The Institute of Construction Management

 ─ Viewpoint & Newsletter ─ 

 ─ January 2020 ─ 

Dear {name},

The President and Executive Board send you our best wishes for the New Year ...

... this latest edition of our ICM online newsletter, the first of 2020 ... bringing you some points of important interest and points of view from around the sector ...


The ICM is a true grass-roots member led professional body with an open door policy that embraces all professional disciplines across the construction and property sectors ... 

In the UK the culture of Construction Management is embodied in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order ... that culture is failing the innocent folk who use the property and have no option but to rely upon the competence of designers, constructors, and the actions of property owners/managers to keep them safe!

In 2018 the ICM Executive Board took a bold transformational decision to lead into an industry movement and join in collaboration with other bodies to stem the race to the bottom and improve safety and quality ─ launched the National CDM Competence Registry™® ─ through 2019 explored and developed the strategy and collaborative links to move into 2020 with an exciting forward plan ─ and, a bold plan indeed! ...

Six Seconds Separation!

the story of how a near miss at the interface of two hazardous sectors very nearly became a major disaster with great loss of life ─ only six seconds of separation!

Part 1 of a 2-part article published in Rail Professional ─ where David Jones ICM Director 0f Education & Training first explains the incompetence in those six seconds! and through the series will discuss the journey from unconsciously incompetent passing through realisation of consciously incompetent enough to gain skills, knowledge and experience to become consciously competent to practice and become culturally unconsciously competent to be trusted to keep all safe and well!
