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

“Hookway really understand schools – including their needs and the financial pressure that they are often under - and we have a long-standing and very positive working relationship with the company.”

“The new building has been open for over a year and teachers and pupils are still excited about it. It is so well designed in terms of light, space and ventilation that it is a joy to work in. The projecting roof at each end creates fantastic covered play space.”

“Hookway have been fantastic for us, they have prepared all of our bids and CIF has made huge difference to our buildings over recent years. ”
