CDM 07 For Designers

Construction Design Management 2007 For Designers & Architects

Designers are placed in a unique position to consider potential risks at the very start of a project. We work closely with both our own in house designers and our project partners to ensure that risks are identified and managed effectively from the very beginning of the design process.

Using a ‘live’ documentation system all risks that cannot be eliminated through design are recorded by every designer, architect, engineer and anyone with an input into the design stages.

  • Design risk register
  • Live notation on drawings issued to site
  • Use, maintenance and demolition statements to be added to the Health & Safety File

The use of a single, central design risk register that is completed by all designing team members will create an information ‘pool’. The information is then available to all members of the team at all stages of the project giving maximum possible availability of information.

Designers will then add significant risks and the arrangements made to minimise them to the project drawings. This ensures they are easily available to everyone who may need them, throughout the life of the building.

Any risks involved in the Use, Maintenance or Demolition of the structure should be fully documented and added to the Health & Safety File in the form of Risk Statements. These must detail the Risk, arrangements made to minimise it, and any specific methods that should be employed to avoid harm or hazard effecting Health & Safety.


Timbertecs will liase with your design team in order to establish a uniform recording and risk communication system that works for YOUR project.

Our emphasis and the spirit of CDM’07 is on the planning and communication of risk, EVERY project team member should be involved from the earliest possible stage to enable thorough consideration of all significant risks at every stage of the project.
