Principal Designer

Our Principal Designer service ensures compliance with health and safety regulations throughout the design and planning phases of construction projects.

What we do

Our Principal Designer services involve managing health and safety risks during the pre-construction phase of a construction project.


Our expert team has years of experience in delivering quality services to our clients, with a core aim to ensure our clients comply with the legal framework set out by the CDM Regulations 2015. We provide a range of services, including assistance in the development of the initial brief, managing and monitoring the co-ordination of the pre-construction phase, and identifying, obtaining and collating pre-construction information. At RPA, we provide Principal Designer services in accordance with the CDM Regulations 2015.


We also offer CDM Advisor services to assist clients in discharging their duties under the Regulations, and our Principal Designers and CDM Advisors are individual members of the Association for Project Safety (APS).

How we do it

We take pride in delivering high-quality services that comply with the CDM Regulations 2015. First and foremost, our Principal Designers work collaboratively with our clients to ensure that all aspects of the project are managed properly.


We also use advanced technology and software to help us manage projects more efficiently, and our team is committed to providing timely and accurate advice to our clients. Rest assured, we always act independently, impartially, honestly, and fairly when making decisions. We attend design review meetings and ensure we’re liaising with the principal contractor throughout the project.


We also support the principal contractor in seeking and obtaining responses to health and safety queries from designers. At the end of the project, we compile the statutory health and safety file for formal handover.
