Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, the previous role of CDM co-ordinator has been replaced with Principal Designer. All construction projects must comply with the requirements of the CDM Act including the appointment of a Principal Contractor and Principal Designer and certain projects must be notified to the HSE.
The Principal Designer has the responsibility for managing the health, safety and welfare of projects from pre-construction to ongoing design.
Torside Building Consultants has experience on a wide variety of construction projects, from small refurbishments to high value complex schemes.
Torside Building Consultants has the expertise to fulfil the role of Principal Designer. We are also able to advise clients to ensure full compliance with the legislation and ensure that the Health and Safety is well managed on all construction projects. The CDM regulations 2015 also apply to domestic projects which were previously exempt.
