“Pre-construction Information” is information that it is necessary to provide to tendering Principal Contractors as well as to the design team.
The Pre-construction Information serves two main purposes:
- During its development the Pre-construction Information can provide a focus at which health and safety considerations of the designs are brought together under the control of the Principal Designer.
- Secondly, the Pre-construction Information plays a vital role in the tender documentation. It enables prospective principal contractors to be fully aware of the project’s health and safety and welfare requirements. This will allow prospective principal contractors to have a level playing field as far as health and safety is concerned on which to provide tender submissions.
Pre-construction Information will not include information about normal construction techniques.
