National CPD: Autumn 2018

CDM Procurement and Design

What will the session cover?
The CDM Procurement and Design session will cover the impact that the procurement route has on design risk management, the phasing of design work and some of the key issues that Principal Designers, CDM advisors and risk managers need to identify and control.

It will look at some of the typical procurement routes and some of the less common “fast track” routes in use (such as bill of quantities/specification & drawings), fast track (cost plus/open book) as well as design and build and negotiated alternatives.   

It will also cover of CDM documentation within the “contract set” and whether these documents need to vary depending on the procurement routes selected. 

What will you learn?
You will gain an overview of the options for procuring construction work to suit a range of projects, timescales and client drivers, and how these might impact on the workload of the Principal Designer.  

Conversely, the session will also be useful to those assisting clients with the procurement of civil works, gaining an understanding of what will be required from the Principal Designer, and when.
