Principal Designer / CDM Adviser

We have a qualified team of CDM experts who can advise you on the CDM regulations.

Our Principal Designers and CDM advisers ensure that the Client, designers and principal contractors are fully aware of their duties and responsibilities under the regulations. We safeguard so that arrangements are in place for the management of the construction project and coordinate the work and flow of health and safety information.

Why do you need a CDM 2015 Client Adviser on your build?

The Client
The main responsibilities for Construction Clients are to ensure all construction projects are suitably resourced and managed, and the health and safety of all who may be affected by the work, use and maintenance of the structure are protected through means of adequate communications, cooperation and coordination, and the provision of relevant information.

That’s where we come in, making sure the CDM 2015 regulations which impose greater responsibility on Construction Clients regarding health and safety are delivered. The Regulations introduce several duties and responsibilities that were not previously required of Construction Clients

“My experience working with Tom Branagh in the Principal Designer and Client CDM advisers roles, demonstrated a depth of CDM understanding, clear communication with a focus on risk reduction throughout the design and construction phases, delivered through a highly responsive service.”

Parminder Birring, Environmental Health & Safety Manager at HB Reavis

The Legislation
It is the Clients duty to ensure the Principal Designer and Principal Contractor are fully discharging their respective duties which can be delivered via site monitoring visits and audits, and the review of project risk management documentation.

Clients often require advice and assistance from a third party (that’s us!) to assist with the discharge of their duties. At Hunters we have the skills, knowledge and experience spanning the previous 1994 and 2007 CDM Regulations and since the 2015 Regulations, we are ideally placed to advise and assist Clients with discharging their duties.
