Reporting to the Project Manager and responsible for executing the construction scope of the project while organising the construction team.

Set of activities:
-During the Study Phases (Pre-Study, Feasibility- and Final Study):
*Commenting Overall Plot Plan and Layout (elevations, area and buildings plot plan, equipment lay-out, road plan and pipe-racks routing)
*Commenting of site preparation and levelling drawings
*Conduct Value Improving Practices (VIP), like constructability review / develops modularisation where relevant (pipe racks, high towers in case of congested areas)
*Participation in early 3D-model reviews
*Description of Temporary Facilities
*Development of Precom- and Commissioning philosophy
*Development of Mechanical Completion philosophy (including requirement for computerised system) and Hand-Over principles
*Preparation and review of estimates. (scaffolding cost, heavy lifting crane cost, site preparation cost)
*Development of HSE strategy
*Development of Construction philosophy / Construction Plan
*Development of Project Construction Execution Plan
*Participating in setting up bidders list for subcontractors
Development of RCD (Requisition control Diagram)

-During the Execution Phase (Detailed engineering + Construction):
*Further develop above initiatives
*People: Mobilizes the field organization and takes part in selection process for personnel.
*Contracting: reviews subcontract packages and participates in bid evaluation process; participates in audits of subcontractors before final award; guides the contractor when arriving at site and coordinates regular meeting to avoid interferences.
Coordinates the interfaces with existing facilities (tie-in packages)
*HSE: conducts a Pre-Construction Hazard Study (Hazard Study 4) to identify hazardous activities and implement preventive actions.
*HSE: develops and implements the necessary tools and procedures to secure compliance with the Borealis' Life Saving Rules. Ensures that the PTW (permit to work) systems functions perfectly, with the necessary method statements and risk analysis where relevant.
*HSE: ensures that HSE requirements are met during construction; be an ambassador in realizing sufficient reporting of near misses, engagement walks, to achieve the HSE Objectives. Similar for the environmental side.
*HSE: conducts a Pre-Commissioning Hazard Study prior to Commissioning (Hazard Study 5) and introduction of hazardous chemicals in the new installation.
*Quality: drives the development of the Mechanical Completion database-system based on systems Process Dynamic, Non-Process Dynamic, Non-Process Static, with relevant ITP's (Inspection and test plan) per discipline and drives the contractors to use them properly.

*Project Control Schedule: coordinates with procurement the equipment deliveries are not exceeding ROS-dates (required on site), to keep focus on the critical path.
*Contracting: compares installed versus planned quantities to ensure correct payments.
*Change orders: minimize and verifies change orders, with impact on cost and schedule; looks for opportunities to absorb within the same time-frame.
Drives field-engineering to work out changes or correct design deficiencies.
*Construction: conducts regular high level reviews to identify opportunities to improve constructability, to avoid interferences, to accommodate contractors better, to improve the workflow of material (from warehouse to field, with short period lay down areas)
*Hand-over: drives the construction till DAC (discipline acceptance) followed with Pre-commissioning activities, punching and correction of punch points until MC (Mechanical Completion). Hands over to the Commissioning Manager and supports his activities.
*Documentation: administers the as-built to assure final documentation is representing the field conditions.
*Close-out report: describes the construction part.
