Reviews assigned project(s) after awarded to Austin to help define project scope, assist in determining plan for successful delivery, coordinates engineering pull planning, and helps develop schedules, and budgets. Regularly works with the project manager and sometimes in direct contact with the client representative to obtain the more detailed information required to assure that engineering decisions on project/implementation meet client operational needs and are in line with the contractual scope of work. Coordinates overall engineering effort across disciplines, reviews technical design conditions and makes recommendation back to the responsible engineer related to design improvement concepts, manages work effort and project team. Documents all changes in scope, see that the project manager (or client) understands the consequent changes in cost and time and that the project manager (or client) authorizes the changes, then coordinates all changes between the various departments and with the field. Holds regularly scheduled (usually weekly) project status check in meetings to ensure that project is progressing and that team is coordinated. Works with Manager of Engineering & Design to assemble and plan the assignment of the best possible resources to a project effort.

This requires the application of standard design engineering techniques, procedures, and criteria where the scope is already outlined in the form of contract drawings, specifications, one-line drawings and component estimates derived during the Step 1 (preliminary engineering) process. The candidate must be fully competent in all conventional aspects of design engineering and be capable of planning and conducting tasks requiring independent judgment in the evaluation, selection, and substantial adaptation and modification of standard design engineering techniques, procedures, and criteria.

Description

TYPICAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
Develops specifications, working drawings, instructions, and other related documents of a complex project of moderate size. Reviews vendor bids and drawings for major components to be used in the system to assure compliance with specifications, code and requirements of the project. Reviews drawings and evaluates the need for design changes and makes appropriate recommendations. Consults with construction personnel concerning design constructability as related to field conditions, sequencing, and scheduling of construction activities. Ensures that production of drawings, specifications, reports, and analyses meet scope, schedule, cost and quality requirements. May plan, schedule, coordinate, and oversee the work of lower-level engineers who assist with particular projects. Responsible for keeping current on new mechanical products and must be able to judge their suitability for specific uses. Should compile and communicate with said product representatives on a regular basis. Regularly does code review analysis at project initiation to determine special circumstances within the project that may create design or constructability issues.
QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:
