Construction Support Technician

What is a construction Support Technician
Construction support technicians have an extremely varied role. They will work alongside a number of professional and technical teams across different areas of a construction company to ensure the progression of a project. 
They primarily work with other construction contracting operations technicians in areas such as estimating, planning, buying, quantity surveying and design and build. Also, they are mainly responsible for supporting construction contracting teams with the inputting and progression of digital project information linked to resources using industry standard and specialist software in office and site environments.
Construction Support Technicians will also liaise with external organisations to ensure built environment activities and services are progressed at the right time, to high quality standards, with accurate designs and at competitive rates. 
Many who start their career as a construction support technician will upskill to become specialist technicians in either planning, quantity surveying, buying & procurement or estimating.
