  • Undertake design work related to your discipline/area of expertise
  • Coordinate the project team including Civil, Electrical, Mechanical and Process designers and ensure designs are completed on programme, within budget, and to the quality defined by each framework and industry specifications
  • Work as part of a “Project triangle” alongside a Site Manager and Quantity Surveyor to ensure that technical, constructability and commercial aspects of project delivery are considered throughout.
  • Build positive relationships with the client project, operational and technical assurance teams and promote a “one-team” approach.
  • Support and mentor less experienced members of the team.
  • Visit sites across your frameworks region as required to develop the design and support the construction delivery of your projects.
