About Us

Goddard Consulting are the leading firm of specialist CDM Consultants. We were established in 1995 and have now completed over 4000 projects. We provide standalone Principal Designer services, and a consultancy services to aid both Clients and Principal Designers in fulfilling their duties under the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015.

All of our Partners are individual members of the Association for Project Safety (APS), and Goddard Consulting LLP is an APS Registered Practice as Principal Designer, Consultants to Principal Designers and as CDM Advisers to Clients. We are also included on Constructionline: the Government’s approved list of qualified construction service providers.

Unlike many companies who offer CDM Consultancy services, Goddard Consulting are a specialist firm focusing on providing up-to-date and pragmatic advice.  We see our role as one of catalyst, ensuring that risks which can be affected by design are identified, effectively assessed and where practicable controlled.  Our skill lies in meeting the necessary statutory requirements effectively, yet minimising bureaucracy and unnecessary paperwork.  We adopt an integrated team structure which gives us the ability to group our resources and experience around large scale and more complex commissions.

In an industry beset by technical language and terminology, we ensure that our communication is clear and comprehensible.  Due to our commitment to continuous professional development, and having had experience working on a myriad of construction projects, we are not only able to understand the intricacies of each project that we take on, but explain in plain English how the CDM Regulations will affect it.

We believe in forming and maintaining close relationships with our clients through regular communication.  This, together with having the necessary systems in place, ensures that we are able to give the right information, to the right people, at the right time – the key to effective management under CDM.
