About the project

A flag ship project Circa £400 million pounds in value consisting of two new facilities for BAE Systems in Barrow-in-Furness.  Works include concrete core, steelwork, envelope, mechanical and electrical systems and internal fit-out.


What will you
be doing?

An ideal framework for the successful candidate to gain understanding and experience of the NEC3 form of contract.  Specific duties will include take-offs, review and assessment of change as well as supporting the commercial team in the administration of subcontracts. 




A commercial graduate will be placed onto a project during the construction phase to support the project team through a range of activities. Key activities will include:

·  Contracts and procurement: recording and monitoring variations to the contract, and ascertaining the costs involved.

· Measurement: Measuring construction works on site also involves recording progress and valuing the work, based on agreed contract rates.

· Cost forecasting: This involves forecasting the final costs of projects or work packages (individual contracts within a project). You will review tender documents, contract variations, and use this to calculate the final figure payable.

·  Monitoring profit and loss: This involves compiling monthly reports to show the progress of a project. Tasks include recording costs incurred and future costs, producing summaries showing monies coming in and going out, monitoring risks, and reporting on factors likely to affect profitability.

·  Liaising with customers: You will need to attend meetings with customers and advise them on any commercial issues that arise. Throughout a project you will probably meet with the customer either every week or every fortnight and these meetings may last for between one and three hours.
