Since the introduction of the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015, the role of CDM coordinator has been replaced by the role of Principal Designer. Every UK construction project thus requires a Principal Designer and our form of agreement is designed for this role.
The document template is in MS Word and contains 20 clauses:
- Definitions and interpretation
- Appointment & warranty
- Commencement & term
- Duties of principal designer
- Duties of client
- Fees & payment
- Additional services
- Copyright licence
- Professional indemnity insurance & liability
- Assignment & subcontracting
- Collateral warranties
- Resolution of disputes
- Governing law
- Entire agreement
- Rights of third parties
There are also three schedules to be completed, detailing the description of the project, the services (with particular reference to the CDM Regulations), fees and expenses.
