Mr A. J. H. Davison has responded to Verulam S question regarding readers’ experience on the effectiveness of CDM. He writes from Arkley in Hertfordshire:
Congratulations, Chartered Engineers, we are, yet again, lying on our backs with our legs in the air having our tummies tickled by bureaucrats. By this, of course, I mean the latest CDM Regulations. I feel compelled to write to your column after spending half a day, at no extra renumeration on an already cut fee, complying with the latest documentation known as the ‘risk assessments’ and telling a contractor what any competent contractor should already be perfectly aware of.
