Designers and anyone they engage to help with design work must have the appropriate skills, knowledge, training and experience to do the work.
The term design includes drawings, design details, specifications, bills of quantity and calculations prepared for the purpose of a design. The scope of a designer under CDM applies to more than architects, and can include engineers, quantity surveyors, temporary work engineers, interior designers and often contractors, commercial clients and any other person who specifies or alters a design.
CDM duties will apply to you as soon as you are appointed and designs are started. It does not matter whether planning permission or funds have been secured, or if the client is a domestic client, CDM designer duties still apply.
