Job description :

Our Process Mechanical Project Engineers are highly valued and are relied on to provide technical leadership in their area of expertise. They are one of the first to be consulted for any major construction project related to Process Mechanical (Process Cooling Water, Oil-Free Air, Process Vacuum systems etc.). Early in the project, they assess the feasibility of new projects. They later develop a more detailed scope through field walks and collaboration with facilities operations partners and project engineers from other disciplines. During detailed design and construction performed by our world-class supply chain partners, our Project Engineers serve as the Owner's representative to provide technical guidance and issue resolution. The project engineer manages the performance of the Integrators Architectural and Engineering/Owners design Consultant vendor in their discipline.
