When you start a project a client has arrange many things, including making sure that the project stays within the law. This means complying with the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015, which state that a Principal Designer must be appointed to construction projects.
The Principal Designer must be a designer on the project and be in a position to have control over the design and planning stage.
Failure to do this properly could mean that construction work is halted, work needs to be rectified or, ultimately you could be taken to court.
