The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015

The Health & Safety Executive introduced the “Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015”

(CDM) in April of that year.  These new regulations mean that virtually everyone involved in a construction

project including domestic clients and principle contractors now have legal duties under CDM 2015.

As a client appointing or entering into a contract with a building contractor (anyone who has

construction work carried out for them) has a responsibility to make sure their project is suitably

managed to ensure the health and safety of all who might be affected by the work, including members

of the public.  More information can be found on the government Health and Safety Executive’s website

by following the link below.

In response to this legislation we will include relevant health and safety information with all

building regulations designs and other supporting documentation.

At this stage, we are not entering into written agreements to undertake the ‘Principle Designer’s role’ in

the context of CDM 2015 and assume that the production and implementation of the Construction

Phase Health & Safety Plan will be undertaken by the appointed Principle Contractor.
