Costain helps to improve people’s lives by deploying technology-based engineering solutions to meet urgent national needs across the UK’s energy, water and transportation infrastructures.
Thames Tideway Tunnel, Main Works East is a £604m project recently secured by a Costain joint venture (“CVB”), to provide a new sewage storage and transfer tunnel from Chambers Wharf to Abbey Mills. It includes the main tunnel, a connection tunnel to Greenwich Pumping Station, various shaft constructions, a connection to the newly constructed Lee Tunnel project, and minor works at Beckton Sewage Treatment, all as part of an overall project to reduce sewer discharge overflows into the River Thames. The works are scheduled to commence on site in June 2016 and complete in March 2024.
CVB have engaged two consultancies to prepare temporary work designs for the project. In addition, we have a small temporary works design team preparing designs which can be delivered more efficiently than the consultancies are able to do. The CVB team requires additional designers with temporary works design experience to fulfil the tasks and responsibilities outlined below.
Within the Design Process, the TWD is specifically responsible for:
The TWD shall be required to;
Ensure that those responsible for on-site supervision receive full details of the design, including any limitations associated with it
Ensure that checks are made on the design at appropriate stages of construction or decommissioning covering the more critical factors
Obtain (usually from the permanent works designer) the criteria that aIlow the temporary works to be removed, the criteria for temporary loading, and so forth
Include these criteria within the design documents
When required review RAMS documents for consistency and compatibility with the design
