Principal Contractor Support Services

MAC’s focus is to review, advise and support your business so that it is suitably set-up to deliver the Principal Contractor role (in accordance with CDM 2015), while also providing excellent service in the role.

Upskilling, improving and enhancing your Principal Contractor offering can open new markets, providing opportunities above and beyond existing portfolios.  As such, your business could be able to bid for larger and more complex projects.

MAC’s comprehensive service includes provision of tried and tested suite of documents, policies and procedures that are easily adapted to meet the bespoke requirements of suitable construction contractors.

While the general requirements and duties placed on Principal Contractors are to ensure cooperation between all contractors on-site, duties on Principal Contractors have developed and become more and more onerous.

Our consultants have assisted numerous Principal Contractors in improving and enhancing their service offering. 

We can also facilitate developing contractors, and self-build developers, into Principal Contractors.

Our people:

With national coverage, MAC’s team of CDM and Construction H&S professionals are knowledgeable, approachable and provide identifiable beneficial advice.

Our focus is always to drive compliance with legislation in a proportional and cost-effective manner, while developing service excellence.

Adding Value:

MAC have developed an app/platform that we utilise for site audits.  This allows data to be captured that identifies H&S shortfalls. 

This allows us to compile statistics and provide realistic targeted examples of potential improvements regarding day-to-day operations.  Which in-turn assists with achieving compliance with all relevant H&S legislation. 

MAC can develop this tool so that it is bespoke to the specific requirements of our contractors clients’ requirements.


“MAC Construction Consultants recently completed a CDM & health and safety “GAP analysis” exercise on the company. MAC’s review constructively identified areas for improvement across our strategic H&S policies and site-based documentation. MAC worked closely with us to tailor the arrangements and advise on proportional solutions that best fit the company and our undertakings. We are more than happy to both recommend and continue to use their services.”
