My client is seeking a Design Manager. The organisation is a regional West midlands main building contractor who have a reputation in delivering high quality schemes ranging from £5M to £25M. The company carry out work across varying sectors; however, their current reputation is strong in the sectors of high rise Apartments, Student Accommodation & Education.

As the Design Manager, you will split your time between 2 construction sites and the head office - predominately overseeing all Design activities and getting involved with pre-construction when needed to.

The selected candidate will be responsible for the management of the Design Team and Design Process. This applicant must also be able to demonstrate their commercial and contractual awareness. Early engagement with the client will be necessary- to advise correctly, ensuring the design is developed satisfactorily.

Duties will include:
  • Proven design management skills
  • Control design processes

  • Experience of working with BIM or understanding of the software would be an advantage, but not a prerequisite for the position.
  • Awareness of programme constraints and driving works to meet targets
