Due Diligence

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.


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.

Early Stage Investigations

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:

  • Asbestos
  • Contaminated Land
  • Unstable Structures
  • Unexploded Ordnance (UXO)
  • Above & below ground service
  • Unsafe working conditions
  • Vermin

At WDP 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.

We will provide you with a quality competitive service that will enable you to comply with your CDM duties with confidence and ensure you are CDM compliant.

If you require advice or more information please call WDP on 01752 309 844 / 01305 542 022
