SCP appointed on Highway Improvement Schemes for Manchester City Council


SCP have been appointed by both Manchester City Council and Colas across 4 key pinch point schemes to assist with the Principal Designer Role. The costs of these schemes are all multi million pounds and are in prominent locations within Manchester, which require specific attention to detail on safety of delivery.

This role is a significant role under CDM 2015 and as SCP engaged with the CDM 2015 changes and the clarifications and amendments specifically around the role of the Principal Designer.

The Principal Designer role was previously outside the team on most of our infrastructure projects, we have been able to bring this much closer and they are involved day to day.

This has allowed us to shift our position in helping and advising Clients and supporting them to act safely and compliantly.

SCP see the PD role as one, which aims to improve safety and coordination between the parties involved on a scheme and to make the deliver, maintenance and operation of a scheme safer.

If any other would like support with this service, please feel free to contact Steven Carmody,
