In the construction phase it monitors and manages the project execution.

The company has increased its turnover in the Benelux by 10-fold in the last 4 years ! And is characterized by al level of professionalism that is rarely seen in the building/construction industry, a structured and uniform way of working, a friendly culture and a strong focus on personal development by means of trainings and giving people autonomy in an early stage.

The project manager reports into the overall program manager based in the US.

The work that needs to be performed can be civil, piping, mechanical, process and/or E&I. All work is outsourced to contractors. You will mainly have the task to discuss the scope of the work that needs to be performed with customer representatives, liaise with the engineering team in Rumania, give your input for Requests for Quotation (RFQ), evaluate quotations, monitor the work being performed and evaluate the results of the work performed before hand over.

You will give your input for the reporting on KPI’s, both to internal and external stakeholders. You will be based in Gent and will also work from the company’s headquarters in Leuven.

Extension projects are outsourced on an EPC(M) basis.

Beside the usual project variables like budget, planning and quality, safety gets a major amount of attention. Mainly by means of trainings, clear procedures and a lot of communication about- and reporting on safety.
