  • Leading and preparing conceptual design options reviews  in order to develop innovative and cost effective design solutions.
  • Preparing detailed technical specifications, and special provisions.
  • Providing leadership and direction to CAD designers and junior engineers for design and drawing preparation.
  • Performing internal QC reviews for detailed design of bridges and other structures.
  • Preparing cost estimates for concept and detailed design.
  • Tender document preparation and providing engineering services during construction including conducting field reviews.
  • Preparing technical memorandums, reports, and preparing proposals.
  • Regular collaboration with colleagues in other offices and different disciplines in an integrated and fast paced design environment.

Your Capabilities and Credentials

As the ideal candidate you will possess the following minimum qualifications: 

  • Bachelor degree in Structural or Civil Engineering degree.
  • Must be a registered or eligible for registration as a Professional Engineer in British Columbia.
  • Minimum of 10 years of experience in the design and analysis of highway bridges and other transportation structures (pedestrian bridges, retaining walls, large culverts, snow sheds, ferry docks and ramps, sign bridges etc.), which must be North American projects, with British Columbia project experience strongly preferred.
  • Strong seismic design experience is essential.
  • Working knowledge and recent design experience using the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure Bridge Standards and Procedures.
  • Experience in steel, concrete, and timber design is desired.
