About the role

Balfour Beatty has an exciting opportunity for a Temporary Works Coordinator to join our Major Projects team to work at our Hinkley Point C site in Bridgwater.

This four-year tunnelling and marine package includes the construction of three marine tunnels - both onshore and offshore totalling over 9.5 kilometres in length and 7 metres in diameter to form part of the vital cooling system required for the UKs landmark nuclear power station.

Due to the size and complexity of this project we are looking for candidates with previous tunnelling experience. If you've not previously worked as a Temporary Works Coordinator but have experience of tunnelling projects as a Section Engineer or Site/Sub Agent, we would welcome your application.

What you'll be doing

As a Temporary Works Coordinator, you will:

* Coordinate with all parties involved in the design and construction of temporary works;
* Liaise with clients to determine if schemes may affect the public and to ascertain approval process and certification required;
* Compile and periodically update a Temporary Works Schedule with all relevant information and to periodically review the schedule with the Temporary Works Designer and Project Lead;
* Ensure that an adequate Temporary Works design is carried out;
* Supervise and assess the competence of the TWS with the Project Lead;
* Prepare/review the design brief for adequacy/completeness prior to issue to TWD;
* Ensure that the duration for temporary works designs, checking and construction are realistically timed in the construction programme;
* Ensure that the completed designs are obtained from the TWD within the required deadline;
* Ensure that the designer complies with the design brief and adequately describes the residual risks. These risks are to be reviewed, accepted and briefed to construction team by TWC;
* Discuss any changes to the design with the TWD and manage the design change process;
* Ensure that Temporary Works Design Check Confirmation/Approval forms are issued (ENG-SF-4004);
* Ensure that designs are issued to the construction team and other interested parties e.g. client;
* Ensure that construction is only carried out from drawings issued for construction;
* Ensure that the construction method statement incorporates the requirements of both the permanent and temporary works designs e.g. loads on foundations/permanent works, structural integrity, stability and hold points, etc.
* Check that materials and equipment are adequate, especially when used before;
* Check preparations for temporary work structures (e.g. foundations) and allow erection to proceed;
* Carry out inspections of temporary works prior to loading and unloading and ensure the competence of any persons where delegated to carry out on-site inspections (e.g. TWS);
* Draw up and agree with site team a list of hold points for certain operations for which inspection is required prior to work progressing further;
* Ensure that erected temporary works are maintained and periodic checking processes are in place;
* Undertake general engineering and TW management support work as directed by Lead TWC / Engineering manager;
* Assist with method engineering reviews, helping to plan the construction sequences and developing TW concepts collaboratively with construction team.

Who we're looking for

Personal Qualities and Experience

Desirable:

* Formal qualifications such as HNC or Degree.
