First Principal Designer for Exor
Boyes Rees Architects have become the first Exor member to gain Principal Designer approval.
The role of Principal Designer replaced the role of CDM Co-ordinator in the CDM 2015 regulations which came into force in April this year. The principal designer has responsibility for planning, managing and monitoring the pre-construction phase and co-ordinating matters relating to health and safety during this phase to ensure that the project is carried out without risks to health and safety.
Exor is a founder member of Safety Schemes In Procurement (SSiP), which is an umbrella organisation aiming to cut costs and bureaucracy in supply chain assessment. Clive Webb Director (pictured) at Boyes Rees Architects who recently gained Principal Designer approval, and have been members of Exor for four years, says that clients are increasingly looking for SSIP accreditation in order to ensure that their suppliers have appropriate organisational capability and health and safety management arrangements to work for them.
One of Wales’ largest and longest-established architectural practices, Boyes Rees Architects has had a record year thanks to winning major projects in the education, healthcare and residential sectors. They are BREEAM accredited (including an accreditation in student accommodation) and count the Royal Mail and NHS amongst their clients.
