Construction Design & Management 2015

Construction Design & Management 2015

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 have now taken effect. These will affect people that work on site as well as procurement professionals within the construction industry.

The changes to the regulations aim to:

  • Improve health and safety in the construction industry, particularly on smaller construction sites.
  • Cut back on red tape to reduce the admin burden on SMEs and make bidding for work more accessible.

Key changes to the regulations include:

  • Replacement of the CDM Co-ordinator (CDM-C) role with a Principal Designer responsible for health and safety in the design team.
  • Before work starts on site, the client is required to appoint a Principal Designer and Principal Contractor – while ensuring that these are able to demonstrate that they can deliver the project in a way that ensures health and safety best practice.
  • Client duties have been extended to cover domestic projects. These duties are normally transferred to the Principal Contractor.
  • A construction phase plan will be required for all projects.
  • The client must notify the HSE of any projects that are expected to last more than 30 working days (with more than 20 persons on site).

These regulations may increase the burden on some Buyer’s, ESP Ltd however by adopting Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP), have decreased the amount of admin we are required to do. This is because being members of an SSIP scheme we have already met the required health and safety criteria for stage one assessment, meaning that we will have more time to focus on project specific requirements.

As a part of the Constructionline, SMAS & Chas supplier assessment process, we have proved our health and safety management competency.

Edwards – HQ & Global Technology Centre

Edwards – HQ & Global Technology Centre

We were invited to tender and subsequently won the extension and renovation works within the Edwards Global Technology Centre, Burgess Hill. We have been heavily involved liaising with M&E designers, Suppliers & Client’s to provide an innovative solution to the lighting requirements. During the refurbishment and extension works the building was to remain occupied and in full production.
Electrical Services and Projects Ltd have worked closely with lighting manufacturers to provide solutions to difficult installation situations.
We worked sympathetically with the catering dept. during the enabling works to ensure the minimalist disruption to service. Upon completion of the temporary kitchen production was moved and work continued within the old kitchen area. There was no loss of kitchen facilities or production throughout the works.
Barriers were used to segregate working access routes between areas of works to protect both employees and clients.
Works included new distribution boards, small power, lighting, data, fire & security utilising metal tray, steel conduit, PVC dado trunking & LSF, FP200 and SWA cables.
ESP Ltd coordinated between the incumbent Fire and Intruder alarm contracted companies to ensure no loss in protection was received.
Throughout this ESP had strict lead times for the delivery of the project. The project was completed with much appraisal from both the client and the main contractor.
