The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM) were introduced with effect from 6 April 2015. The Regulations impose duties upon all members of the construction team, including clients, designers, principal contractor and contractors, and also introduce the new role of Principal Designer.

The aim is to ensure that health and safety is improved by encouraging everyone involved to work together to improve the planning and management of projects from the very start through to completion of the works and even beyond to repair and maintenance.

Hookway is able to undertake the role of Principal Designer as required by the CDM Regulations. Our in depth knowledge of all aspects of the design and construction phase of building, together with our appreciation of health and safety matters and understanding of the CDM Regulations puts us in an excellent position to provide Principal Designer services.

Testimonial
