Discuss About Site
The term ‘building site’ is often used interchangeably with construction site, although this tends to indicate that building/s (and sometimes, more specifically, housing) are being constructed, whereas the term ‘construction site’ can refer to all types of works, such as road construction, sewer construction, landscaping, and so on.
Typically, land will become a construction site when it is handed over to a contractor to begin the construction works. Regulation 6 of the CDM regulations requires that notice is given to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) as soon as is practicable before the construction phasebegins. On projects involving more than one contractor, the CDM regulations also require that the client appoints a principal contractor to co-ordinate the construction phase.
