Under CDM, as the client of a construction project, you are ultimately responsible for the Health and Safety of the consultants and contractors you appoint.
Carrying out Due Diligence will ensure you are appointing the right people, to construct the right building, on the right site.
At Wills Design we can assist you by conducting a site inspection and advising you of any risk or hazards that should be communicated to the team.
This inspection can also be carried out before the site/structure is purchased, to help you better understand the potential risks and costs involved.
If you require early stage investigation or surveys, you have a duty to provide information on the condition of the site or building, along with any risks and hazards. Typically these include:
- Contaminated Land
- Unstable Structures
- Unexploded Ordnance (UXO)
- Above & below ground service
- Unsafe working conditions
You must ensure that any consultants or contractors have the required knowledge, skill and resources to carry out the project, along with defining how the project will be managed.
At WPD we will work with you to review potential consultants and contractors, advise you on their competency and make recommendations for further action where required.
