A Pipelayer installs pipework for water, sewerage and storm water systems. You’ll connect a network of pipes to buildings and other structures during construction phases and ensure all piping meets industry standards. You may have to repair piping systems or connect additional pipework for building extensions. You may have to plan piping systems, lay and connect pipes and seal joints.
Pipelayers have a physically demanding role and you’ll spend most of your time outdoors. You’ll need to be able to follow a plan and work as part of a team. Pipelayers need to pay attention to small details and should be good at problem solving.
