CDM Consultancy Beckenham
Construction, design and management services.
Looking for a CDM Consultancy Beckenham? W M Barker & Son Ltd, have been implementing CDM Consultancy services since the commencement of the initial CDM Regulations in 1995.With over 30 years’ expertise in construction health and safety, we continue to render CDM consultancy services to the construction trade. We can help with sustaining client’s designers and contractor health and safety requirements.
The current variant of the regulations, CDM2015, came into force on 6th April 2015 and are the 3rd iteration of the rules. These regulations strengthen previous UK construction health and safety measures ensuring that health and safety issues are appropriately acknowledged throughout a project’s development.
So that the risk of injury to those who must build, use and maintain structures is lessened. The Regulations dictate that a “Principal Designer” needs to be appointed where greater than one contractor will be operating on a project at any one time.
Domestic clients are no longer excluded, with the duties falling to the contractor or Principal Contractor where more than one is present on site. These duties can be assigned to the Principal Designer (where appropriate) or to the Principal Contractor).
Our extensive CDM consultancy services build on our numerous years’ background of the CDM Regulations in their multiple guises (Planning Supervisor > CDM Co-ordinator > Principal Designer) following 1995.
CDM2015 necessitates a designer to tackle the PD (Principal Designer) job for health and safety on projects.
We offer a complete Principal Designer service for lead-consultants or other designers designated to a Principal Designer role (CDM-PD) by a customer. This service gives expert guidance and direction on the CDM2015 statutes to ensure the PD can offer project health and safety duties efficiently. Our package of ‘essential’ CDM-PD services incorporates:
We can ‘intensify’ our service throughout the project:
After the project, we can likewise arrange the Health and safety file for the project.
Suppose you are appointed as ‘Principal Designer’ (PD) by a client. In that case, you will be expected to undertake most of the duties currently administered by the CDM Coordinator.
Suppose you are a design practice that does not have the necessary in-house capabilities to accomplish the CDM/H&S viewpoints of the new Principal Designer role. In that case, we can provide a CDM consultancy service to fulfil this role on your account as part of your organisation.
For residential clients where no Principal Designer is elected, you will be expected to assume the responsibilities of the PD (including PCI and HSF).
You will require a Construction phase plan for ALL projects where you use different contractors, irrespective of project scope or duration.
Our CDM advisors can help with the formation of these plans on all sizes of construction projects. Our CDM portal system is another valuable tool for contractors.
It recognises if a project is notifiable or not and leads the contractor through the appropriate process so that all related property information is produced (Asbestos, H&S File etc.) and ensures critical risks are recognised, adequate control actions are in place. That suitable documentation is organised for each project also.
We can provide a CDM Portal for our customers. This is a web-based system specially produced to ensure CDM compliance on construction projects. The advantages of the CDM Portal incorporate:
The CDM Portal names, before start on-site, what relevant H&S File information is anticipated to be produced, who will implement the information and, after the project, provides a simple system to collate it all.
Once collated this information is instantly uploaded and ready within the CDM Portal giving access to all those who may require this.
Whether you are a Customer, Contractor, Architect, Designer or Contract Administrator etc. our CDM Portal solution can support you to satisfy your H&S obligations in an orderly, simple, cost-effective way.
Following the debut of CDM in 1995, we have formed efficient and practical means of collating pre-construction information to be given to the Contractor.
In collating this data, we can work with design teams and different project stakeholders to produce a ‘hazard register’ which is refreshed as the project proceeds. This is the HSE-preferred process of identifying and coping with hazards. It provides a practical record which permits us to bestow our pre-construction information clearly and succinctly.
For smaller projects, we propose a ‘small works plan’ CDM portal. This is a frequently overlooked feature added in the CDM2007 regulations, where clients now have duties to ensure contractors’ orders are in place before the contractor starting on site.
Under CDM2105, this is particularly relevant where coordination is needed if more than one contractor is on site. We propose a cost-effective and candid system for dealing with these projects, and this has shown to be very helpful and popular with clients.
Our broad expertise of construction health and safety signifies we can offer clients health and safety consultancy guidance, leadership and systems for efficient management of health and safety and compliance with ordinances.
