Interface Coordinator (Process/Mechanical/Piping/Plumbing/Electrical/Instrumentation/Structural/HVAC) - Houston, TX / Greenville, SC - 15 Openings

We are requesting several Interface Coordinators for the Client project. All positions would be preferred in Houston, but potentially acceptable in Greenville. Any candidates interested in working remote would require extensive Interface experience and would be by exception not the norm. We would prefer that these positions be filled by engineers, but designers and engineering specialist will be considered if they have the right skill set. As for the labor category, please use the Project Engineer, if the candidate is an engineer. If the candidate is not an engineer, you can submit them against one of the designer positions.

Job Overview:
As an Interface Coordinator at our dynamic organization, you will play a pivotal role as the primary liaison between GP Client, clients, and third parties for all non-client furnished services. Your responsibilities will encompass essential project and engineering management duties, emphasizing the establishment of an execution framework that aligns with interface management responsibilities, safety, and quality.
Interface management/coordination in projects is crucial for ensuring that different components of a project work together seamlessly. It focuses on managing the interactions between various project scopes, which might include different systems, teams, or contractors.
A quick overview of this includes:
Defining Interfaces: This involves identifying and defining the points of interaction between different components of the construction project, such as between electrical and mechanical systems or between construction phases.
Coordination and Communication: Ensuring that there is clear communication and coordination between different teams or systems that interact. This might involve regular meetings, detailed documentation, and the use of collaborative tools.
Resolving Conflicts: Interface management also includes resolving conflicts that arise from overlapping work or misalignments between different scopes of the project. This can involve mediation and adjustments to schedules or plans.
Documentation: Keeping detailed records of how interfaces are managed is important. This documentation helps in understanding the flow of the project and is crucial for resolving any disputes that may arise.
Risk Management: Proactively identifying and managing risks associated with interfaces can prevent delays and cost overruns. This involves anticipating potential issues and planning mitigation strategies. Effective interface engineering and management can help in reducing project risks, improving efficiency, and ensuring that the project is completed on time and within budget.
