Following Hiten Blog

Over the past few weeks we’ve been following Hiten, to understand more about his role as Technical Assurance Manager.

Introducing Hiten

As a Technical Assurance Manager, I make sure all our work is compliant and the team is kept safe. I split my time between two roles: Design Manager/ Coordinator, and Temporary Works Coordinator. This means that I coordinate work and information between teams, and ensure projects run smoothly and safely.

I have worked for Skanska for nearly 14 years and joined Mindenhurst in 2018.

Design Manager

I act as a critical eye to the team, ensuring all our work is compliant. We work with a range of experts from utilities to landscaping, making sure our plans line up and do the job we need before submitting a planning application.
I’ve supported applications for major projects at Mindenhurst such as the new Loop Road and the DIO upgrade works.
Being a Design Manager on the Mindenhurst Development has been an incredible journey for me.

One of the things I enjoy the most about my job is collaborating with the design team to review designs, brainstorm ideas, and ultimately find the best design solutions. It is really rewarding to see our designs being constructed on site, which ultimately improve and transform the built environment

Careers in Construction

The best part of working in construction is seeing the positive impact of our work.
I studied Civil Engineering at university and joined Skanska as a placement student ahead of starting full time after graduating in 2010.
I’ve enjoyed great opportunities with Skanska. Before Mindenhurst, I worked on a 35-storey building known as The Scalpel in London, one of my favourites!

I would highly recommend working in construction since it’s an industry that offers endless variety. There’s never a dull moment as you get the opportunity to
work on different projects and face unique challenges. But what truly sets it apart is the opportunity to work with amazing teams of people who are passionate about what they do. From design to construction, you get to witness the full process unfold and be a part of bringing ideas to life.

Ensuring Safety

Recently, we’ve been renovating the exterior of St. Barbara’s Church. My role, as a Technical Assurance Manager was to ensure the safety of the project. We required scaffolding, which was designed by a third party company and checked by our in-house engineering specialists, Skanska Tech.  I made sure the project was delivered correctly on the ground.

At Mindenhurst, I am one of the Injury Free Environment Trainers. Maintaining an Injury Free Environment is a priority for the team. All members of staff, and trade contractors must take part in our training to protect the physical and mental wellbeing of the entire team. We aim to create an Injury Free Environment (IFE) in which nobody is harmed, it encourages us to look out for one another, so we all go home safely at the end of the day
