A Principal Designer, as defined under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015), plays a crucial role in ensuring health and safety in the construction industry.

An overview of the responsibilities and role of a Principal Designer that Axiom can provide:

  • Design Coordination – Axiom can act as the Principal Designer responsible for coordinating the health and safety aspects of the design process. Axiom will work to ensure that health and safety is integrated into the project from the initial design stages.
  • Risk Management – Axiom’s principal designers can identify and manage potential risks associated with the construction project, focusing on hazards that could impact the health and safety of workers, users, and the public.
  • Pre-construction Information – Axiom acting as the Principal Designer collect and compile all relevant health and safety information, which is known as the “preconstruction information.” This information is vital for those involved in the project to understand and address the associated risks.
  • Health and Safety File – Axiom will prepare the Health and Safety File, a document that provides information on the project’s health and safety considerations. This file is handed over to the client upon project completion.
  • Communication – Axiom as the Principal Designer will facilitate communication and collaboration between different parties involved in the project, ensuring that health and safety information is effectively shared.
  • Client Liaison – Axiom will work closely with the client, advising them on their duties and ensuring that the client fulfils their obligations under the CDM regulations.
