are effectively all other clients and are expected to comply fully with the regulations and in particular to fulfil their duties.
On all projects there is a requirement for a construction phase health and safety plan and welfare facilities to be in place before work commences and this is generally prepared by the only contractor or the Principal Contractor.
Where more than one contractor is employed on a project, the client must ensure a Principal Designer and Principal Contractor are employed. This applies to both domestic clients and commercial clients.
We appreciate it can be daunting for some clients implementing CDM2015. We believe that if projects are being carried out properly and professionally then the regulations shouldn’t place any unnecessary burdens on any project and most certainly shouldn’t be a ‘paperwork exercise’ to demonstrate compliance.
Ashwood Design Associates Ltd can act as Principal Designer on your project and can act as a CDM Advisor to those clients who are unsure of the requirements of the regulations or those who want to ensure their appointed dutyholders are fulfilling their duties. Please contact us for more information and for confirmation of our own skills, knowledge and experience.
