Why choose Exoro Consulting as a CDM2015 principal designer?

As your principal designer, Exoro Consulting is able to provide strong direction and implement a clear health and safety plan through the pre-construction phase. We manage design, we manage risk, but most of all we manage people effectively throughout the duration of a given project.

We strongly believe that health and safety should be incorporated into a wider project seamlessly and without additional hassle for our clients. By maintaining clear, open lines of communication between client, contractors and other stakeholders we work to get the very best from all parties involved. Our primary role is to implement the necessary health and safety processes and help to avoid costly mistakes, without disrupting progress.

Our proven track record for delivering quality, health, safety and environmental projects on a global basis enables us to effectively manage contractors and negate risk. We are as sympathetic to the challenges and pressures that our clients face as we are meticulous in our approach to construction projects.

What does a principal designer do?

A principal designer is typically appointed to take control of the pre-construction phase of a project where multiple contractors will be required. The appointment of a principal designer is required under Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.

On any project, the principal designer is integral to ensuring that things run smoothly before the first contractor arrives on-site. By putting the correct processes and procedures in place, a principal designer can secure the health and safety of personnel, and avoid errors throughout the build process.

The role of a principal designer can include some or all of the following:

  • Plan, coordinate and monitor health and safety through the pre-construction phase of a project
  • Advise a client on compiling information to instruct designers and contractors working on a project
  • Eliminating foreseeable health and safety risks or take steps to reduce and control risk where it presents itself.
  • Maintain clear lines of communication between contractors throughout the pre-construction phase

As principal designers we are committed to working with clients on the gathering and assessment of pre-construction information. We can help you to establish any gaps in information, advise on making revisions to the pre-construction information and liaise with designers and contractors to bring them up to speed.

Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 replaced CDM 2007 in April 2015. By following the steps outlined under these regulations, it is possible to ensure that no one is harmed during the duration of a construction project and that unexpected costs and safety issues do not interrupt the delivery of a build.

CDM 2015 is not intended to add labour-intensive and unnecessary paperwork to a construction project. Instead it is designed to ensure that lives are protected with minimum hassle and that the project is planned, managed and coordinated efficiently.

Failure to meet CDM 2015 requirements may result in construction work being delayed or even stopped altogether by HSE or a local authority. In extreme circumstances, you may even be prosecuted, which is why it is vital that you are in safe hands when you instruct a principal designer.
