Construction design &
management regulations

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM Regulations) were originally introduced in 1994 placing duties on clients, designers and contractors involved in construction works to consider aspects of Health and Safety in their procurement, design, construction and maintenance of structures and buildings. In 2007 the CDM Regulations were comprehensively updated bringing together the previous version of the Regulations with the Construction (Health Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1996.

In most circumstances, the current CDM Regulations place a responsibility on the Client of a construction project to appoint a CDM Co-ordinator. It is the CDM Co-ordinator’s role to ensure that all relevant parties in the procurement of the construction works, namely the client, the designer and the principal contractor are aware of their responsibilities and obligations and fulfil these in accordance with the Regulations.

The key requirement for the CDM Co-ordinator is to advise the client on how to meet the client#s duties under the CDM Regulations 2007 and assist them in fulfilling their obligations. Tims Morris Limited employ qualified RMaPS (Registered Member of the Association for Project Safety) staff and we have a demonstrable track record of providing CDMCo-ordinator services (formerly known as Planning Supervisor services under the 1994 edition of the CDM Regulations 1994) as part of an overall project management or design service or as a stand-alone CDM Co-ordinator service.
