Sysmax and the Institute of Construction Management forge digital innovation in building competence registers through pioneering new partnership
We are excited to announce a pioneering partnership with the Institute of Construction Management (ICM) to bring digital innovation to the ICM Competence Register Trilogy. This transformative collaboration builds upon both brands’ rich legacy of promoting competence within, among others, the construction industry. Sysmax CEO Peter McAteer and David Jones, ICM Director, are both well known for their passion and leadership on competency, compliance and risk management. The new collaboration will build on the obvious synergies.
David Jones comments: “The ICM has a rich legacy of innovation in construction safety including the landmark launch of a National CDM Competence Registry in 2018 which laid the foundation for the ICM’s commitment to recognising and fostering competence within the construction industry, setting high standards for safety and quality. We are thrilled to partner with Sysmax on this transformative journey. ICM’s legacy in competency recognition, coupled with Sysmax’s technological prowess, will reshape the way professionals in the construction industry showcase their expertise and collaborate.”
Peter McAteer adds: “The partnership between Sysmax and the ICM marks the next phase in this legacy of excellence. Beginning with the Principal Designer Register, Sysmax will employ our technological expertise and cutting-edge, user-friendly platform for professionals to showcase their competencies, connect with peers, and access critical industry resources. This digital innovation will extend to the Principal Contractor and Building Safety Manager registers, culminating in a trilogy of digital solutions that promise to streamline competence validation, foster collaboration, and elevate safety and quality standards within the construction industry.
“We are in a landscape which recognises that even though we’re five years on from the Hackitt Report and progress has been made, we still have a long way to go. The social building supply chain is under scrutiny now more than ever thanks to the Building Safety Act (BSA) which came into effect on the 1st of April 2023 and will have full implementation by October 2023. As the construction industry continues to evolve, the partnership between Sysmax and ICM represents a monumental leap forward in promoting excellence, inclusivity, and safety within the sector.”
