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 £650m project recently secured by a Costain joint venture (“CVB”), to provide a new 7.2m diameter tunnel to divert waste from the Victorian built sewer from discharging into the Thames. The tunnel runs from Chambers Wharf to Abbey Mills where it connects with the Lee Tunnel. The works include: the main tunnel drive, a connection tunnel from Greenwich Pumping Station, 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 March 2016 and complete in March 2022.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the £4 billion super sewer project and the CVB joint venture delivering the East section to the tunnel. The project is entering the critical tunnelling phase and the quality team are critical in maintaining and improving the systems we have to ensure right first time and that the project is smoothly and effectively handed over. Within the Quality department we are looking for a graduate quality control engineer with a degree in civil engineering or similar.
We're looking for someone with a commitment to quality, either someone who is degree qualified, or has the equivilent experience:
