CDM Services have been a legal requirement since the introduction of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations in 2007 and were recently updated via CDM 2015.

Any construction projects, whether domestic or non-domestic that are planned to last longer than 30 days (or 500 person days of work) or involve more than 20 workers simultaneously, must have what used to be called a CDM Coordinator now changed to Principal Designer. This Health & Safety role involves notifying the HSE via an F10 notification form and we are delighted to be performing this task for The Nomad Theatre, in East Horsley, Surrey.

The theatre’s name dates back to 1934 when performances were held in local halls and rehearsals took place in various different places – leading to the name, The Nomad Players.

Between 1957 and the mid 1990’s the society performed in a small theatre on the current site but with an increasing busy schedule and the addition of weekly children’s drama workshops, it was becoming obvious that the old theatre would need replacing. Plans were agreed and coincided with the appearance of the National Lottery. An early, successful application provided the opportunity to develop the theatre and all the facilities required for wide-ranging drama activities.  The result is a small theatre with a raked auditorium, fly tower, revolving stage and two trap doors.

[envira-gallery id=”9142″]This next development stage will see the removal of an existing 75 year old timber clad building and the construction of a new, 50% larger extension to provide an updated kitchen, bar, lounge and backstage facilities. Named The Greenroom Project, the theatre has secured donations of over £250,000, well on its way to the total project cost of £350,000. We have waived all our CDM Service fees for the project and if you would like to get involved there is a donations page on the theatre’s website  – The Greenroom Project

Chawton Hill we will be on hand throughout the 6 month project to help focus the attention of the whole development team on the health and safety aspects of the project including;  the planning, the project management and the early identification of hazards. Our aim is to integrate health and safety throughout the development team and to encourage everyone involved in the project to work together.

If you are planning a larger, non-domestic or domestic project, please enquire about our CDM services
