WRc to launch CESWI Update

Posted: Tuesday 22nd March 2011

At the beginning of March 2011, WRc is publishing the new 7th edition of its Civil Engineering Specification for the Water Industry (CESWI 7). This is the Specification for use in all civil engineering contracts let by Water Undertakers in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It supersedes the Sixth Edition (2004) and reflects the water industry’s requirement for comprehensive, universal and relevant specifications for civil engineering contracts.

Sarah Wilcox, Technical Secretary at WRc says “The specification is based on performance requirements allowing the Contractor to decide upon a method of working. This 7th edition has been rewritten to reflect the experience of the UK Water Industry and the contractors since the last edition was published, and includes new standards and working practices, together with new technologies and more sustainable options”.

The document will be released at the beginning of March and is available to order before release now in both book format and a web-based version.
