Construction Design Management

The new Construction Design Management (CDM) Regulations came into force in April 2015 aimed primarily at small to medium contractors. The changes in the regulations represent a major change affecting HIAs in that for the first time duties are placed upon domestic clients(although performed by others). There is a new role of Principal Designer in place of the CDM Coordinator as well as Principle Contractor for all projects where more than one contractor is likely to be involved.

Foundations have responded to the urgent need for training by organising a series of training events for staff involved in technical delivery within HIAs. If you haven’t attended to date and wish to attend a future course, please contact us at
