PTC Systems Ltd are looking for an enthusiastic Construction Manager to join our dynamic and growing major projects team based in central London.

Job description

To plan, direct, and coordinate a wide variety of activities on structured cabling projects. Construction managers may oversee an entire project or just part of one. They schedule and coordinate all design and construction processes, including the selection, appointing, and oversight of specific engineers or service partners, but they do not do any of the actual installation.

Construction managers are salaried or self-employed managers who oversee installation supervisors and engineers.

These managers coordinate and supervise the installation process from the conceptual development stage through to final completion, making sure that the project gets done on time and within budget. They often work with Project Managers, engineers, architects, and others who are involved in the installation process. Given the designs for buildings, construction managers oversee the planning, scheduling, and implementation of those designs.

Some large construction projects, such as an office building or industrial complex, are often too complicated for one person to manage. These projects are divided into many segments: MER, SER, Backbone Cabling, Horizontal Cabling, Termination, testing, snagging. Construction managers may be in charge of one or more of these activities.

Construction managers determine the best way to get materials to the site and the most cost-effective plan and schedule for completing the project. They divide all required site activities into logical steps, budgeting the time required to meet established deadlines. This may require sophisticated estimating and scheduling techniques and use of computers with specialised software.

Construction managers determine the labour requirements and, in some cases, supervise or monitor the hiring and dismissal of engineers. They oversee the performance of all engineers and are responsible for ensuring that all work is completed on schedule.

Construction managers direct and monitor the progress of installation activities, sometimes through supervisors or other construction managers. They oversee the delivery and use of materials, tools, and equipment; worker productivity and safety; and the quality of installation. They are responsible for obtaining all necessary permits and, depending upon the contractual arrangements, direct or monitor compliance with building and safety regulations, other regulations, and requirements set by the projects professional team.
