From facilities delivering life-saving therapies and ensuring clean water to enabling the connection of people through all modes of transportation and providing access to technology – we're integrating a multitude of these solution elements to build the smart environments of tomorrow.

Start your Jacobs career with a company that inspires and empowers you to deliver your best work so you can evolve, grow and succeed – today and into tomorrow.

Your Impact:

The Restoration and Renewal Programme (R&R) has been established to tackle the significant work needed to protect the heritage of the Palace of Westminster and ensure it can continue to serve as home to the UK Parliament in the 21st century and beyond.

Given the poor condition of the fabric and systems of the Palace, the House of Commons Commission and House of Lords House Committee agreed that a major programme of restoration and renewal work must be carried out to protect and preserve the legacy of the Palace for future generations.

The R&R Programme Implementation Planning Team includes a group of Construction and Logistics Managers. This logistics manager role will provide essential logistics modelling and process design support for the Construction Logistics Strategy and the development of the schedule and cost estimate for the design schemes for the RIBA stages and the Business Case Outputs. The projects within the Programme will involve a variety of construction and logistics works derived from a design being developed around a number of technical disciplines. The challenge is to develop the most effective approach to delivering these works.

A key objective for the Delivery Authority is to complete the works while minimising the disruption to the users. Consequently, much of the work for this role will focus on developing the most effective combined workflow with technical specialists, to minimise disruption to users and determine the associated logistics requirements.

The logistics plan will use the estimated workforce and equipment for restoration and renewal, and describe the associated access, space and activity sequence required. An important part of developing the logistics plan will be participating in workshops with the various disciplines; conservation, design, engineering, and referring to the technical studies produced on the Programme.
