The CDM Regulations cover the management of health, safety and welfare when carrying out construction projects. These regulations have been in place since 1994, were updated in 2007, and on 6 April 2015, the CDM Regulations 2015 were introduced.
Under the CDM Regulations 2007 for notifiable projects the client would have been required to appoint a CDM Coordinator. This role has now been removed and the new role of Principal Designer has been introduced. The client is required to appoint both a Principal Designer and a Principal Contractor when more than one contractor is appointed to work on a construction project.
The CDM Regulations place significant duties on the Client, Principal Designer, Designers, Principal Contractor and Contractors. Our CDM Advisors are able to advise you on the application of the CDM Regulations including management of the duties that fall to the Client.
We are also able to offer the service of Principal Designer either as an expansion of our role as Lead Designer or through the use of one of our trained CDM Principal Designers. Through this role we will manage health and safety relating to the pre-construction phase of the project, and place a strong focus on the management of design risk.
Our skills, knowledge and experience covers various sectors, construction methods and building types.
We have standard systems and documentation in place to support our services and have prepared training seminars for clients and others to ensure that you aware of the requirements.
