Additionally, you will ensure appropriate project safety reviews are completed as required, both before and after approval, and utilize applicable Value- Based Engineering practices (VBEs) to optimize project scope and costs.
  • Successfully engaging across the organization, you will develop, establish, and maintain partnerships with assigned project manufacturing representatives to execute projects from initial scoping and funding, through detailed engineering and procurement, to startup and commissioning, and final documentation and closure. Additionally, you will request necessary construction and commissioning resources from Construction and others as required to install the scope of work.

Additionally, you will adhere to current corporate and plant requirements for equipment/materials specifications and vendor preferences.
  • Your unwavering commitment to follow through will be essential as you monitor and support construction activities to ensure that projects are completed per the design deliverables, quality standards, and plant requirements, and that pre-startup safety reviews are conducted. You will also follow through to ensure that Operations achieves a successful project startup, and that any project-related action items are completed, close projects per guidelines, and ensure proper documentation of files, records, databases, and drawings to meet regulatory and BASF requirements.
  • Working collaboratively, you will perform procurement activities as required, including preparing specifications, issuing requisitions, evaluating bids, and dealing with vendors. You will also work with Procurement and comply with applicable guidelines.
