CDM Advisory Services

CDM Co-ordinator Role

– to provide Client Advisory Services on projects under the Construction Design and Management Regulations, as an Incorporated Member of the Association of Project Safety.

Changes to Construction Design & Management Regulations

CDM regulations changed in April 2015 to CDM 2015, where the previous CDM Co-ordinator role disappeared and their duties were divided and absorbed by clients and designers. We are ideally placed to provide advice on fulfilling those duties. We have many years of experience of CDM on a wide range of projects from commercial and public work through to infrastructure and well known public monuments.
