The HPC Project is a complex industrial endeavour; it will take a decade to build with multiple construction phases to be completed. The ultimate goal of the HPC Project is to safely deliver a completed plant with lifetime records, to the right quality, on time, on budget and with nuclear safety considered in every step, to enable successful operation. The HPC Construction Director has identified the need for a Senior Nuclear Island Construction Lead to manage and lead the delivery of Nuclear Island for the HPC Project to ensure consistency in delivery to the nuclear safety, quality, efficiency, schedule, and cost commitments.
The job purpose is to provide leadership and coordination for the management and organisation of the construction teams and deliverables (including engineering) for both Units of the HPC project. This will include heavy interface and coordination with Bylor, the Civil Works contractor at the site.
