Principal Designer and CDM (Health &Safety) Regulations

Providing a full Principal Designer service for your academy or MAT

A Principal Designer is required by law to ensure that health and safety issues are properly considered during a project’s development, minimising the risk of harm to those who have to build, use and maintain academy buildings.

This requirement was included in the 2015 revision of the Construction Design and Management Regulations (CDM Regulations) and is intended to give responsibility for health and safety to an individual who has the ability to influence the design.

At S2e we are experienced Principal Designers and will co-ordinate all the health and safety aspects of the project including:

  • Preparing the health and safety file
  • Ensuring risks are eliminated or controlled through design work
  • Ensuring contractor cooperation and compliance
  • Assisting the client in preparing pre-construction information
