Thriving communities. Healthy cities. A brighter future. What we do is more than building roads and transit facilities, we work every day to make the world better for everyone. If you want to join a company invested in you, your success, and the global community - join us as a Field Engineer/Inspector. 
As a vital member of our People & Places Solutions team in the Americas, you’ll have the chance to work with our client Amtrak and their ADA Stations Program (ADASP) through the US. We’ll depend upon you to preform desktop and field assessments with seasoned construction professionals with an eye toward assessing and identifying potential construction risks associated The goal of these projects is to bring all Amtrak station components into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). You’ll have a chance to work on a wide variety of project types with each station. 


Constructability reviews generally consist of a clipboard inspection where the construction professionals visit the station site to perform a focused site inspection relative to the 60% design without encroaching on the Host Railroad (HRR) ROW. All inspection work will be performed from the platform and adjacent station areas. Site Specific Work Plans (SSWP’s) will be prepared and submitted for review and approval by Amtrak and the HRR. All safety protocols by Amtrak and host railroads will be followed.
Before starting the work at each location, Amtrak and Host Railroad requirements will be reviewed. The work will be closely coordinated with Amtrak and each host railroad to schedule flaggers if required. Necessary training requirements will be fulfilled prior to working at each station.
Each Constructability Review is comprised of five components:
1.    Travel planning and review of 60% design drawings
2.    Travel
3.    Site inspection
4.    Report Production
5.    Participation in APM/DOR meeting (as required)


The data from the field inspections will be analyzed relative to the design documents. Risk
assessments will be made and quantified so Amtrak’s PM can share the findings with its Designer of
Record (DOR) in adequate time for final designs to reflect solutions to concerns identified in the
constructability review. 

At the conclusion of our analysis, a Constructability Report will be
submitted, presenting the field data obtained. The report will focus on identifying potential
construction risks associated with the 60% design documents that might result in change orders that
could result in additional project time and project costs.
