A Group Renovation Works Manager, Cédric is also called a Renovation Works Engineer or Renovation Works Supervisor at the Group level.
He develops a property project within a budget set by the Design and Projects department, in keeping with a work schedule agreed upon with the project owner. He is involved with the project owner from the signing of the contract to the lifting of reservations once the building has been delivered.
As a Works Engineer, Cédric has a major responsibility: ensuring safety.
It’s up to him to implement all means necessary to enforce safety rules on the site.
Every day, Cédric is in constant contact with the Property Projects Manager or the Business Engineer.
He also collaborates with all GA support service teams: Process Planning department, Design Office and Purchasing, Accounting and Legal departments.
From an operational standpoint, the job of Works Supervisor requires Cédric to manage the relationship with the project owner, organise site meetings with service partners and enforce the schedule for all trades.
Cédric is also responsible for the budget handed to him by the Design and Projects department. He is in charge of confirming it or not, amending it if need be, and is committed to the final margin.
And of course, his goal is delivery without reservation.
