Construction Site Management

The Principal Designer

In October 2015, the CDM regulations changed and for Non Domestic Projects, a Principal Designer has to be incorporated into the team from the inception of a project. My experience, based on 17 years managing Health and Safety in Construction, the Pre-Construction Environment and Industrial settings means that I am fully conversant in Risk Management and posses sufficient competency to fulfill the role of PD for smaller projects. I am able to:

  • Plan, manage, monitor and coordinate health and safety in the pre-construction phase
  • Bring together Pre-Construction Information and develop the Pre Construction Health and Safety Plan
  • Mitigate foreseeable Health and Safety Risks, assisting other designers to design them out
  • Ensuring all parties involved in developing the Pre Construction Information communicates and co-ordinates information effectively
  • Liaise with the Principal Contractor both before and during the construction phase

Site Management & Construction Manager:
