Is principally responsible
for co-ordinating construction projects and major design studies, such as : Project Management of large scale civil engineering works on surface and underground (eg LINAC 4, 107, 867, Restaurant No. 1 Extension, 513 Computer Centre Upgrade) in collaboration with external architects, consultants and contractors;
‘Master Planning’ for the surface facilities. This requires information gathering from all departments via the various existing committees (Site Committee, GTPE, SPOB etc) and with the aid of specialist external consultants prepare a long term strategy for the surface infrastructure. This Master Plan will also take account of ‘consolidation’ issues and requires a particularly close collaboration with PH;
Studies of large future projects such as CLIC, ILC, LHeC etc. This necessitates an international collaboration with other laboratories and across all fields within CERN;
Feasibility studies for potential schemes for all departments of CERN (eg LHC shafts for R2E).
