CDM Principal Designer

BHT Building Consultancy can assist clients by taking control of the pre-construction phase of any project with more than one contractor. We will act as Principal Designer and our role will involve influencing how risks to health and safety are managed throughout a project. Design decisions made during the pre-construction phase have a significant influence in ensuring the project is delivered in a way that secures the health and safety of everyone affected by the work.

Our role as Principal Designer will involve:

  • Plan, manage, monitor and coordinate health and safety in the pre-construction phase.
  • Help and advise the client in bringing together pre-construction information, and provide
    the information designers and contractors need to carry out their duties.
  • Work with any other designers on the project to eliminate foreseeable health and safety
    risks to anyone affected by the work and, where that is not possible, take steps to reduce or
    control those risks.
  • Ensure that everyone involved in the pre-construction phase communicates and cooperates,
    coordinating their work wherever required.
  • Liaise with the principal contractor, keeping them informed of any risks that need to be
    controlled during the construction phase.
