Role Description

NHBC has a great opportunity available for a Construction Technician (Architectural, MMC Systems). 

This role will require a presence in Milton Keynes but we will be open to candidates based from home that can accommodate the visits into headquarters, when necessary.

About the role:

The purpose of the job is to review submitted information on MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) to help determine if the MMC systems would be acceptable for use in homes covered by NHBC’s Buildmark warranty.

The job holder is to liaise with manufacturers, builders, design consultants and developers to understand the system and advise what further information is required. Having carried out the initial review, the job holder will communicate key details of the systems to colleagues around the business to help NHBC carry out technical risk management and effective inspections of homes built with MMC systems.

The job holder will retain an overview of MMC systems to track design changes as well as feedback from site or manufacture such that the implication of any changes are understood and effectively managed. The job holder will become the specialist in NHBC for particular MMC systems and will provide support to colleagues around the business in the effective risk management of homes built using the system.

The core involvement of the role will be to review drawings and technical information and assess the information against published standards, assessments by technical approvals bodies and good construction practice.
