DESIGN COORDINATOR – STRUCTURAL-REINFORCING ENGINEER
Type of position: Current Opportunity
The Keeyask Generating Station is a hydroelectric project for the lower Nelson River in northern Manitoba. BBE Hydro Constructors LP is the General Civil Works Contractor, responsible for elements of the generating station including a seven-unit powerhouse complex, concrete spillway, approximately 2.2-kilometres of earth dam structures and 23.0-kilometres of earth dyke structures. Construction began in summer of 2014, and the project completion by early 2020.
BBE Hydro Constructors LP is currently looking for an Earthworks Field Engineer. This position will be located near Gillam, Manitoba and living on the associated construction camp
Responsible for assigned discipline activities for the coordination of the design that is being developed by the customer’s designer of record. Work includes design coordination for the structural and reinforcing steel design engineering activities as required for the Civil works of the Keeyask Generating Station project. The Keeyask Generating Station is a large scale hydro project located near Gillam in Northern Manitoba, and the design coordination work carried out under this position is for relevant structural/reinforcing work for the Civil Work Contract that include the Powerhouse and Spillway heavy concrete structures, dams, dykes and related works. This position will be based at the customer designer’s office in Winnipeg MB. Work may require field visits to the project site near Gillam, MB.
