CDM 2015: your essential guide to Designer duties

You, as architects, are best placed to manage the health and safety risks of your designs on the construction workforce and must apply practical knowledge in design risk management. The speaker will aim to demystify the regulations and help you understand how to deliver your duties. CDM should be utilised as a collaborative tool, developing the design and construction process to enhance health and safety in the built environment, ensuring that we consider design implications through reductive steps. This forms an integral part of the review process; it is not a ‘bolt-on’ considered after design decisions have been made.

This seminar will illustrate how CDM can add coherency in the consideration of design implications, while also adopting a ‘practicable’ approach to risk. This will give you, as Designers, an appreciation of your obligations within CDM 2015 and provide guidance on how to critically examine your work, giving proportionate consideration to avoiding, reducing and controlling hazards.

This seminar will cover:

  • Background to the passing of the CDM legislation and it’s development to today
  • Other relevant construction legislation of which you should be aware
  • The CDM process timeline on projects
  • CDM 2015 Duty Holders and their obligations
  • CDM as a creative and collaborative process
  • CDM as the management of risk, rather than of health and safety
  • Considering the hierarchy of risk
  • The differences between ‘safety’ and ‘health’
  • The definition of ‘Designer’ as described under CDM2015
  • Understanding the Designer’s duties with regard to hazard and risk
  • Practical guidance in the understanding of hazards to consider in the design process

Speaker Peter Waxman, Multiplex CDM

Core Curriculum Topics

Fire safety for Designers Post-Grenfell

Since the introduction of CDM 2015, architects have welcomed the role of the Principal Designer and integrated health and safety into architectural design; in a similar way, so too can fire safety design be embedded. By working with other specialists in the industry such as the fire brigade, suitable methods of fire safety can be developed, which meet the recommendations of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety and create a protocol for the industry to deliver fire safety in all types of buildings.

The Building Regulations Approved Documents Part B include sound guidance but have become an over-complicated, semi-prescriptive, quasi-interpretive set of documents with too many options and alternatives. They are set out in an order that does not reflect the design process and are infamously difficult to follow without a clear and easily recorded statement of completion or compliance.

This seminar will introduce the RIBA Plan of Work for Fire Safety and demonstrate methods of producing suitable fire strategy drawings, fire specifications, schedules of fire resisting and stopping components and materials, management tools to ensure these are delivered on site and records of these issues for the Fire and Emergency File at hand-over. The industry must now show leadership to ensure fire safety in all our buildings and these are the first industry-changing steps.

Speaker Paul Bussey, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris

Core Curriculum Topics

  1. Legal, regulatory and statutory compliance
  2. Health, safety and well being

Project management: delivery high quality outcomes

Project management is a key skill for delivering successful, quality outcomes on projects. This seminar will provide an overview of key project management principles and processes from the initiation of the project, through to completion and use. It will cover the phases, scope and capturing expectations, scheduling the programme and proactively managing risks and change. Critical elements such as communication and interacting with the team and individuals will also be covered and tools and techniques and useful documents for managing the project will be outlined.

The seminar will provide awareness of key project management competencies linked to the APM Body of Knowledge with reference to Quality Management, the RIBA Quality Tracker and the Plan of Work.

Learning outcomes will include:

  • Increased understanding of projects, their lifecycle, processes, key terminology and the architect/project manager role
  • Awareness of the key considerations in setting up projects to incorporate best practice processes to ensure the client brief/project scope, design and outcome are aligned
  • Awareness of change control and risk management processes in order that change is adequately evaluated and managed; with risks including those relating to cost, approvals, safety etc. mitigated
  • Principles of managing quality from the outset and tips to ensure this is not compromised
  • Knowledge of key documents for managing projects and tailoring approach to the project scale and complexity
  • Awareness of further project management learning needs and options
