Lead Planner/ Planning Manager, Costain Ltd, Water, Wastewater, tunnels, defence, etc.

START Date: 
August, 2020
END Date: 
April, 2022

Recruited to lead on a major water pipeline project. Had 3 supporting planners, but unfortunately the "Production Managers" thought they were in control of the project and how it should be planned. Highlighted various issues on the project as there was a belief because it was linear that it could be handled like a production line, but there was no consideration for the 400km's of GI, SI, 1400 crossings, ecology, archaeology, land owners, restricted access, construction limited times due to transport and areas such as schools, significant logistics, etc.
