At WSP, we're continuing to grow and develop our expertise in Geotechnical Engineering, specifically our Foundations practice, operating as a trusted advisor and technical expert on engineering design challenges for our clients across multiple industries including transportation, infrastructure, and buildings. Our team is growing, and as a result we're hoping to add an intermediate Foundations Engineer to our group.
As an intermediate Foundations Engineer, a day in the life involves time spent in the field, as well as working in the Etobicoke office on projects and assignments related to geotechnical foundations engineering. You'll work closely with a small team, be mentored by industry experts, and work on major projects. We have a clear mission, true values, and a future-focused mindset. Come explore what we can offer you.
- You'll perform all aspects of geotechnical investigations for buildings, highways, bridges, retaining walls, slope stability, and municipal infrastructure;
- You'll review construction materials testing and field monitoring of geotechnical aspects of projects;
- You'll prepare proposals, cost estimates, and project timelines, as well as lead the planning, field support and completion of geotechnical site investigations;
- You'll review and interpret the monitoring information from geotechnical instrumentation and testing programs and provide geotechnical design recommendations and parameters for analyses and design of structure foundations through report review and writing;
- You'll provide technical assistance in troubleshooting construction-related problems and assist project managers with quality control or quality assurance testing issues, and attend site visits, meetings, etc. as required as well as other tasks that might arise from time to time.
- A degree in Engineering Geology or Civil Engineering with Geotechnical emphasis as well as experience with conducting field reviews of earthworks;
- Several years experience working within the province and familiarity with Ontario engineering regulations;
- Experience in Foundations projects for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO);
