Principal Designer

Principal Designer / Principal Designer Advisor

Clients are required under CDM2015 (Regulation 5) to appoint a designer who has control over the pre-construction phase of a project as Principal Designer, where it is likely that there will be more than one contractor working on the project at any time.

CDM Services undertake the role of Principal Designer for Clients and also Principal Designer ‘Advisor’ services to Designers who may not have the necessary competences or resources to plan, manage and monitor the health and safety aspects of design.

Our registered competent CDM consultants have in-depth knowledge of the CDM 2015 Regulations to manage the design and construction of projects.

Our consultants are all registered members of the Association of Project Safety (APS) and have passed the APS examination in CDM 2015 knowledge and experience. .

Client CDM advisor

The changes to the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 [CDM 2015] put a greater onus on Clients to address health and safety within their projects. CDM 2015 makes the client more accountable for the impact their decisions and approach have on health, safety and welfare on the project.
Although the Client’s duties may seem to be more onerous, CDM Services will provide the advice and level of service to assist the client to produce a project that is delivered successfully, with health and safety being an intrinsic part of that success.
