Any uncertainty as to who is the Client should be resolved by considering who:
Ultimately decides what is to be constructed, where, when and by whom;
commissions the design and construction work (the employer in contract terminology);
initiates the work;
is at the head of the procurement chain;
Whoever appoints the principal contractor and the principal designer.
The “Client” is the person or organisation who wants the construction work done and this does not depend on whoever is funding the project.
The CDM Regulations place responsibilities for managing the health and safety of a construction project on three main duty holders. The Client has overall responsibility for the successful management of the project and is supported by the Principal Designer and Principal Contractor in different phases of the project.
