The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations (CDM) 2015, enforced in April 2015, have redefined the duties and legal responsibilities of the Principal Designer.
The Principal Designer is a new role, appointed by the client, that controls the pre-construction phase of the project. This role has the skills and knowledge to plan, manage and monitor the co-ordination including any design work of the pre-construction phase. The Principal Designer has absorbed some of the CDM Coordinator's responsibilities.
