job description

Are you an internal designer looking for the next step in your career? Are you currently an internal architect and are looking to work more closely with clients/contractors? Would you want to be a Design Manager while doing what you enjoy most?

I am looking for a Design Manager to work with my client - a fit out main contractor. The role is to be based in the Head office in Central London to work closely with their clients, consultants and subcontractors to ensure that the clients get an "all-in" service. This team is known to have a strong track record of delivery their projects on time and therefore receive repetitive work from their clients.

The fit out projects would generally be around £1.5 Million to £3 Million and are very fast pace (generally turnaround of approximately 14 weeks).

As your job role you will be required to:

* Develop scope of work internally and for subcontractors
* Develop design release schedules to inform the construction programme
* Appraise subcontractor design capability and monitor performance from a design perspective.
* Review employers requirements & CDP's and implement design elements.
* Formulate technical solutions and provide support to other team members.
* Ability to value engineer where required.
* Ability to 'reverse value engineer' and look for opportunity to increase scope and contract value and introduce this at the optimum time to increase project profitability.
* Be proficient in the use of CAD and be able to produce drawings / details as part of the CAD team as and when required and to suit the changing workload.
* Production of construction details and working shop drawings, develop a technical library.
* Periodically review current working practices and establish more efficient methods of working, if applicable, to maintain and improve the overall efficiency of the department.
* Monitor design changes and manage to control time and cost
* Assist in obtaining client sign off on design scheme as contract goes live and site start commences

If you believe that you are suitable for this role, apply now.

Should this not be the opportunity that you are after but you are looking for a move, please give me a call to discuss other roles.
