I am Meeta Sandhu and my role is Senior Project Engineer for Temporary works at HS2.
I carry out design and site assurance for the temporary works along routes in the Birmingham area Primarily, I work with Contractors to ensure that the design for temporary works is delivered in accordance with procedures.
I never have any typical days as my work can be so varied week to week. However, I have four Principal Contractors to look after in terms of temporary works assurance, as a regular occurrence for each of them I would hold a weekly temporary works review meeting and set aside time to review design submissions.
Apart from that, I could be doing anything from going on sites to carryout assurance, being involved in interdisciplinary reviews and readiness reviews, providing training on temporary works, producing, updating or improving procedures, attending internal HS2 meetings to report on progress or issues, or working on the HS2 Values weeks or Awards.
Making these relationships and having these opportunities has certainly made HS2 an exciting and enjoyable place to work: if you want to have variety in your work or meet a fantastic group of people, apply for a job with us!
