I am a Domestic Client

What can WSS do for me?

In the scope of CDM 2015 the duties of Domestic Clients are normally transferred to either:

  • The Contractor in the case of the single Contractor project
  • The Principal Contractor in the case of a project with more than one Contractor
  • However, should they choose, the Domestic Client can choose to have a written agreement in place with the Principal Designer to carry out the client duties. WSS can assist in devising these arrangements.
