    How much would we expect to pay for CDM client side for a £1.5m project, all this is is a paper exercise, coordinating and setting the scene. The contractor will clearly need to spend a lot of time and money on H & S.

    Work on about 0.5% for the circa £1m - £1.5m size of project

    If I get a quote for £500 plus costs for site visits then it would be good, too cheap or to be avoided?

    Sounds too cheap to me - but depends on the building (ie how complex is it in terms of developing the pre construction ESH plan)

    Mmmmm - the process of pick and mix recycling combined with construction safety isn't a good idea - in fact the ACoP specifically warns against the practice.

    Keep in mind the client has a duty to employ competent persons, and in particular the CDM-C has, as a minimum, the obligations for:

    1.To give suitable and sufficient advice to clients to allow the client to compete their own duties under the CDM regulations;
    2.Advise the client about selecting designers and contractors;
    3.Help identify what information will be needed by contractors and designers (develop the pre-construction information pack), and advise the client if surveys need to be commissioned to fill significant gaps;
    4.Coordinate the arrangements for health and safety of planning and other preparation for construction where relevant to health and safety;
    5.Notify the HSE of the work (via the F10 form);
    6.Advise on the suitability of the construction phase plan developed by the principal contractor;
    7.Prepare a health and safety file for the client (for safe future use, cleaning, maintenance and alterations of the building).

    I'd not be doing that lot for £500 notes - or in effect for about 1 days worth of effort

    Regards

    My company do carry out CDM work, and for a project like that, then £1000 to £1500 would be a good starting point
