Growing company, with growing pains. Has potential to be market leader.
Long busy days, varied work from managing the installation of drainage, street lights, and protection relocation of existing underground services i.e., power, communication, sewer, gas.
My main role was to make sure contractors did not damage existing services. I was responsible for issuing permits to dig for the whole project, which was 3km in length No one could work anywhere unless I gave the ok to do so, which required me to examine extent of works and identify any possible conflicts and provide a supervised plan so work could be done safely. The project was in Albany Auckland so there were many sensitive services that would have devastating consequences if they were damaged. While working on this project no existing services were damaged. I was also responsible for the installation and relocation of substantial new underground services.
I had a good relationship with all co workers and sub contractors I managed.
Most important lesson I learned is to keep detailed accurate records every day, stay on top of paper work.
hardest part of the job was working away from home. Lived in Hamilton, i have a 6 kids and being a part time Dad and Husband is difficult.
Most enjoyable part of the job is seeing your work completed and knowing that it was done well and looks good.
