Changes to the construction design & management regulations & rin associates ltd merging with inspired partnership ltd

As you may be aware the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations have recently gone through a Governmental review process and the new CDM 2015 Regulations have now been established and taken effect from 6 April 2015.

Up until now you may have on occasion appointed our sister company RiN Associates Ltd to provide the CDM-C role as laid out in the CDM 2007 Regulations and our Safety Advisor, Jon Sawyer has provided this service for you. The new CDM 2015 Regulations abolish the old CDM-Coordinator role and in its place a new role of Principal Designer has been established to oversee compliance with the new 2015 regulations.

The commencement of the new CDM regulations co-insides with Jon Sawyer's decision to retire, so we have recently appointed a replacement for Jon, namely Mark Gent who will be working alongside Jon during the forthcoming hand over stage, which will include Mark undertaking some external training and then assuming Jon's role when Jon leaves the company at the end of August 2015. Until joining IPL, Mark was a Senior Sergeant of Her Majesty Coldstream Guards, where he was responsible for managing the day to day activities, along with the Health, Safety and Welfare of personnel under this command whilst both home and abroad, often in complex and demanding situations. In his 16 years of duty, Mark has amassed extensive experience in all aspects of Health and Safety, including tours of Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan. With the combination of the change in the CDM regulations and Jon retiring we have decided to move the CDM and Health & Safety function undertaken by RiN Associates Ltd into Inspired Partnership Ltd (IPL) as a new CDM consultants and Health & Safety Department, which will be overseen by Julian Ball who is a Director of IPL and Registered Member of the APS. RiN Associates will complete any current appointments and the aim will be to cease trading RiN Associates at the end of the year.

In effect this process actually commenced last year as Inspired Partnership Ltd has been undertaking the CDM-C role for a number of existing clients and we have recently received new appointments to undertake the Principal Designer role on several projects for Butlins, which is part of the Bourne Leisure Group, at both their Minehead and Bognor Regis Resorts and also on several School projects in the South West.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for employing the services of RiN Associates Ltd in the past and we look forward to continuing our association under the Inspired Partnership Ltd umbrella. Should you have any queries regarding either the transition of RiN Associates Ltd or the CDM 2015 Regulations please feel free to contact Jon, Mark or Julian. We would be grateful if you would please direct any future enquiries to Inspired Partnership Ltd at the same postal address for RiN in Taunton and Telephone/email contact details are as follows:
