Why join us?

The Process Project Engineer is the first to be consulted for any construction project related to process and bulk gases, UPW, water, wastewater, process mechanical, and bulk chemical systems.

Early in the project, they assess feasibility of new projects. They later develop more detailed scope through field walks and collaboration with facilities operations partners and project engineers from other disciplines. During detailed design and construction, our Project Engineers serve as the Owner's representative to provide technical guidance and issue resolutions. Our Project Engineers are the primary leaders of scope, develop a strong knowledge of internal client master specifications and standards, and use our change process to improve those standards and drive innovative solutions.
