What information will Spill Station require?
The development of site plans is always been dependent on the quality of the information supplied by the Site, therefore the information below can greatly assist the process therefore keeping the Site Plan development on time and on budget.
- Any existing site plans available (either electronic CAD or scaled drawing). As sites often have a complicated multi-layered CAD drawing or none at all, Spill Station consultants are very familiar with working with clients to produce a range of Site Maps that can be used from that point on.
- An on-site guide to walk around the Site to assist with directions and chemical storage information.
- An up to date Chemical Manifest to accurately mark the site plan.
