CDM Principal Designer

Legislation regarding construction design and management is rarely updated but the service is often changing to accommodate the welfare for all persons on and impacted upon by works on a construction site. The current legislation, the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) came into force on 6 April 2015, replacing CDM 2007. CDM 2015 applies to the whole construction process on all construction projects, from concept to completion, to ensure all projects are carried out in a way that secures health, safety, and welfare.

Throughout our twenty-five years, we have assisted clients with site-related health and safety issues and have been qualified as Principal Designers since CDM was introduced in 2007.

Our surveyors are registered with the Association for Project Safety as well as RICS, and deliver a comprehensive package based on these practices to ensure health, safety and welfare is at the heart of your project.

Our services include:

  • Advising clients of their duties under the Regulations
  • Ensuring the planning and design stages include appropriate health and safety processes
  • Communicating with the whole project teams to achieve optimal co-ordination
  • Notifying the HSE as required with project details
  • Creating the pre-construction information pack for the Principal Contractor
  • Providing the Principal Contractor with the necessary information to progress the project
  • Collating and updating information for the Health and Safety File
  • Providing a Health and Safety File on completion of the project
  • Reviewing health and safety information for future work

Across the UK, and Northern Ireland where The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (NI) 2016 apply, we can undertake a dual role alongside our contract administration, project management or employer’s agent services, to keep costs low and most of all to protect all parties involved with or impacted upon by our construction project.
