The Construction Insurance Risk Engineers Group (CIREG) has launched the 5th edition of its best practice guidance for prevention of water damage on construction sites, titled 'Managing Escape of Water Risk on Construction Sites'.
The original version, 'Best Practice Guidance for Avoidance and Mitigation of Water Damage in Buildings Under Construction', was first issued in March 2008. Since then, it has been revised four times, the last revision being in June 2015.
The latest (November 2019) update to the CIREG Guidance comes after a sharp rise in the frequency and severity of UK Insurance claims caused by 'escape of water' on construction sites and also in recently completed buildings.
The Guide has been updated with a focus on incorporation of automatic flow monitoring and shut-off devices as well as revised guidance on risk assessments and production of Project Water Management Plans.
