manual):
There are four grades of awards for all of the types of Awards:
It also should be pointed out that the CEEQUAL assessment has been designed to reward efforts to go beyond the legal minima, striving for best environmental practice and “going the extra mile”. Therefore a Pass at 25% suggests that the project has taken the necessary steps that can be considered as at or close to current ‘Good Practice’, but without going much further.”
