Speaker: James Woolgrove, Director, Woolgrove Associates Ltd, Carnforth

James has many years of experience in helping Clients and Designers comply with the requirements of the CDM Regulations for small and medium building projects and when renovating historic buildings. He believes that pre-project planning and user/builder-friendly project designs are the cornerstone of successful building project management.

His presentation covered the following topics:

  • An overview of the main aims, definitions and requirements of the CDM 2015 Regulations.
  • Project planning – theoretical, Client’s expectations and the reality.
  • HSE’s CDM priorities.
  • Information needed for CDM project planning – what is needed? How should it be gathered and shared.
  • Use of new technologies at the design stage of a construction project.
