The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) came into force on 6 April 2015, replacing CDM 2007. CDM 2015 now complies to all residential projects. Benison Associates are experienced in fulfilling the role of Principal Designer and providing guidance on the legal requirements for CDM 2015.
We provide CDM consultancy services for the whole construction process on all construction projects, from concept to completion. In addition we provide guidance regarding what each duty holder must, or should do, to comply with the law to ensure projects are carried out in a way that secures health and safety.
Our CDM 2015 Principal Designer service generally includes the reviewing of the pre-construction site information relating to any reports available or issued by the client and the provision of advice on any additional surveys or reports necessary to fulfil the requirements and duties under CDM 2015.
An initial site inspection would normally be carried out to risk assess the existing environment in relation to access and the impact of the development on neighbouring premises. We would also assess the impact of any activity close to the site location and draft/develop the pre-construction information pack ready for issue with Tender Documents if required.
