I have over 16 years of Civil, Structural and Project management experience in a broad variety of Construction Projects both in Ireland and overseas.
Have operated at senior levels in projects valued from €1 million to €16 billion. I have managed the day to day contract on site including site supervision, project scope ( recording extras, variations, overspends, etc).worked with design teams to get finished design to site and have made changes where required with design team approval. I have worked with Subcontractors with various degrees of ability and have managed to get the required standard according to the specification.
I have a good understanding of Programming and would see this as the driving force behind any project, materials and resources would be closely monitored, so that there would be continuity of work and delays would be eliminated.
As Senior Engineer/Manger on site I would be responsible for the Safe execution of work and that all safety procedures would be in place. I am Health and Safety aware and would make sure that the Safety plan would be updated as required.
Time, Cost , Quality, H&S are some of the main issues that have to be monitored and controlled on site and I have being able to communicate these on site either thru meetings, one to one conversations and daily site inspections.
At the finishing stage of a project I make sure that there is good communication between all the Sub Cons. especially at the interface points and any issues with design and quality clearly defined.
I have managed crews which have being labor only supply and found that when there is a clear scope of work planned; work will be completed in an efficient manner.
I have worked as a Site Engineer/Manager on the Foundations and Structure on Civil Eng. Projects that range from an Airport Terminal Building, Tunnels, Cable Stay Bridge, Railway , Gas Turbine Building to Commercial Buildings in the last five years, that have included a 17 Storey High Rise, Offices and Car showrooms, Labs and Research Facilities.
