The key expertise we offer to our clients

Principal Designer for CDM

Our skilled principal designers for CDM boast enhanced practical knowledge about all construction and design projects as both highly qualified health and safety experts and chartered building surveyors. We are proud to be qualified members of the Association for Project Safety (APS), as well as the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).

We provide a service that addresses our obligations, all the while independent of the designer, and offer independent and impartial help in dealing with the principal and other contractors. Taking a proactive, positive, and practical approach to implementing CDM Regulations helps us to minimise bureaucracy while never losing sight of the importance of health and safety.
