Principal Contractor

WMS perform the role of Principal Contractor across many contracts under the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015 (CDM). WMS possess the skills, knowledge, experience and the organisational capability necessary to successfully fulfil this position.

Careful planning is undertaken through the pre-construction phase with liaison between WMS, the Principal Designer and the Client. This allows WMS to risk assess, plan the contract delivery and create a thorough Construction Phase Plan (CPP).

WMS plan, manage, monitor and coordinate the entire construction phase through suitable site and project management. Our management team is very experienced in safely and effectively delivering contracts on time and to a very high standard.

WMS have a very strong specialist subcontractor supply chain that have been assessed via our subcontractor approval system. WMS review risk assessments and method statements prior to works being undertaken to ensure effective control measures and safe systems of work are adopted at all times. Smooth site operation and coordination is maintained through appropriate communication and quality management across all WMS sites.

WMS have a wealth of experience delivering refurbishment contracts and projects within budget and on time. We have the tools at our disposal to ensure excellence as standard with a combination of:

  • Qualified Experienced Managers
  • Trained staff / modern IT systems
