about this item

This is the designer’s essential guide to implementing the new CDM 2015 regulations. It provides both a straightforward overview of the key changes and new duty holders, including the Principal Designer, as well as full colour diagrams and annotated plans which demonstrate how to apply the principles in the real world. As the regulations come into force it aims to reassure those fearing a change in their obligations by outlining easy to use practical tools which will integrate the philosophy of the new regulations – of proportionate response, creative solutions and collaborative working – into day-to-day practice. It’s designed as a concise and handy quick reference guide, easy to carry around on site or use at your desk, translating what can be dry and often impenetrable legislation into a set of simple, intuitive, design friendly and safe messages. Written by an architect with considerable industry experience in CDM, with intimate knowledge of the new regulations and years of practice in technical design enabling designers to integrate CDM without compromising their vision. It provides authoritative CDM support that tailored for the design professions, especially in the often misunderstood but essential area of aesthetics.

This is a must-have for all designers and architects who will need to utilise the new regulations in their projects from April 2015 onwards as well as the contractors, clients and consultants who will need to understand and collaborate with them.
