Reporting to the Mechanical Senior Design Manager.
Mechanical Design Engineer assigned to work within the MEP Design Management team for the production of Mechanical design, including its interfaces and integration across the programme for the Shaft and Portals located within the Hs2 Geographical area located in the Central Section.
The Mechanical Design Engineer shall work with guidance to the review and management of the design information provided by Design House (the Consultants), the development and integration of Sub Contractor led designs and constructability reviews (managed by the Package Managers plus Others).
The resources and design accountabilities are provided from within the Supply Chain; the Design Engineer shall ensure that design production and acceptances are compliant with the project requirements and SCS goals.
Explore the designs produced to demonstrate consideration by designers for safe construction by design.
The role of the Mechanical Design Engineer is to assist the Lead Designer to work jointly with SCS’s partners to plan MEP design activities, defining detailed scope and enforcing a progressive approach to technical assurance, including supply chain responsibilities.
The production of design deliverables shall be managed by an agreed schedule. Deliverables are to satisfy high standards for safety, sustainability, constructability, quality and cost. All works must be delivered in accordance with the contract requirements and deviations recorded - as per an agreed change control process.
The Mechanical Design Engineer will input into and assist in providing status updates within the design planning and reporting systems for each stage of MEP design assurance.
The scope consists of multiple design components that span across varying systems. The Mechanical Design Engineer shall assist to contribute to the day-to-day interactions with internal stakeholders (e.g., Construction Teams, Logistics etc.) as well as external interfaces when require, such as the Employer and third-party stakeholders (e.g., Network Rail, London Underground, Thames Water etc.).
Working collectively with all other designers/ design managers, the Mechanical Design Engineer shall assist the coordination of design, processes, reporting and change control elements throughout design and installation phases.
Engage in lessons learnt, 360 and route cause reviews, internal and external, to inform the MEP systems design team in conjunction with constructability reviews, aligned with the project installation strategy.
Interrogate the Mechanical design and its interfaces to support procurement and construction, Safe by Design, minimise environmental impact with a view to future carbon neutrality, maximise opportunity for value engineering and check compliance to the scope.
Design Management will extend into the construction delivery phase of the project and up to testing and commissioning where all assurances must be reached to evidence full completion of the works. Design compliance is an inherent task for the design managers with the assistance of the Design Engineer in securing the progressive documentation of design compliance is a prime deliverable with input and coordination with the quality team.
