SPEC Services, Inc. has opportunities for civil engineers and designers to support pipeline and utility design, mapping, and database development using AutoCAD. The work process typically involves investigating and documenting existing features, utilities, and other subsurface structures in southern California, incorporating survey and property/right-of-way information, developing exhibits for communication and permitting, and preparing construction drawings. The work is primarily in the office, but there is often opportunity to do field investigation and validation for the pipeline and utility designs. The primary tool used in this work is AutoCAD Civil3D. Some designers also use GIS as part of the work flow process and development of deliverables, depending on project requirements and the initiative of individuals to learn and apply ESRI and other GIS systems to the completion of the work.
SPEC Services has an excellent reputation for pipeline and utility engineering and design, and is experiencing increasing demand for this type of work. We are seeking to add several pipeline designers to supplement and support our design teams with projects in southern California.
Candidates must be able to use AutoCAD and have an understanding of the use of external references, photo manipulation, and AEC objects. Proficiency in AutoCAD Civil3D is a plus. Position also requires the demonstrated ability to learn new software, standards, and work processes quickly. Successful people will learn the design aspects of these facilities while enhancing their AutoCAD capabilities, with potential to develop to designer and design lead positions. Position also requires the demonstrated ability to learn new software, standards and work processes quickly.
Prior AutoCAD and GIS experience or relevant training is required.
Bachelor Degree in engineering is desirable but not required, and successful performance and years of engineering study will apply to experience requirements. Some experience with construction is a plus, but not required. Specific related pipeline or utility-related design experience, either with an engineering firm or utility operator, and command of AutoCAD Civil3D and ArcGIS is preferred.
