Principal Designer

Be confident in the health and safety of your project by choosing ONE for the role of Principal Designer.

A Principal Designer is appointed by the client to take control of the pre-construction phase of any project which involves more than one contractor. This vital role influences how risks to health and safety are managed throughout the project, however, design decisions made during the pre-construction phase have a significant influence in ensuring the project is delivered in a way that reduces health and safety risks to everyone affected by the work.

The Principal Designer will work with all parties to eliminate, reduce and control foreseeable health and safety risks. They will also liaise with the Principal Contractor to keep them informed of any risks that must be controlled during the construction phase.

You are in safe hands with our proven track record

The CDMC role was replaced with the Principal Designer in April 2015. This brings this key project responsibility within the designer’s remit and many organisations have chosen ONE for this critical role.

With health and safety already inherent in our design approach, we welcomed the introduction of this role to the industry. We have well established procedures in place to integrate comprehensive risk management at every stage of a project – right through from concept to completion. We, therefore, provide a high quality and reliable service to clients both effectively and efficiently.
