Following the changes to the CDM regulations in 2015 and the resulting increasing demand for CDM advice within the Process Engineering sector, HFL:CDM Ltd was established in July 2015 as a direct response to customer demand for CDM consultancy for process engineering projects in the chemical, petro-chemical and pharmaceutical sectors.

HFL:CDM Ltd’s Managing Director, Wayne Baxter, commented, “Our sister company, Haden Freeman Ltd, had provided Health & Safety advice to the process industries from its formation in 1984, including CDM specific support since the regulations were introduced in 2007. This included the provision of CDM Coordinator, a role in which we worked for a large number of our process industry clients, in addition to our expertise in HAZOP, HAZID and Functional Safety projects.”

“Following the changes to the regulations in 2015, however, and the resultant increasing demand for CDM advice and services within the process industries, HFL:CDM was set up for existing and new clients undertaking new build or expansion schemes to their production and processing plants. – a niche field requiring construction, engineering and H&S expertise and experience. This includes the provision of the all-important Principal Designer role.”

“Process Engineering projects differ from normal construction in several critical ways, foremost of which is the specialist knowledge of various engineering disciplines required to understand the total project – civil, structural, mechanical, chemical, electrical, control systems, instrumentation and safety engineering are involved in most process industry projects whereas normal construction projects require a less broad range.”

“However, where we might differ from other providers of such services, is that we are not just professional H&S providers but rather bring real, practical experience of large complex construction projects which enables us to dramatically reduce risk for our clients via tried and tested lean management principles. There are many firms offering resources which explain the new regulations but we are one of the few that has real multi-discipline expertise and experience to enable us to offer almost a ‘one-stop shop’ to both the process and construction industries.”
