The WorkFace Planner coordinates with and provides WorkFace construction knowledge to project schedulers, engineers, superintendents and managers. He/she acts as liaison between the project controls manager and workforce supervision. Experience with air separation projects is highly recommended. This project is already in the field execution stage, with no engineering work packages developed. A complete overhaul of the construction execution strategy is being undertaken, leading to the need for strong work planning.

This position fits within the owner's project organization, reporting to the owner's construction management team and directly influencing the owner's contractor.
