Principal Designer CDM

To abide by the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM Regulations), building projects must have an allocated ‘principal designer’ who takes control of the pre-construction of any project which involves more than one contractor.  Put simply, the role of a principal designer is to

  • Manage health and safety during the pre-construction phase including working with other contractors during the project to limit and prevent health and safety risks
  • Help and advise the client to bring all the pre-build information together and to make sense of all the regulations necessary when dealing with a building project
  • Act as a communication point between the client and any other contractors as necessary during the build
