Job Opportunity: Site Engineer – Vacancy Fulfilled

Site Engineer

BHC is one of the UK’s leading Structural Steel Fabrication and Construction companies supplying and erecting fabricated steel nationwide within the UK and Ireland.

Due to expansion we currently have a vacancy for a Site Engineer.

The Site Engineer is responsible for ensuring the successful handover of structural steelwork. This includes ensuring the plumb, line and level of the steelwork compiles with the contracted tolerance and issuing of the handover certificate.

As part of the role, the Site Engineer is expected to carry out the following:

  • As built Bolt Surveys.
  • Cast in Plate Surveys.
  • As built Steel Surveys.
  • Plumb and Lining of Steel.
  • Casting of Bolts “Dead” (no cones).
  • Setting Out.

The Engineer must be competent in the use of Total Stations for both Surveying and Setting Out. In particular, experience with Leica Robotic Total Stations is advantageous.

The successful candidate will be able to take survey data and complete As Built Surveys using CAD.

An element of manual work such as the below is expected:

  • Plumbing of steel by tightening bolts.
  • Moving steel into position using heavy hammer and wedges.
  • Setting of Bolts.

The Engineer must be conscientious, hardworking and driven.

Site Engineers at BHC are responsible for several jobs at any given time and are expected to be able to travel between them, therefore a driving license is essential. In addition to this you will also require a current CSCS card. Please note that depending on the locations of projects working away from home may be required.

Experience in the use of Total Stations for Surveying and Setting Out is essential although not necessarily with a Leica Robotic Instrument. An Engineer with a sound fundamental understanding of Setting out and Surveying will quickly be able to adapt to using any instrument. A basic knowledge of CAD will also be useful.
