CDM Consultants London & Home Counties
Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015
Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 “CDM 2015” if you are intending to carry out any construction works then you need to comply with these regulations. This includes works such as refurbishment, demolition, extension, redecoration, maintenance or general upkeep of a structure.
Within these regulations there are dutyholders of Client, Principal Designer, Designer, Principal Contractor and Contractor.
The Client is person in charge of the project and can be a business or an individual. Arun Associates can act as Client CDM advisor to assist the Client team with their duties.
Under CDM 2015 Client duties include:
Where the Client is a “Domestic Client” (they live in the premises where works will be undertaken) are excused most duties and these should be carried out by the Designer, Principal Contractor or Contractor.
A Principal Designer, (PD) is only required where a project has more than one contractor at any one time. Arun Associates can offer to undertake the role of Principal Designer or Principal Designer Advisor (to other design team members).
As part of our services we can also offer to undertake construction site health and safety reviews either as an independent one-off audit or a regular planned inspection regime.
Arun Associates, CDM Consultants London and Home Counties have been established around twenty years, and have seen important changes to the CDM Regulations as they have been revised over time. Clients still have a duty to ensure their project team and contractors are competent, and are able to effectively apply the relevant parts of the regulations, to carry the works out safely.
We can help you with this process.
For additional details, the Health and Safety Executive has a section on their website specifically relating to CDM regulations: http://www.hse.gov.uk/construction/cdm/2015/index.htm
