Management of health & safety
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 require building owners undertaking works to buildings to identify a duty holder responsible for ensuring the project will be constructed, maintained and, eventually, demolished with minimum risk to those involved in the project and to the general public. The duty placed upon building owners is statutory and breaches of the Act are a criminal, not civil, offence.

The aim was, and is, to reduce by careful design the number of those killed or injured by the process of construction, maintenance and demolition.

Based on our work as architects and our extensive experience of building construction, particularly the refurbishment and upgrading of complex roofs above occupied buildings, we are able to fulfil the role of Principal Designer required by the Regulations.

Since the inception of the Regulations in 1994 we have fulfilled the role of planning supervisor and subsequently of CDM Co-ordinator upon those projects upon which we have been engaged to provide architectural services. We are now pleased to be able to offer to Clients our services as Principal Designer on projects.
