Your Opportunity

An opportunity exists for a highly organized and flexible Technician to become part of our dynamic team.  Our Water sector, which brings together many of the world’s top engineers and scientists, sees water a bit differently—as a single holistic system rather than as unconnected networks divided by jurisdictional boundaries. We use this perspective to help communities tap into water’s potential. Throughout the life cycle of capture, use, reuse, and discharge, our team optimizes every facet of a water system. Whether a project calls for planners, designers, construction managers, or facility operators, we have the right experts to provide creative, yet practical, water solutions. Through our cost-effective strategies, we’re helping communities increase their water efficiency and protect their water resources for future generations. Join our team as we create new ways to tap into water’s vast potential. 


The Water group provides client-focused solutions in planning, design, bidding, and construction administration with treatment plants and linear utility projects. We also provide engineering electrical and instrumentation, mechanical process, equipment, and materials specification. Within our positive team environment, our employees enjoy great career advancement opportunities and the chance to work on a variety of projects including Wastewater Treatment Plant, Water Treatment Plant, water transmission, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, planning, and Buildings development projects. 

Your Duties

We are seeking a professional and dynamic Resident Site Inspector/Intermediate CAD Technician to join our Water group in Waterloo Ontario. The ideal candidate should possess at least 5 - 10 years of related experience in planning, detailed design and construction services associated with municipal and related infrastructure. As the successful candidate, you will be responsible for:


  • Undertaking resident or part time site review services under the direction of a Project Manager or Senior Technologist; and
  • Preparing engineering drawings for water and wastewater infrastructure and facilities projects;
  • Preparing presentation graphics;
  • Preparation of contract documents and specifications
  • Coordinating projects between Project Managers, CAD staff and others; and
  • Preparing Report figures (drawings).

The successful candidate will coordinate project drawings with Project Managers, CAD staff and others; ensure project needs are met in a timely and effective manner; liaise with drafting coordinators supporting other disciplines; participate in design and preparation of engineering drawings using the appropriate internal and external standards; prepare plan, section, detail, schematic and construction drawings; and ensure all drawings are in accordance with client specific requirements and company procedures.  You are required to be proficient with AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Your Capabilities and Credentials


  • Experience and a willingness to undertake resident and part time construction review;
  • Diploma in Architectural Technology, or Computer Aided Design and Drafting Technology, or Civil Engineering Technology;
  • Proficient AutoCAD Civil 3D skills;
  • You possess strong communication skills, both written and verbal, along with excellent interpersonal and organizational abilities and a willingness to work in a team atmosphere;
  • You are highly organized, and demonstrate a flexible approach to work assignments.  In addition, previous experience in a computerized office environment using Microsoft Office and other Windows based applications would be considered an asset;
  • Experience in reading and interpreting construction and legal drawings; and
