Varied assignments, good benefits, lots of road warrior work
Mechanical engineer (Former Employee) – US sites, international – March 17, 2016
On contract transition team for remote site management, did asset assessment and inventory, engineering position descriptions, job interviews. Title II QA/QC inspection: offices, data center, underground 4 pipe (HW, CW), also new Army barracks. Review of vendors shop drawings and submittals, log technical documentation and project RFIs. Answer vendor RFIs, prepare and solicit RFP for projects, prepare requested Statements of Work. Facility plan review of mechanical equipment, building core & shell to LEED design standards. Site assessments and estimates for facility repair, replacement on FEMA disaster recovery projects.
Lots of time away from home and overtime, trying at times living in hotels out of suitcase. Learned Excel, Costworks estimating, site assessment protocol. Often worked with multiple contractors, AECOM employees supportive, others not so much at times. Most enjoyable part of job: seeing USA and world, providing engineering services, judgement, experience to assist client. Matching 401K, good medical and matching stock purchase icing on cake.
