Principal Designer CDM Services:

Our Approach to CDM

Whether large or small, projects depend on the key appointment of the Principal Designer to help ensure Health and Safety legal requirements under the CDM Construction Design and Management Regulations (2015) are met.

We believe that all successful and safe projects start with effective, hands-on management of design risk. We are here to help you with all your CDM Principal Designer requirements.

Working closely with a range of architects, designers and engineers during the pre-construction phase of projects is the key to the planning, management and monitoring of this vitally important phase of all projects.

We continue to provide high-level Principal Designer services across a diverse spectrum of project environments with an impressive list of clients.
