Our Placements

One of our placements was a lead role on the refurbishment to a live distribution centre for a blue chip client based in Kent. This included a new mezzanine floor installation, full fit out to new internal offices, improvements to the conveyor systems, lighting, heating, air conditioning, roofing alterations, and M&E improvements. We placed the Construction Manager, Calin Dragut, on this £4m project and he was responsible for managing subcontractors, making sure the package was delivered in time with the programme. He successfully liaised with clients representatives, subcontractors and the design team.  He reviewed and method statements and risk assessments, ensured all health and safety documentation and project method statements were adhered to by all personnel on site. He also ensured all safety and environmental requirements are were met along all relevant permits and licenses were in place. He completed all aspects of work to the highest standard, on time and on budget. He led weekly progress meetings and management of site staff and produced weekly progress reports and weekly material cost report. He demonstrated a strong ability to lead and take ownership of delivering a complex project to the end client’s satisfaction.

“My name is Calin and I am  a Construction Site Manager. My first contact with Build Space was a year ago, when I was looking for a Construction Manager position. From the very beginning I was very pleased with the professionalism and helpfulness of the agent that I spoke with, Alex Poulter. Very soon I got a contract with RSR on a mixed refurbishment/new build project with a well-established blue chip client. The success that I had with this project is due, in a big part, to Build Space, for choosing the right company and project for me, based on a close and deep understanding of my training, qualification and demands, together with the construction company requirements. I am looking forward to work again with this recruitment agency and I am sure that I'll be contacted every time they have an appropriate offer for me.”
