Planning and Scheduling

‘My role involves supporting the Lead Planners on a major project with a large number of people working on site.  I assist in producing reports and schedules and help to co-ordinate all the contractors.  A lot of co-ordination and planning is needed to keep the project running efficiently and safely.’

Mark is currently working on the Dublin Waste to Energy project.  ‘I started the programme with a great group of graduates – we get on well together.  And I came into the Planning and Scheduling department with a group of guys who are very experienced.  They always encourage you to ask questions, and I do ask a lot of questions!’
