Principal Designer Services

Principal Designer Services

At DB3, we have been providing Principal Designer CDM Services to clients for over 20 years through the different iterations of the regulations. From the initial inception of the CDM Regulations in 1994 as planning supervisor, through to the current 2015 CDM regulations, DB3 have adapted to the challenges of keeping up to date with the regulation changes, ensuring compliance with the legal requirements of CDM 2015 to ensure projects are carried out in a way that secures Health & Safety (H&S).

With the introduction of the Building Safety Act 2022, H&S compliance for construction projects is more important than ever, with additional duties being placed on clients, principal designers, designers and principal contractors. We maintain the highest standards of management and control throughout projects to deliver schemes of all scales, programmes and complexity.

The DB3 Approach

The DB3 Approach

 

Our pragmatic and collaborative approach to CDM Principal Designer Services is more than a tick box exercise, it is a holistic approach and our policies and procedures form part of an externally audited QA procedure to ensure that CDM is integrated from the outset of being appointed to each project. We assist clients to comply with these regulations; working with design teams, be that as a multi-disciplinary approach with our architectural and mechanical and electrical engineers or with external design teams to ensure that CDM is fully and properly considered in order to minimise H&S risks throughout the project.

You're in Safe Hands

You're in Safe Hands

As designers and principal designers, we hold corporate accreditation with the Association of Project Safety (APS – No. 040042), and we have individually APS accredited staff across our seven studios. With all staff receiving formal CDM training and undertaking regular CPD sessions we have the resource to provide services to support nationwide projects, either as a standalone project or nationwide programme of works.

The Building Safety Act 2022

The Building Safety Act 2022

The Building Safety Act 2022, enacted in June 2022 in response to the Grenfell Tower fire, serves as a pivotal legislative framework for enhancing building safety standards. Taking effect in October 2023, this act brings significant changes. To uncover your responsibilities, and how we can support you, click here.

Working Together

Working Together

In addition to the above qualifications, our multi-disciplinary teams include staff from architectural, services and building surveying backgrounds. This combination of skills allows DB3 to manage the consideration of health and safety in a considered and pragmatic way.

We also provide Client CDM Advisory services, and very much enjoy working with design teams and with our clients to ensure that all health and safety is fully and properly considered at all stages of construction projects.
