CDM and the Role of the Client
86 Edgware Road
Clients are organisations or individuals for whom a construction
project is carried out. They have specific legal duties under the
CDM 2015 regulations. This is because the client is a major
influence over the way a project is procured and managed.
Regardless of the size of the project, the client has contractual
control, appoints designers and contractors and determines the
money, time and other resources available. They set the project's
culture and standards of performance through their commitment,
behaviour and relationships with the project team.
