Earthworks are commonly associated with transport infrastructure, but there are many other important applications:. BS gives recommendations and guidance for unreinforced earthworks forming part of general civil engineering construction, with the exception of dams.
It also gives recommendations and guidance for temporary excavations such as trenches and pits. BS reflects the actual processes that might be followed on a typical project to deliver the earthworks. In practice earthworks design is an iterative process where the employer, consultant, main contractor, sub-contractors and construction validation team often take design decisions. To reflect this situation BS includes some subjects in more than one clause.
This edition of BS is set out in clauses to reflect the overall earthworks process: This cycle is only broken when the earthworks reach the end of their useful life and are decommissioned.
BS recognizes that construction of new earthworks and the remediation or repair of existing earthworks are activities that have similarities and significant differences.
Wherever possible, clauses cover both construction and remediation activities, which need to be taken into consideration as appropriate.
