  • Provide advice and guidance on the “buildability” of the design proposals to the design and construction teams on all packages
  • Lead the development and management of the design deliverables programme:
       - Ensure there is a clear schedule of design deliverables
       - Lead gate reviews activities to ensure that they are timely and              appropriate sign off is achieved at each project gate to include              appropriate communication to Bid Managers and other                          Design/Work Winning team members as required,  
       - Lead the co-ordination and production of design data, bid                    deliverables, reports and documentation essential to the project          and contractual requirements and report progress against the              design deliverables programme
  • Provide BIM management during the bid stage ensuring the supply chain is fully aware of BIM requirements
  • Consider the application of Lean construction techniques in order to save money, reduce waste and optimise construction.
  • Ensure a relentless focus on Zero Harm
