To secure a role as a Superintendent, New Zealand employers will expect you to hold a relevant degree, such as a Bachelor of Engineering, and significant experience working on Civil Infrastructure development sites.
The day-to-day responsibilities for a Superintendent can include any of the following:
Review project plans and proposals and advise ways of saving costs and time
Preparing construction and development project schedules
Communicating project plan to onsite Labourers and contractors
Managing site personnel to ensure project runs to timeframes and budgets
Updating Project Managers, senior managers and clients of project progress or problems
Troubleshooting project problems and putting forward solutions
Ensure Health & Safety and regulatory standards are adhered to
Train and manage Labourers
For most Superintendents, the next logical step is to move towards senior management or Project Management, and eventually securing the position of Civil Construction Manager.
