CDM Changes Could Mean Losing Work

Posted by Sally on February 26, 2015

From April 6th the role of CDM Co-ordinator dissolves. This is basically to help simplify processes and reduce bureaucracy.

But there is a catch: CDM will still exist and become the responsibility of commercial clients to nominate a Principal Designer to undertake CDM duties pre-construction.

This means the responsibility is likely to fall on the architect within the project.

There's more: all projects now fall under CDM whether notifiable or not; all projects will need a nominated CDM "expert"; and these projects now include maintenance and domestic projects.

All of this means there's a risk our clients will lose work if they can't deliver the Principal Designer service.

They will need a suitably qualified expert, which is where we can help.

At Hunters we have a team of CDM advisers who can guide our clients through the changes, support them in their Principal Designer role, and enable a clean transition for their companies throughout.

If you're interested in speaking to us about the changes to CDM please contact our CDM Co-ordinator Tom Hanley on 020 8237 8200.
