Services - CDM Co-ordinators
The Construction Design and Management Regulations 2007 (CDM) impose legal duties on all clients procuring or carrying out demolition, alteration, extension or new build projects on property that is not their domestic residence.
Our systems, updated to CDM 2007, follow Association of Project Safety guidelines and are designed to coordinate and constructively provide the right level of health and safety input on each project.
Gaskell will advise and guide you on all CDM compliance issues and recommend a course of action that satisfies the CDM regulations and ensure that the time and effort devoted to planning health and safety on a project is in proportion to its risk and complexity.
On larger project, those lasting more than 30 working days or where 500 person days of construction work may be involved, the client has a legal duty to appoint an appropriately qualified, experienced and resourced CDM Co-ordinator.
The CDM Coordinator will advise and assist the client to achieve CDM compliance. The regulations require these duties are undertaken from the very first conceptual stage of a project. Proactively driven CDM risk assessment and pre-project risk profiles can be of considerable assistance to the client and his design team in improving health and safety standards, reducing delays, improving quality and programme performance standards.
As an experienced chartered construction professional, the Gaskell CDM Coordinator’s role includes ensuring good communications are maintained between designers and making sure that preconstruction information is available to the project team and contractors. Responsibility also includes notification of the HSE and preparation of the mandatory project Health and Safety file.
