Projects vary in scale from small single discipline projects to very large, billion dollar, multidiscipline projects. Ongoing and upcoming projects that our team is involved with include Mica Units 5 & 6 Replacement, Ruskin Dam and Powerhouse Upgrades, John Hart Generating Station Replacement, Bennett Spillway Upgrade, Peace Canyon Performance Investigation, Bridge River Transformer and Circuit Breaker Replacement, Mica Dam Performance Investigation, and others.

 

TRANSMISSION ENGINEERING:

The Graduate Technologist in Training will be trained in the civil and structural engineering discipline with some geotechnical courses and will be expected to perform a variety of complex technical, financial and support functions relating to the administration, planning, project management, design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance of civil and structural projects within the generation, transmission and station plant. Will be required to work for periods in relatively remote work sites and in all weather conditions. May be expected to perform a variety of related administrative duties. May perform drafting duties.

As a Graduate Technologist in Training, it is expected the successful candidate would take on an active role in the activities listed below and be willing to be mentored and directed by more experienced engineers and technologists when necessary.

  •  Perform work primarily in the civil/structural discipline, however also provide support/assistance to other disciplines, including geotechnical, hydrotechnical, estimating, construction   management, and project management.
  •  Work with project teams including engineers, dam safety personnel, operations personnel, project managers, environmental professionals, and other stakeholders, to help develop the scope, objectives and user requirements of individual projects.
  • Carry out detailed searches of background information, including As-Built drawings previous reports, construction information, previous project information. Prepare detailed summaries of background information.
  • Plan and implement field investigations / site visits as required for obtaining information on site conditions. On small projects this could consist of a 1 day site visit, while on major project this could consist of multi-year, multi-discipline investigations with extensive field work.
  • Prepare working design bases for design tasks to document the design objectives, design criteria, technical references used, load cases and combinations, analysis methodology, design assumptions, and any other relevant design information.
  • Interact with other disciplines as necessary to obtain any information that is required as input to the civil/structural work. 
  • Carry out analysis and design of structural components.
