Construction Phase Plan, a requirement under CDM 2015

Under the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations (CDM 2015) the principal contractor has to produce a construction phase plan outlining the key arrangements to ensure that the work is carried out safely.

CDM Regulations 2015

The CDM Regulations now apply to all (including domestic) building and construction work, including new build, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance

The client should not allow work to start on site until there is an adequate plan in place.

The principal contractor is required to ensure that a suitable construction phase plan (‘the plan’) is:

(i) prepared before construction work begins,

(ii) developed in discussion with, and communicated to, contractors affected by it,

(iii) implemented, and

(iv) kept up to date as the project progresses;

The plan must also be tailored to the project, a generic plan will not satisfy the requirements of CDM 2015.
