Position Responsibilities:

  • Develops moderately complex conceptual designs, final designs, cost estimates and provides maintenance support for the mechanical phases of buildings, equipment installations, utility systems and grounds.
  • Reviews mechanical designs to assess compliance with customer requirements, building codes and applicable regulations by applying knowledge of construction principles, practices, and materials.
  • Ensures accuracy of drawing archives/libraries by reviewing contractor redlines. Identifies errors and documents construction changes to comply with regulatory requirements, facility standards, and record retention requirements.
  • Manages or supports construction projects by providing input on vendor selection; reviews contractor proposals; interfaces with government/regulatory agencies; monitors project progress and vendor/consultant performance.
  • Prepares and presents project information to ensure compliance with applicable construction documents and jurisdictional requirements and to meet project objectives.
  • Produces or procures detailed design documents.
  • Uses appropriate resources to produce project drawings, specifications, and permit application packages in accordance with project parameters.
  • Coordinates designs. Reviews and approves documents.
  • Translates customer requirements into design options with documents and estimates.
  • Identifies appropriate materials, equipment, and services by applying engineering principles and methodology.
  • With limited supervision, develops and updates design standards and site-specific operating procedures in order to establish common practices.
  • Provides input to strategic, short-term, and long-term infrastructure planning; completes studies; analyzes current conditions and future requirements; recommends capital improvements; gathers and analyzes data; and works with both internal and external customers in order to identify and assess alternatives and impacts.
  • Translates customer requirements into conceptual design by analyzing intended use/occupancy and desired aesthetics, conducting code research, developing preliminary design elements, determining interdisciplinary engineering support requirements, estimating resource costs/requirements, identifying materials, equipment, and services, and developing initial project schedule in order to establish project scope in response to customer requirements.
