* Create and manage well considered design programmes that enable information to be provided timely, accurately and within budget to place orders;
* Appoint and brief design consultants through a bespoke scope of services to deliver the correct level of information for any particular project;
* Obtain early approval to Planning consent conditions, achieve 'Unconditional' approval to Building Regulations applications and obtain other relevant approvals to eliminate risk;
* Act as a catalyst to turn raw data into usable information that meets our programme and control value;
* Develop strong working relationships internally and externally by spending appropriate time on site;
* Liaise with Pre-construction & Production Teams to resolve design queries promptly and comprehensively;
* Assist with providing 'as built' records and other documentary evidence on completion of the works.
