Project Description

Service Description

Safer Sphere was appointed the role of Principle Designer Advisor for the refurbishment of a Category A & B fit-out of the former Goodrich / UTC Aerospace facility, located in the main building to a distribution and storage warehouse.  The scope of services includes:

  • Working on a building with a fragile roof
  • Restrictions to the roof light glazing
  • Development of a safe cleaning, maintenance and plant replacement strategy
  • for this very technically demanding building project.

Service Challenges

Whilst the client and design team have led the design with best practice CDM principles, some of the key challenges included:-

  • Principal Designer Advisor services in line with CDM 2015
  • Assisting with H&S in designs, buildability and programme to reduce risk profiles
  • Assisting the Client in discharging their duties under CDM
  • Pre-Contract reviews with sub-contractors and packages.

 “Safer Sphere have been a breath of fresh air in dealing with the important CDM issues on some extremely complex schemes within a live working and construction environment. I would definitely recommend their work”
