Project : Building a fleet of safe, reliable nuclear power stations in the UK to secure a low-carbon energy future. The project is a diverse and collaborative organisation committed to engaging stakeholders, obtaining development consent and preparing for the construction of the power station.
With the construction of the recent project successfully underway, the client is now developing plans to build a further power station in the east of England.
Mace has been supporting the client on the development of the nuclear project since 2011 and continues to act as a key framework supplier under a variety of workstreams.
The design delivery manager will be embedded within the project delivery teams and responsible for managing, coordinating and integrating the delivery of design for specific work package(s) for confirmation of project requirements, and then for procurement, manufacturing and construction.
Your responsibilities will include :
Defining the requirements and scope of specific packages of design work and ensure closure of requirements through to commissioning and handover.
Being a champion safe by design’ with the design supply chain, maximise the opportunity to improve the health, safety and wellbeing of all those engaged in and impacted by the project.
Supporting the development of operating processes and procedures, implementing those processes and procedures, and delivering lifecycle improvements through lessons learned.
Managing and reporting of design delivery performance for the time, cost, quality and other performance objectives as required from the supply chain, including the application of robust change management.
Interfacing with all functions to ensure project and statutory requirements are understood and implemented and recognised in the design.
Ensuring that third party requirements and approvals required during the design stage are discharged appropriately.
Engaging with other functions including commercial, procurement, project controls, construction delivery, H,S&W etc. to ensure that technical issues are suitably understood and recognised.
Holding regular collaborative meetings with the designers and wider teams to review and share problems / issues, promote innovative thinking, capture lessons learnt / best practices, provide technical support and ensure consistency of design.
Challenging the designers’ proposals with a view to de-risking technical solutions, to promote and facilitate the emergence of value engineering solutions, leading to reductions of quantities, costs and optimisation of the construction programme.
Coordinating the inputs and interfaces of the technical assurance team to ensure a verified, validated and configured design.
