Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015 (CDM)

Why Andrews Eades for Construction Design & Management?

CDM aims to improve health and safety in the construction industry and is applicable to all projects.

Under CDM there are various roles which must be assigned to different persons (or dutyholders) for each project, with each dutyholder being responsible for managing different aspects relating to health and safety.

Andrews Eades are experienced in taking on the role of Principle Designer, who is broadly responsible for co-ordinating health and safety in the pre-construction phase of a project. We may also issue an F10 form to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) if the project is considered notifiable, which provides the HSE with key project information prior to commencement.

We also provide comprehensive advice and guidance to clients regarding their role and responsibilities under CDM 2015.

  • Experienced Principle Designer.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve picked out some answers to the most popular questions we get asked by clients and potential customers about our Architectural Services.

Do I need a building contract?2023-08-24T14:40:53+01:00

No, it is not a statutory requirement to have a contract for a building project. However, we recommend that a contract is put in place for larger or complex projects as it binds both client and contractor to a clear framework for how the project is run and provides mechanisms for resolving disputes.

What is the difference between planning consent and Building Regulations consent?2023-08-24T12:54:45+01:00

Planning consent is the permission to carry out development works, therefore planning drawings tend to focus on the layout, size, and appearance of the building.

Building Regulations consent seeks to confirm that your development works meet the minimum technical standards as defined in the Approved Documents. Therefore, Building Regulations drawings are more detailed and tend to focus on structural stability, energy efficiency, and the wellbeing of its occupiers and users.

What is Permitted Development?2023-08-24T11:11:13+01:00

Permitted Development rights are a national grant of planning consent which allow certain building works and changes of use to be carried out without having to make a planning application. Permitted Development rights are subject to conditions and limitations to control impacts and to protect local amenity.

Whilst Permitted Development removes the requirement to apply for formal planning consent Andrews Eades would still recommend that you apply for a Certificate of Lawful Development from the Local Authority, as this would confirm that your proposed works are legal in planning terms.

When do I need planning permission?2023-08-24T14:42:18+01:00

Planning consent depends upon the nature and size of extension, listed status, conservation areas etc.

We would be please to advise on the likely need for consent. Please contact us for more information.
