CDM Principal Designer

RDC Safety Limited adopts a comprehensive, all-inclusive approach to the role of principal designer and its accompanying legal requirement to reduce health and safety risk.

We are still available despite the ongoing situation with the pandemic. If you are unsure if we can help you please get in touch and we will do our best to assist.

All-inclusive approach

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015), came into force on 6 April 2015. The CDM regulations apply to all building and construction work and includes new build, demolition, refurbishment, extensions, conversions, repair, and maintenance.

Projects with more than one contractor must have a Principal Designer and a Principal Contractor appointed.

We understand that the role of the Principal Designer is a hugely important role in the process and is something that we undertake with the highest level of care. Our approach to the role as your Principal Designer is therefore both comprehensive and all-inclusive.
