Design Engineering is seeking a dedicated candidate to join our On-Site Engineering team located in Mercury, NV. This team is responsible for supporting low to medium rigor projects, emerging project issues, and support to facilities engineering, infrastructure facilities management and Construction Department. The selected candidate may also provide support as needed to the Engineering Department. The team may participate on walk-downs, generate sketches, as built drawings help develop conceptual designs, and evaluate existing systems with facility owners. The selected individual should be able to work on multiple projects, maintain a high level of detail, work well with technical personnel adapt to project demands, and be capable of completing work load with little oversight.
Contribute to a dynamic design engineering team, providing across wide range of mechanical engineering support functions on projects for nuclear and non nuclear facility upgrades and modifications including design, analysis, equipment and parts sizing/selection, specifications, drawings/diagrams, oversight, planning and verifying design/documentation comply with applicable requirements, industry codes and standards and DOE requirements.
Experience in developing mechanical design packages to install, replace or upgrade existing systems /equipment that requires preparation and checking of design drawings, specifications and calculations, and system design descriptions for mechanical designs of HVAC, plumbing or utilities, systems infrastructure.
Experience in preparing calculations, applications of engineering methods and application of technology aided engineering tools to facilitiy and analysis-based engineering challenges.
Experience in defining project scope and producing an estimate of engineering efforts, cost and schedule.
Devise solutions to highly complex technical problems of broad scope. Solutions may require resolving conflicting customer expectations and design requirements, utilizing unconventional technology and materials, and cross-disciplinary integration.
Interface and coordinate with other engineering disciplines and customers's facility engineers, crafts during design and construction.
Focus on projects of substantial complexity and broad scope, requiring interdisciplinary coordination.
Interpret and adapt pertinent codes and standards and guidelines for specific cases.
Evaluate processes, procedures, and work instructions to improve performance.
