Waldeck works with clients across the built environment to deliver a broad range of CDM Principal Designer and Health & Safety support.

How we can help

We recognise that clients often prefer to communicate with a single point of contact to deliver solutions for their investments.

Waldeck can assemble an appropriate design team with the necessary experience that will satisfy the requirements of the CDM legislation, working as the single point of responsibility for all engineering design, with an appointed Principal Designer.
