Construction (Design & Management)

The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations (commonly referred to as the CDM Regs) provide a Health and Safety framework for all construction projects, and applies to the whole construction process from concept to completion.

What is Construction Design & Management (CDM)?

CDM influences and governs how a construction project is to be designed, constructed, maintained and ultimately demolished.

Legal duties are placed upon everyone involved in a construction project including the Client, Principal Designer, Designers, Principal Contractor and Contractors.

CDM applies to all building, civil engineering and engineering construction work. This includes new-build, alteration, maintenance, renovation, demolition, site clearance and site investigation.

Work involving more than one contractor require the appointment of a Principal Designer and Principal Contractor. A commercial client is deemed to be the Principal Designer and/or the Principal Contractor for any period during the Pre-construction/Construction Phase where these appointments have not been fulfilled.
