CDM Principal Designer Role for Steel Frame Building Projects
As your principal designer, we work closely with you, the principal contractor and other designers on planning, managing and coordinating the health and safety aspects of the design and construction of your steel frame building project, to ensure it meets the relevant standards and regulations, and that the risks are identified and eliminated or controlled. We will also prepare and maintain the health and safety file for your steel building project, which contains information about the project that is needed by anyone who may use or maintain the steel building in the future.
You can involve us at the start of your steel building project and let us handle everything, or use our expertise for specific tasks, such as carrying out a feasibility study.
Our CDM Principal Designer Services for Steel Buildings
When you embark on a steel building project as a business it's important to understand all the design implications up front. This can help you with managing the project budget, understanding what your contractors are:
- Experience gathering all elements of a steel building project
- Most practical knowledge to carry out work, based on experience
- Offer practical solutions with a straightforward design approach
- Unlike an architect we prioritise the practicalities of a building, how it will work for your business whilst still considering regulatory compliances
Why you need a steel building CDM principal designer - A principal designer is a key role in any steel building project, as they are responsible for ensuring the health and safety of the workers and the public during the design and construction phases. A principal designer has to coordinate with the client, the contractors, the architects, and the engineers to plan, manage, monitor, and control the design process. They also have to identify and eliminate or reduce any potential hazards and risks that may arise from the structural, mechanical, electrical, or environmental aspects of the project. A principal designer has to comply with the relevant regulations and standards, such as the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, and provide adequate information and guidance to all parties involved. By having a principal designer role, a steel building project can benefit from improved efficiency, quality, cost-effectiveness, and safety outcomes.Need a CDM principal designer for a steel building? →
