Assisting with the design process coordination, planning and programming requirements for assigned work-packages within a designated area to ensure construction activities are delivered safely and in accordance with client cost, time, quality, and scope requirements.
Reports to the Project Engineer within an engineering team comprising of Site and Section engineers.
Key responsibilities & duties
• Checks dimensions design data early, raising technical queries to eliminate delays from insufficient information. • Responsible for supporting the production of methods statements and risk assessments to be approved by supervising engineers. • Measures materials usage and provides quantity information for preparation of material call off/requisitions. • Manages the survey equipment ensuring it is suitable for the works and in calibration so that there are no dimensional control errors due to survey equipment.
• Adopts and promotes a culture of ‘right first time’ • Files and maintains the engineer’s drawings and specifications so that the current information is always available. • Interprets and abstracts construction information from the drawings and specifications and provides this to the supervisors and operatives in a clear and understandable way using sketches. • Effectively communicate technical information to the workforce and liaise with all functions and support services in a timely and accurate manner. • Takes on the role of temporary works supervisor for their section of works and ensures temporary works are identified and the correct procedure is applied.
• Provides dimensional control for a section of works. • Implements the Inspection and Test Plan (ITP) ensuring that evidence and witness sign off is achieved at every step • Carries out quality control checks using internal check sheets where appropriate • Raises Non- Conformance Reports (NCR) for all non-conformances and reports potential non-conformances.
• Gather data from a range of sources through site assessments, environmental monitoring and third-party reports • Evaluate the environmental impact of the project, hazard or commercial operation • write up and present findings, costings, health and safety plans and recommendations on the containment, clean-up process, remediation, recycling and waste disposal, in order to fix environmental issues • Create plans to protect and restore the environment by removing contaminants from water, air and land • develop site-specific health and safety protocols such as spill contingency plans or methods for loading and transporting raw materials • Provide advice about preventing future difficulties • implement, manage and supervise the day-to-day tasks of construction and remediation schemes
• Undertakes as-built surveys for a section of the works and presents results in format that can be included in project records if required. • Collates and files quality records for potential inclusion in quality assurance documentation • Provide feedback to supervising engineers/managers on the effectiveness of materials, specialist contractors, plant and designers being used on site.
Academic or trade qualifications
Degree level qualification in Civil/Environmental Engineering.
Essential skills & knowledge:
You should probably be familiar with the following programs.
• AutoCad Civil • Desirable to have experience in the use of an EDM/Total Station • Microsoft Project Management and ArcGIS • Aeromod software
• A strong communicator with the ability to work within a team environment • Respects other team members across all functions and has a one-team approach. • Presents a professional image and promotes the values of the project • Demonstrates commitment to work to processes • Seeks to minimise waste in resources and materials
As civil engineering often requires a lot of site work and travel, hours can be irregular. You'll usually be expected to work around 40 hours per week.
