(USA BASED) Tunnel Design/ Project Co-Ordinator (/VAC/56077) London, England

Salary: USD170000 - USD210000 per annum + Relocation + Benefits





The Project is a large, deep, sewer tunnel

The 23 foot inside diameter tunnel is approximately 27,000 linear feet long, excavated approximately 60 to 140 feet below grade in soft ground conditions and will be supported by a precast tunnel liner. The tunnel system will allow the captured combined sewage to be stored and conveyed by gravity to an Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant (AWWTP) for treatment prior to discharge to the River.

 The major facilities of permanent work associated with the Project to be designed and constructed are include also shaft and hydraulic internal structures, diversion chambers, diversion sewers, adits, retaining work, green infrastructures, mechanic and electrical systems.


DB Coordinator role and responsibilities

 The Design Coordinator will be a key position reporting directly to the Project Manager, while also maintaining communication directly with the Client on issues involving the coordination effort between Owner and Design-Builder design responsibilities. His role includes maintaining continual integration between the design and construction teams by linking Construction Manager with Design Manager. He oversees the proper sequence of design document preparation to keep the construction schedule on track, and signs off on all Advanced Design Submittals. He will also coordinate constructability reviews, quality control efforts, design support during construction, and partnership efforts with DC Water through the implementation of Project task forces. The Design and Build Coordinator will report on a periodic basis to the Joint Venture Executive Committee on any issues related to the integration of the design and construction activities.


The Design and Build Coordinator will also have responsibility for the Design-Builder’s own technical, or engineering, department. This staff of construction engineers, led by the Engineering Manager, will liaise with the Design Engineers and support the field construction efforts. The construction team, including the Construction Manager, will provide constructability review during the design and provide an additional check of the design drawings. This staff will then translate the design drawings into construction drawings for the Construction Manager and his superintendents.
