Did you know … excess soil is a numbers game

The soil quantities listed in the key regulatory documents are not similar. It is important to understand how the numbers are applied in which circumstances.

Did you know … Similarities and differences between the human body and buildings.
  • Humans have brains, buildings do not (lucky for us).
  • Humans have skin and clothes, buildings have so called ‘envelope’ (walls and roof).
  • Humans have intricate circulation systems, buildings have HVAC, electrical, plumbing systems.
  • Humans reproduce, buildings do not (definitely good for us).
  • Humans and buildings need maintenance on the inside and outside.
  • Humans generate waste, so do buildings.
