This CIOB Continuous Professional Development (CPD) event was organised by Briony Milton (Member Services and Events Coordinator – Dorking) on 24 October 2017 in the Cockcroft Building. Dr Terry Quarmby gave a fascinating presentation on the often misunderstood construction sector of demolition. The event was facilitated on behalf of the university by Dr Hannah Wood. The presentation was well-attended and enjoyed by industry practitioners, academics and students.
“CDM (Construction Design and Management) Regulations don’t just apply to the building of structures – they also apply to their demolition. So if you’re working on a project that involves demolition works, you not only need to understand the usual CDM requirements, but also those specific to demolition or dismantling.” – CIOB
