Principal Designer (CDM)

Health and safety is of paramount importance on all construction projects. Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, the Employer and the project team all have responsibilities. To comply with these responsibilities, it is necessary for the Employer to appoint a Principal Designer.

Principal Designer (CDM)

The Principal Designer will advise and assist the Employer with his duties. This will include notifying the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), coordinating the health and safety aspects of design work and cooperating with others involved in the project.

We work with the design consultants to eliminate foreseeable health and safety risks to anyone affected by the work. Where this is not possible, we take steps to reduce or control those risks. We also liaise with the Principal Contractor during the construction phase and keep them informed of any risks that need to be controlled.

The Principal Designer should facilitate good communications between the Employer, Designers and Contractors and liaise with the Principal Contractor regarding ongoing design. In addition to this, the Principal Designer should identify, collect and pass on pre-construction information.

Rogerson Parry have undertaken the Principal Designer role on a number of occasions and would be pleased to work with you on your next project.
