LEGISLATION COMPLIANCE

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) came into force on the 6th April 2015. These regulations replaced the CDM Regulations 2007. 

To meet the new requirements of CDM 2015 we are able to offer clients CDM Consultant services and also act as Principal Designer for projects where we are acting as designers.  Our teams will continue to work with both in-house and external designers to ensure that design risk management is correctly undertaken and that risk on construction sites and in building maintenance is appropriately minimised.
