Bristol Bears Rugby Training Facility

We acted as independent CDM Advisor and Principal Designer for the new Bristol Bears Rugby Training Facility.

The new two-storey building will include new coaching, administration and player facilities. The development will provide a new state of the art gym with adjacent medical, strength and conditioning facilities, as well as an indoor training dome with 3G pitch.

The new building will benefit from a 270 degree vista over two new training pitches. The coach and executive offices will also incorporate a viewing balcony over the main pitch which doubles as a viewing deck for match analysis.

The £11 million project also involved extensive external work to the site entrance, surfacing repairs to the approach road, car parking, retaining walls. Access/link bridges and landscaping and drainage.

What makes our approach to CDM different?

We look to find solutions that allow our clients to achieve their ambitions, whilst enabling obligations to be met and consistently exceeding their expectations.  

As each project enters the construction phase, we comment and report on the adequacy of the construction phase plan. We assist in the notification to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and undertake site visits to check that arrangements identified in the construction phase plan are adhered to.  

Working collaboratively with both client, designers and contractors, we support all parties throughout the design stages from the evaluation of temporary works through to the permanent construction.  

From start to finish, we advise on, monitor and manage CDM compliance to ensure, so far as reasonably practicable, that each project is delivered smoothly and safely, providing the relevant documentation on completion.
