The introduction of the revised Construction Design Management Regulations in 2007, created the role of CDM Co-ordinator. Since then Western Building Consultants have strived to achieve excellence as CDM-Co-ordinators and provide a professional service to clients. 


With the introduction of the CDM 2015 Regulations the role of the CDM Co-ordinator has now changed and the emphasis on Health & Safety has shifted towards the new role of a Principal Designer. With this change much of the duties under the regulations have changed and a summery can be found here.

In our role as a CDM advisor we can assist and advise domestic and commercial clients regarding their duties liaising with the project team to ensure Health & Safety in construction is maintained at the highest level. We provide these services in Bristol and the South West.  


We have advised and have experience working on small and large projects, our past clients include the MOD, architects and large developers such as the PG Group. As well as advising clients on their duties we can also act as Principal Designer within a design role or assist other designers to fully discharge their duties. 





As fully incorporated members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Western Building Consultants stand as a fully qualified and experienced professional company to assist with your ongoing CDM Coordination/principle designer duties whilst also providing advice on construction health and safety. 



We are fully qualified construction professionals. RICS accredited principal designer in Bristol.

 construction industry  professional.


Western Building Consultants have been providing CDM Co-ordinator and CDM principal designer services in Bristol for over 15 years.  


We have vast experience of projects large and small. Commercial & Residential.


Unlike our competitors, Western Building Consultants are designers. We have an experienced team used to dealing with architectural specifications & surveying repairs.

This means that we can practically apply the regulations for designers in real life circumstances.


Our services can be fully tailored to suit the needs of your development. 

Whether you need a CDM principal designer, site safety audits or advice as a client at WBC we can provide a one stop shop for all of your needs tailored to your exact requirements.




From April 2014 the CDM Co-ordinator role is being dissolved into the lead designers responsibilities and as such designers of buildings have once again been handed the accountability for the safety of a project. As well as providing this service for our projects it is likely that smaller Architects and designers will require outside help with their duties. Western Building Consultants are happy to provide this complimentary service to independent design firms within the local area.


So whatever the Health & Safety needs of your project, contact us for advice on your duties and requirements under the Construction, Design and Management Regulations.
