CDM Principal Designers

The latest Construction Design & Management Regulations 2015 extend the reach of the original Regulations so that they now apply to domestic contractors as well as those larger ones which have always had to comply.

The new role of Principal Designer replaces the existing CDM Co-ordinator and is expected to be appointed by the client. The idea is to bring Risk Management into the design process from the beginning and to see it through to the end, including eventual demolition when necessary.

There are other pressures, too. Like appointing a Principal Contractor who has a wide range of duties to perform, not least being competent in health and safety and having to prepare a health and safety file at the end of the project.

And F10 notification criteria have been changed to bring smaller projects in – again putting demands on contractors.
