Introduction to Planning
Planning is a multi-skilled career path, which gives you exposure to the whole life cycle of a project from inception through to project handover and facilities management. Planners get involved with the entire project team and develop the overall time scale for the project using project management software which deliver detailed programmes together with a comprehensive suite of performance measures and associated project controls. Planners have a fundamental role on the successful delivery on all of our projects.
You will gain a working knowledge of construction techniques, sequences, methodologies and processes on live LOR projects. This will involve progress measurement on live projects, maintaining programmes and other time related materials, which will facilitate performance measurement through robust project controls and accurate reporting and forecasting.
This discipline is ideal for you if you are highly organised and methodical and can work with people at all levels of the business. We will work closely with you to develop clear career goals, expand your skills and assist you in working towards the relevant chartership. As a planner the expectation is that you will work towards becoming a chartered member of the Institute of Building.
As part of the Planning function, you will closely interface with all project stakeholders from clients, designers through to supply chain partners as well as our direct workforce.
