You know on Grand Designs, does anyone else find it strange when Kevin usually asks the doe eyed self-builder

“So, you are acting as Client, Principal Contractor, Principal Designer, Worker and project manager on the scheme”

Then they reply “Yes”

Why he doesn’t immediately say

“Have you got the required experience or insurance to undertake any of those roles under CDM?!”

I know it would make for shit TV but surely the law and people’s safety is more important?

What I’m amazed at is that no one has ever been injured or harmed on one of the sites, or maybe they just edited that out?

Joking aside, what this really does is send a message that anyone can perform any one of the roles listed above.

Which simply isn’t true. Well not if you want a successful project anyway
