CDM Compliance Services
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, also known as CDM Regulations or CDM 2015, which came into force on 6 April 2015, are regulations governing the way construction projects of all sizes and types are planned. CDM 2015 is the latest update to the regulations that aim to improve the overall health, safety and welfare of those working in construction. The regulations define what construction works are and everyone who have health & safety duties during the planning and construction of a project, including home maintenance and improvement works.

Short video to explain CDM Regulations 2015:
Principal Contractors (PC):
A principal contractor is the contractor with control over the construction phase of a project involving more than one contractor. They are appointed in writing by the client (commercial or domestic) to plan, manage, monitor and coordinate health and safety during this phase.
If the appointed Principal Contractor hasn’t got the time or the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to fulfil their duties under CDM Regulations 2015, then we can help with:
- Collecting all Pre Construction Information (existing H&S File, Asbestos Surveys, Service Drawings etc)
- Prepare a Construction Phase Plan that can also include:
- Site Setup Plan
- Traffic Management Plan
- Welfare Arrangements
