Our Work


The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, often referred to as CDM Regulations, are a set of regulations governing the way construction projects of all sizes and types are planned in the UK.

With health and safety at their core, these regulations aim to improve planning and management of projects from the very start. They cover the management of health, safety and welfare when carrying out construction projects. Under the regulations, responsibilities are assigned to duty holders who can influence the construction process, including clients, designers and contractors.
A CDM (Construction Design and Management) Advisor is a professional who provides advice and guidance to ensure compliance with the UK’s CDM Regulations 2015. The advisor plays a crucial role in managing health and safety risks during the construction project.
Whether you need a CDM Advisor depends on the complexity and size of your construction project. If your project is complex or large, having a CDM Advisor can help ensure that you comply with all relevant health and safety regulations. A CDM Advisor can also be beneficial if you do not have the in-house expertise to manage health and safety risks effectively.
Yes, all construction work in the UK needs to comply with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM). This includes commercial and domestic building projects of all sizes, from small repairs to large scale developments. The regulations apply to every stage of a project, from initial concept and design, through to the construction phase, and even to the eventual demolition and disposal. Different duties and requirements apply depending on the size and nature of the project and the roles of those involved.

CDM responsibilities refer to the duties designated to various roles under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 in the UK. These responsibilities aim to ensure health and safety in construction projects. Here’s a brief overview:

  • Clients: They are responsible for making sure all construction work is carried out, so far as reasonably practicable, without risk to the health or safety of any person affected by the project.
  • Designers: Their role includes eliminating, reducing or controlling foreseeable risks that may arise during construction work, or in the use and maintenance of the building once built.
  • Principal Designers: They plan, manage, monitor and coordinate health and safety during the pre-construction phase of a project involving more than one contractor.
  • Principal Contractors: They plan, manage, monitor and coordinate health and safety during the construction phase of a project involving more than one contractor.
  • Contractors: Those who carry out the actual construction work. They have to cooperate with the client, principal designer and principal contractor, planning, managing and monitoring their own work and that of their workers.

The specific duties vary depending on the role and the size and complexity of the project. The ultimate goal of these responsibilities is to ensure a safe and healthy construction site.

CDM (Construction Design and Management) risks refer to potential hazards that could arise in a construction project. Here are some examples:

  1. Falls from Height: This is one of the most common risks in construction. It includes falls from ladders, roofs, scaffolding, or any elevated work area.
  2. Collapses: The risk of building structures or trenches collapsing during construction can cause serious injury or death to workers.
  3. Exposure to Harmful Substances: Construction sites often involve the use of hazardous materials. If not handled correctly, these substances can lead to health issues like respiratory problems, skin irritation, and poisoning.
  4. Moving Objects: Construction sites are dynamic environments with vehicles and heavy machinery in operation. There’s a risk of injury from moving objects, including being struck by a vehicle or caught between moving and stationary objects.
  5. Electricity: Electrical installations and equipment can pose a significant risk if not installed and maintained properly. Risks include electric shock, burns, and fires.
  6. Noise and Vibration: Prolonged exposure to high levels of noise and vibration from machinery and tools can lead to hearing loss, tinnitus, and hand-arm vibration syndrome.
  7. Manual Handling: Injuries can occur from lifting, carrying, pushing, or pulling heavy objects.
  8. Slips, Trips and Falls: Uneven surfaces, wet floors, and obstructions can cause workers to slip, trip, or fall.
  9. Working in Confined Spaces: Confined spaces can pose risks of suffocation, poisoning, fires, and explosions.
  10. Asbestos Exposure: If a construction project involves older buildings, there might be a risk of asbestos exposure, which can lead to serious lung diseases.

The aim of CDM regulations is to identify these risks at the earliest stages of a project and manage them throughout its lifecycle.

The CDM 2015 regulation introduced several changes compared to the previous CDM 2007 regulation. Key differences include:

  1. Replacement of CDM Coordinator Role: The role of the CDM Coordinator was replaced with a Principal Designer. This change was made to integrate health and safety into the earlier stages of project design.
  2. Changes for Domestic Clients: CDM 2015 extended its scope to include domestic clients. Although the duties of domestic clients are usually transferred to the contractor or principal contractor, this change means that all projects, including those for domestic clients, fall under CDM regulations.
  3. Health and Safety File: The Principal Designer is responsible for preparing the Health and Safety file, a document that contains relevant health and safety information for future construction work.
  4. Construction Phase Plan: Every construction project, no matter how small, must now have a written Construction Phase Plan.

The CDM 2015 regulation aims to improve health and safety in the industry by embedding it more deeply into every stage of a project.
