Job Description

Overview

Education: Bachelor or Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from an accredited university is required. 

 

Registration: Professional Engineering registration is highly preferred or may be required.

 

Experience: This position requires 10 to 15 years of relevant industrial experience in mechanical engineering.  

 

Generally responsible for performing all aspects for a complete design of complex mechanical engineering assignments. Work at this level requires extensive progressive experience in mechanical engineering and involves applying advanced engineering techniques and analysis. This work will be performed under general supervision.

Responsibilities

Primary responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • Familiarity with and utilizing department design and drafting standards.
  • Familiarity with project scope, specifications and design criteria upon assignment to a project task team.
  • On-site assistance during startup.
  • Accomplishing engineering activities such as stress analysis, construction specifications, material procurement specifications, calculations and piping estimates.
  • Developing conceptual layouts and cost studies as necessary to determine the simplest, most efficient approach to solving engineering tasks at hand.
  • Producing estimate level preliminary designs and material take-offs suitable for the level of the estimate being performed on a project.
  • Producing detail design calculations and sketches for materials of construction associated with the project. Calculations produced will be neatly prepared and organized for efficient checking by others and efficient use by drafters/designers for preparing drawings and as a deliverable when required.
  • Assisting the drafting group in resolving routine layout and detailing problems. It is your responsibility to furnish sufficient sketches and details necessary for completion of engineering drawings.
  • Consulting with design leaders from other disciplines to ensure the smooth flow of vital information necessary for the scheduled completion of the project.
  • Reviewing and checking vendor drawings and other discipline drawings for mechanical input.
  • Producing designs with efficient use of construction materials with an overall emphasis on ease of construction and completed product meeting the expectations of the client.
  • Checking calculations made by other engineers to ensure accuracy, conformance to codes, specifications, design criteria and conformance to good engineering practice.
  • Advising the senior engineer concerning design or scope changes, which have been identified.
  • Assisting other engineers in developing and assembling scopes, drawings and specifications into a “package” for mechanical purchase inquiries issued for procurement of equipment, materials or subcontract pricing.
  • Developing construction specifications.
  • Reviewing fabrication drawings and other construction submittals for conformance to engineering drawings and specifications.
  • Performing fieldwork necessary to gather field data, check tie-ins and provide construction support.
  • Provide technical guidance to less experienced drafting and engineering personnel in the department.
  • Knowledgeable of the discipline specific methods, practices and techniques required to engineer, design and construct process and manufacturing projects.
  • Recognize and communicate scope and design changes promptly.
  • Coordinate work activities with other teammates and the discipline lead.
  • Applying advanced engineering techniques and analysis to complex designs.
  • Estimating and scheduling professional service hours and assessing the progress and quality of mechanical work.
  • Complete understanding of the skills and experience required to perform engineering and design functions.
  • Ability to identify and develop work sharing packages for interoffice execution support. Provide leadership to ensure communication and execution of work within scope, schedule and budget.

Qualifications

  • Knowledge of design standards and codes.
  • Knowledge, application and specification of materials.
  • Development of piping material and material procurement specifications.
  • Knowledge of good design practices for sizing all piping systems.
  • Sizing of compressible fluid piping systems.
  • Flexibility and stress analysis of all piping systems.
  • Specify criteria for and select piping specialty items.
  • Design of complex process and utility systems.
  • Knowledge of manual valve sizing, use and application.
  • Knowledge of HVAC (airside and waterside) system application and design codes.
  • Knowledge of application of piping supports and restraints.
  • Identification of need, application and specification of safety valves and devices to maintain the mechanical integrity of process/utility systems.
  • Identification of need, application and specification of steam traps and liquid drainers.
  • Estimating mechanical/piping construction quantities from conceptual documents.
  • Knowledge of other disciplines deliverable development to ensure coordination of design efforts.
  • Knowledge and understanding of schedule constraints and information requirements for the production of all mechanical deliverables.
  • Ability to accurately estimate completion of assigned tasks.
  • Ability to develop a construction cost estimate, a detailed engineering schedule and a man-hour budget for a small project or an area for a larger project.
  • Ability to determine construction material quantities.
  • Knowledge and ability to apply company engineering design and CAD drafting standards.
  • Ability to lead a small team to deliver on commitments.

  • Proficient in the use of Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook.
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written.
  • Excellent presentation skills.

    Virtual team skills and cross divisional relationships are developed, and able to provide interoffice execution leadership and support.
