The Project Engineer (PE) will be responsible for the design development of project facilities to meet the design requirements for all systems, structures, and components, through customer and end user review and approval. The PE will supervise multi-disciplinary engineering activity on the GBSD project for the assigned scope of work. The PE will also assume technical responsibilities for interpreting, organizing, executing, and coordinating these assignments. The PE makes decisions independently concerning problems and opportunities and maintains contacts with key personnel of client organization relating to engineering. The PE is involved in the planning and direction of various complex engineering assignments on the GBSD project. The PE key roles may include but are not limited to: Development of Mechanical, Electrical, Piping (MEP) and Structural design, coordinating design reviews with customers, interdisciplinary coordination, system boundary definition, bounding designs against unknown conditions, and interfacing engineering with construction and procurement functions. Development and execution of site-specific engineering activities to align site design documents to site specific characterizations, enabling advancement and coordination of construction and procurement activities at each site. Coordinate remote execution teams, corporate resources, procedure and instruction development, and staffing activities. Oversees consistent use of standard planning tools and processes in the design execution. Coordinate resolution of comments, conditions adverse to quality, and leads a multi-discipline team in performance of support tasks to ensure the final product is coordinated within engineering and with interfacing organizations. Develops management deliverables and business processes to support design and construction execution strategy, in coordination with Document Control and Quality functions. Plan and develop engineering activities to support planning and scheduling, EVMS tracking, scope of work alignment verification;while ensuring overall coordination.
Directs and coordinates engineering activities for the project or assigned portion including supervision of engineers of all disciplines assigned to the project.
Establishes or assists in establishing the detailed project execution plan and the development of the overall project engineering budget and schedule.
