Over 14 years of experience in CDM regulation

Skills, knowledge, experience

Walker Wood are experienced CDM Principal Designers. This means we have the necessary skills, knowledge, experience and organisational capability required by the Construction, Design and Management Regulations to assist and advise clients with their duties under the Regulations on projects which are notifiable to the Health & Safety Executive. 

HSE stipulates that Principal Designers must:

  • Plan, manage, monitor and coordinate health and safety in the pre-construction phase. In doing so they must take account of relevant information (such as an existing health and safety file) that might affect design work carried out both before and after the construction phase has started.
  • Help and advise the client in bringing together pre-construction information, and provide the information designers and contractors need to carry out their duties.
  • Work with any other designers on the project to eliminate foreseeable health and safety risks to anyone affected by the work and, where that is not possible, take steps to reduce or control those risks.
  • Ensure that everyone involved in the pre-construction phase communicates and cooperates, coordinating their work wherever required.
  • Liaise with the Principal Contractor, keeping them informed of any risks that need to be controlled during the construction phase.
