Principal Designer

These 'hands-on' courses are specifically aimed at Designers wanting to take on the Principal Designer role, and explore the practicalities of design risk management. 

Courses are between 2 and 3 days in duration*. The scope of material covered is similar to our “Management of Pre-construction Health and Safety” specification, but there is a greater focus and emphasis on the statutory PD role and DRM.  Delegates will receive practical guidance and illustration on how to discharge the PD role in a proportionate manner, for any size of project. 

*the course will be a minimum of 2 days, but may be longer depending on the individual provider’s approach and emphasis.

The course includes practical workshops on how to discharge the PD role.
