The cost of conducting a phase 1 environmental impact assessment can be a significant part of the planning and design costs of a development project. As the project progresses, knowledge of the site will gradually increase and new costs may emerge, while some risks can be reduced.
The first step towards cost-effective management for the phase 1 environmental impact assessment is to conduct an in-depth study of the scope of the AMDAL. The result of the assessment of the scope of the AMDAL should be a clear understanding of the main features of the site and the possible risks and sensitivities to the environment.
After carefully examining the scope of the AMDAL, uncertainty remains. However, this uncertainty is much more manageable. For example, when examining the scope of the AMDAL, it was found that no important archaeological features were recorded around the wider site.
The recommended next step is to conduct a geophysical survey of the site. Depending on the results of the investigation, it may be necessary to carry out an intrusive investigation in the form of excavation. You can even search for more information online about the phase 1 environment.
