Role Overview:

The CAD Designer is responsible for producing 3D models and 2D drawings in Site Engineering Team (SET) within the quality standards of the Project, while interfacing with the relevant stakeholders to perform the work allocated.

The CAD Designer will be supporting the design change management during the construction and collecting and consolidating information from the site contractors, in order to issue As-Built models or drawings for the Client organisation.

Nature and Scope:

The Design is delivered by designers and accepted by the technical lead in our Client organisation. Once accepted, the design is released to site for construction and to Site Engineering to manage any design changes raised by the construction contractor on site.

Being part of our clients Engineering Directorate and working on a day to day basis on site with our clients Construction Team, Site Engineering Team (SET) is responsible for managing design changes as well as for reviewing and accepting some site-specific design documents. When deemed necessary, design issues are forward to designer representative sitting on site for resolution.

Site Engineering Team (SET) is also responsible for management of the site construction configuration and for the issuance of As-Built information for the Clients.

The sites As-Built are a revised set of deliverables, defined as 3D Models or  2D Drawings, handed over to the Client upon completion of a project or a  consistent part of a programme. Site contractors provide redlined 2D drawings and client updates the related 3D model. They are a representation of the works undertaken incorporating all changes made outside construction tolerances during the construction or the commissioning process. They show with regard to construction tolerance the constructed dimensions, geometry, and location of all elements of the work completed under the contract.
