RSK has been working on the 2012 industrial and commercial (I&C) and construction and demolition (C&D) waste survey reports since April 2013 when we teamed up with subcontractor Urban Mines. Urban Mines had the relevant experience after conducting the last survey in Wales in 2007, and RSK had the GPS (government procurement service) system registration required to tender for the work, making it a perfect partnership. RSK took on a project management role and was responsible for the data analysis and report writing, while Urban Mines coordinated the management of the surveys from arranging appointments to analysing the data received with its bespoke database software.
The surveys took place over six months and involved assessing a quota of companies from a predetermined sample frame accounting for industrial classifications and employee-size bands. After survey completion in January this year, RSK was tasked with producing the report and manipulating the data to create the required graphs and tables to show the headline results.
RSK’s success was underlined by the outstanding feedback received from the client upon completion of the work. John Fry, waste advisor for National Resources Wales, emailed the businesses involved to say, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your hard work and contributions since the project began. I am very grateful for the support received from you all and hope that working on the project has been as good from your perspective as it has from ours.”
