PBA’s Birmingham Infrastructure team has been going from strength to strength since the team was established some 4 years ago. A number of exciting and challenging schemes have helped the team to grow to its current size, creating a solid base for future growth and diversification.

* Delegate and manage the technician resource in the delivery of outputs to agreed deadlines

* Prepare and manage technical reports
* A degree in Civil Engineering or an equivalent qualification
* Some experience of Section 38, Section 278 and Section 104 submissions

* Have experience in detailed drainage and attenuation design, including Sewers for Adoption 6 and 7, using MicroDrainage as well as hand-calculations and DMRB design approach
* Have experience in highway design and specification, both DMRB and Local Authority Design Guide
* Have experience in earthworks design, including interpretation of site investigation and preparation of earthworks analysis
