Our client is seeking a Site Access Coordinator who will form the interface between the site team and appropriate stakeholder (normally the landowner or tenant) on the Lower Thames Crossing Project.
The Site Access Coordinator will have in-depth knowledge and understanding of the Specification Schedules such that they can convey a comprehensive description of the proposed works to the parties involved including the anticipated entry requirements and dates, and the duration of works. Involvement will begin in the early planning stages of the ground investigations to review the access requirements and establish the details of the stakeholders involved. Access/egress points and proposed routes will need to be established during site walkovers undertaken prior to the ground investigation (GI) works commencing, and then a liaison process commenced to agree entrance/egress locations and routes. The site walkovers will need to be carried out in conjunction with the Employers land and property team, and follow appropriate Health and Safety protocols.
Continuous performance monitoring will be required during site works. This will require continued liaison with landowners or tenants and other parties as necessary to establish and maintain relationships. The Site Access Coordinator will be responsible for identifying any practises that are deficient and suggesting alternative approaches to maintain good relationships. The role continues throughout the duration of the site works and beyond to ensure good relations are maintained.
