About this role

  • Communication
  • Problem-solving
  • Teamwork

The role of a Senior Project Engineer is essentially construction project management. It is the responsibility of this role to manage the structural components of projects, including the construction of bridges, underpasses, gantries, and retaining walls.

The Senior Project Engineer oversees a team of engineers who assist with planning; so we look after the people who build the bridge, order all the materials they need to build it, make sure they build it to the drawings and specifications, make sure they build it safely so no one gets hurt and that we build it for the price we have said we would build it for. This role works between site and the office to make sure this happens.

The key tasks of a Senior Project Engineer are team management, program planning, financial controls, design interface and client liaison. However, coming up through the ranks, this role is mostly site based, focusing on controlling quality and formulating efficient construction methodologies with the Site Foreman.
