Principal Designer CDM 2015

The new Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 came into force on the 6th April 2015.  The Regulations include some of the biggest changes in construction for over 20 years.

We are here to help, Waterman can act as both Principal Designer and CDM 2015 Client Advisors. We can also support Design Practices when acting as Principal Designer and look at the wider health and safety implications enabling works and construction projects.

We run a number of health and safety related courses including Principal Designer Training. For more information please contact

Waterman Group will be on the APS Register for competent Principal Designers and Client Advisors.  This work stream is being led by Tara Fry who is a Fellow of the APS, Chartered IOSH and on the HSE’s Register of competent advisors, rest assured you will be in safe hands, with proportionate professional advice.

We have built a substantial track record in health and safety and continue to advise clients promoting the spirit as well as the letter of the CDM Regulations, to raise awareness and therefore to reduce accidents and improve health and safety throughout the whole life of the building from its construction, through its on-going maintenance, to its eventual demolition. We have also developed our site monitoring activities assessing the performance of the principal contractor during the construction phase and this enhanced level of service has been successfully implemented for many years.  This level of service will also assist clients with their enhanced duty to secure the health and safety of a project during construction under the 2015 regulations.
