2) The chemical wastage used for construction are usually thrown into the river and cause water pollution. 3) Due in large part to clearing of vegetation and excavating, construction activity can heavily pollute the surroundings environment, particularly surrounding water pools, which have experienced an increase in pollution. Solutions to the above environmental issues

1. Erosion and sediment controls-construction firms should design, install and maintain to minimize the discharge of pollutants and the amount of soil exposed during construction activity. 2. Rules should apply on construction to limit the exposure of building material products and construction waste 3. Hardware, appliances and fixtures should be reused or recycled. 4. Construction project should be accelerated to reduce traffic disturbance and reduce associated emissions and fuel costs. Integration of environmental considerations into construction(L) Environmental consideration is the spectrum of environmental media, resources, or programs that may affect by or impact on the planning operation. To integrate these considerations into construction, there are 3 most importance factors. 1. Minimization of waste The waste load discharged to the environment need to be reduce and minimize, we need to establish, track, and minimize our waste reduction goals. Prioritize materials that can be reused or recycled and avoid using excess materials. 2. Energy efficiency High energy efficiency in the construction process is important. Using outdated equipment while constructing will decreases productivity and requires more energy consumption to complete the job. Machines need to be always updated in order to increase efficiency. 3. sustainability

Long-term sustainability of building is also one of the environmental considerations in construction. We need to maximize overall efficiency of construction with an integrated design, energy efficiency, and building location in order to maintain the sustainability of the building. Project team training, competence & continuity(L) Project team training programs provide realistic experiences that empower individuals to contribute to common goals. Through training, the team will improve productivity, motivation and skills. Briefing about the project before construction need to be held in the training in order to let the team acknowledge their roles and responsibilities in construction sites. Competency for project construction team are the essential responsibilities of construction companies, in order to provide a basic framework for manpower development including employment, performance measurement, and organizational ability improvement. These reflect the key characteristics of construction companies. Project team continuity with context for the construction saves time and effort and lets the project be malleable. In order to let the project runs smoothly, the team need to do reference about the project before construction. Context of the progression during the construction need to be recorded and kept.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
