  1. I am currently a Construction Inspector without a specific design qualification. However previously I have been empolyed as a Building Surveyor doing design work where I was also engaged as a Planning Supervisor, in my present post I have been engaged as a CDMc. I am MCIOB, FICWCI and NEBOSH qualified What appropriate design qualification should I accquire in order to enhance my (SKET) status and ensure a role in the PD arena please?

  2. The list of qualifications that you have provided suggests that your primary experience is in the construction phase rather than working within the core design team. The role that you could play therefore in CDM2015 will be directed by the method of project procurement that is taken by the Client. You would be out of place on a traditional route, pure design, but well placed on a Contract Management project, with greater emphasis on contractor input. CDM 2015 is in my view very wide in scope such that the most skilled and qualified person cannot be SKET on every project in such a wide industry, over time I see that sector specific experts/companies will emerge with targeted SKET for that element of the market.
