UNSPECIFIED Para:PAS 8671 Introduction

0 Introduction This PAS addresses the new dutyholder role of Principal Designer, which is part of a drive to make buildings safer for the people who occupy them. This drive was galvanized by the Grenfell Tower fire on 14 June 2017, which prompted a review of the system for regulating high-rise residential buildings. Led by Dame Judith Hackitt, it concluded (among other findings) that the roles and responsibilities of those procuring, designing, constructing and maintaining all buildings (i.e. not just high-rise residential buildings) were unclear, and that competence across the system is variable. The UK government accepted the recommendations of her review, Building a Safer Future, Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety: Final Report, and, after consultation and due parliamentary process, introduced the Building Safety Bill [4]. 1.1 The Building Safety Bill The Building Safety Bill (BSB) 2021 sets out how the Government intends to deliver the principles and recommendations of Dame Judith Hackitt’s report. It aims to ensure that there is greater accountability and responsibility for fire and structural safety issues throughout the lifecycle of buildings. It establishes a new regulatory regime for building safety and introduces more stringent requirements for higher-risk buildings (HRBs). It also sets the scene for instituting a culture change and motivating compliance in the industry. 1.2 Higher-risk buildings The definition of higher-risk buildings (HRBs) is set out in the draft Higher-Risk Buildings (Descriptions and Supplementary Provisions) Regulations, 2021 [5]. NOTE The BSB enables the definition of HRB to be reviewed and amended over time by way of amending the Regulations. 1.3 New competence system and BSI FLEX 8670 Complementary work by the Competence Steering Group for Building a Safer Future (CSG) explored the competences needed for safety-critical disciplines working on higher risk buildings [6]. The final report, Setting the Bar, recommended that, as one of the three critical roles with oversight of building safety at each stage of a building’s lifecycle, the Principal Designer role would require enhanced competences, in addition to any discipline-specific competence. The CSG noted that individuals in the role need an overarching understanding of all aspects of building safety and the competence to interrogate design, challenge bad practice, identify major hazards, and minimize safety risks to occupiers of the completed asset. Setting the Bar paved the way for a new system for harmonizing and standardizing the competences needed to determine compliant building safety outcomes in the UK’s built environment industry as a whole, not just in HRBs. The new system of competences is underpinned by BSI Flex 8670, which establishes the overarching framework for behavioural and functional competences needed to improve both building safety outcomes and the dominant culture at work in the built environment sector. It also defines the scope and common terms of reference that discipline-, sector- or role- specific competence frameworks can conform to, aiming for consistency, reliability, and comparability regardless of the disciplines, sectors, or roles involved. NOTE This PAS 8671 is aligned to BSI Flex 8670. 1.4 New dutyholders and the Building Regulations The BSB’s strategy for driving change includes the creation of new dutyholder roles to improve compliance with the building regulations, including that of Principal Designer. Although the new Principal Designer role reflects the role of Principal Designer under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (hereafter referred to as the CDM

4 Functional requirements and core competences COMMENTARY ON CLAUSE 4 The primary aim of the BSB is to improve compliance with the building regulations so that buildings are safer for their users. Except in the simplest projects, the process of compliance, which is significantly affected by the design work, requires a broad range of inputs from many design disciplines using in-depth knowledge, skills, and experience of many kinds and from many professionals in the field of the design and architecture. It is unlikely that a single individual has this range or depth of competence. This is reflected in the duties placed on Principal Designers: the APICD does not require that Principal Designers have the full range and detailed technical knowledge, skills, and experience to understand how every design input can comply as part of an integrated whole. Instead, the APICD requires that Principal Designers plan, manage, monitor, and coordinate the design work. The fulfilment of Principal Designers’ duty to plan, manage, monitor, and coordinate is supported by designers’ duty to be competent to comply with building regulations to the extent required by their domain-specific competence (e.g. as architects, engineers, plumbers, or specialist consultants). It is not sufficient, however, for carrying out the Principal Designer role to be a box-ticking exercise to record designers’ claims of compliance. Individuals in the new Principal Designer role should have the competence to facilitate and orchestrate the design work, and to interrogate design inputs in a way that holds designers to account and achieves regulatory compliance. In overseeing the integration and finalisation of the design work, and liaising with the Principal Contractor, Principal Designers should be competent to analyse and evaluate building safety risks, and act on the resulting conclusions. They should also have an extensive grounding in the relevant technical and legal framework and systems of information management, and the competence to address any project-specific gaps in their own understanding. While this suggests that Principal Designers should have whole-building competence and control of the design work, there are likely to be instances where it is reasonable for other types of designer to undertake the role. The requirements of this PAS are therefore framed to include all kinds of designers regardless of their prior learning, qualifications, and sector- or discipline-specific skills, knowledge, and experience. (See Annex B1). To fulfil the duties under the APICD and the draft Building (Higher-risk Buildings) (England) Regulations, the Principal Designers will need to have a high level of personal integrity and responsibility, and to be able to communicate openly and effectively, which is why appropriate behaviour features as a functional requirement, and why the associated core competences are equivalent to those required by professional codes of conduct. The functional requirements and their related core competences in this PAS are separated into categories for ease of communication and to facilitate competence assessment. In practice, however, the separate categories overlap to a considerable extent and so are expected to be applied evenly and concurrently. The Principal Designer shall demonstrate competence by applying the functional requirements set out in 4.1- 4.8 concurrently in the performance of their duties and in carrying out the role of Principal Designer or managing the function of Principal Designer. 4.1 1 Legal framework and compliance The Principal Designer shall have the competence to oversee the design work during the design phase so that, if built as designed, the building work to which design work relates would comply with relevant building regulations. The Principal Designer shall have the core competences relating to the legal framework and compliance at the level for all buildings and, if working on a project that is or will be an HRB, at the level for HRBs, as set out below. NOTE In accordance with Bloom’s Taxonomy, the threshold level of understanding required in each of the core competences is set by the choice of verb.
