Construction Method Statement - Guideline

When submitting a tender you will generally be requested to submit with the Tender an Outline Method Statement describing how the Works are to be designed, procured, constructed and completed and it should refer to the technical specification to ascertain the requirements for each element of Works.

Generally within 28 days of the award of a Project the Contractor will be required to submit a General Method Statement describing how each stage of the Project is to be designed, procured, constructed, commissioned and handed over.

A General Method Statement should be supplemented during the duration of the Contract by Detail Method Statements that describe how key works, trades and MEP systems are to be designed, installed and commissioned. In addition to the above all hazardous work activities should be described by the issue of Detail Method Statement.

Method Statements should always be issued to the Engineer for his consent. As a guideline each Method Statement should be structured and prepared in the following format:-

1) Scope of Works

2) Access/Egress

3) Lighting

  • Safety Lighting

10) Emergency Arrangements
