Seeking energetic Engineering Team Leader to guide the growth of our site civil and environmental engineering practice in the Richmond, VA office. Provides technical and career-growth leadership to our staff of engineers and CAD designers, along with client and project management for a broad range of power, commercial, and municipal customers.
Duties include the execution, management, and oversight of various civil projects related to solid waste, coal combustion residuals (CCR) management facilities, leachate and wastewater management, earthwork design, stormwater design, geotechnical evaluation, subsurface investigation, environmental permitting, and other civil designs associated with industrial projects. Project delivery and management will require deliverables preparation (reports, permit applications, construction drawings), budget and schedule management, billing and project tracking, and interaction with other WSP offices, clients, subcontractors, and regulators. Ensures that responsibilities are delivered and adhered to with a level of quality that meets or exceeds acceptable industry standards for design, safety, and functionality.
- Assume leadership and mentoring role for an established group of engineers and CAD designers, providing career development, technical guidance, and strategic team growth.
- Apply high-level civil and environmental engineering techniques and processes to identify improvements for various site development/redevelopment project phases including concept development, preliminary design, final design, procurement, construction, and operation.
- Lead and perform professional civil and environmental engineering work and conduct complex/ comprehensive investigations and inspections of proposed and existing site conditions, resources, facilities, site grading, stormwater drainage, water supply, pipelines, groundwater and soil pollution sources, buildings, and power plants to determine conformance with applicable rules, standards, and construction or operating permits.
- Develop construction plans, specifications, and cost estimates; prepare construction safety and phasing plans; and update infrastructure layout plans that require coordination with owners, other disciplines, sub-consultants, and clients.
- Provide oversight for collecting, compiling, and analyzing data from the physical work site, surveys, blueprints, GIS data, subsurface utility information, maps, hydrologic analysis, geotechnical data, and other matrices for project development, design, and construction.
- Involved from project inception to completion in the management of design and construction of infrastructure projects, including grading, drainage, solid waste facility design, remediation, rehabilitation and reconstruction, specifications, building materials, phasing, and construction safety plans.
- Develop and incorporate advanced technologies, monitoring devices, building materials, modeling techniques, design requirements, and operating strategies to account for the safety and functionality of end-users, sitewide stormwater flow, remediation, and implementing future-ready solutions with civil engineering design standards.
- Assist with engineering review of permit applications, engineering design plans and specifications, standby plans and engineering contracts, integrated waste management plans, and periodic construction inspections, to ensure that they comply with applicable state and/or federal regulations and sound engineering practice and standards.
- Prepare data and visualizations such as tables, charts, reports, sketches, calculations, cross-sections, and other illustrations for the interpretation or presentation of more complex data, findings, or analyses.
- Prepare comprehensive technical reports and presentations that explain research, concepts, and recommendations to prevent, control, restore, or address engineering, design, and/or construction issues or opportunities.
- Analyze, evaluate, and interpret data obtained during field investigations, offering input with developing action plans for moderate- to high-level risk mitigation activities.
- Prepare and implement site Health and Safety Plans (HASPs).
- Interact with regulatory agencies, subcontractors, and clients in a confident and professional manner.
- Collaborate with professionals, other engineers, planners, and infrastructure authorities on Federal, State, regional, and locally funded improvement and development projects, as well as proposal and business development opportunities.
- Remain current in latest civil and environmental engineering techniques and practices.
- Perform additional responsibilities as required by business needs.
