HS2 Ground Investigation Engineer
What does an HS2 Ground Investigation Engineer do?
A typical day for an HS2 Ground Investigation Engineer can include:
- Planning and monitoring detailed field investigations – this involves drilling and analysing samples of the ground
- Making sure working conditions for your team are safe and healthy
- Advising on problems with the ground that might affect how the railway is built
- Helping hire contractors to carry out GI work
- Managing staff, including engineering geologists, geotechnical engineers, consultants and contractors
- Managing a department budget
- Reviewing historical information and reports about the site
- Studying and understanding HS2 designs for structures like tunnels and bridges.
Typical hours are 8:30 to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. Sometimes you’ll need to visit teams on site, more so as HS2 gets closer to being built.
