Under the CDM Regulations 2015, the Principal Designer (PD) has a central role and wide-ranging responsibilities within your project. These include planning, managing, monitoring and coordinating health and safety in the pre-construction phase, and preparing and presenting relevant information to other duty holders. The PD also provides relevant information to the Principal Contractor (PC), who’s then in charge of managing health and safety during the construction phase.
Clients need to appoint a PD as early as possible, to ensure health and safety is firmly embedded in your project from the start. This will make sure that the Regulations are fully complied with and that the benefits of design reviews and realised.
And who better to appoint than our PDs. Applying their depth and breadth of construction experience, they’ll help you achieve your objectives with minimal risk and cost. They’re completely independent and objective, and stay fully abreast of the various Acts and Regulations you’re subject to.
Most importantly, our PDs understand the commercial and timescale pressures you face, as well as your health and safety obligations. We’re here to help you balance these project challenges, and deliver your project safely, on time and on budget.
