- Establish an electrical/instrumentation design/field engineering working relationship and lines of communication with the Project Engineer, including agreement on electrical/instrumentation engineering deliverables and overall construction application configuration management.
- Responsible for quantity take-off, control, tracking, reporting and forecasting for electrical/instrumentation discipline.
- Specify the electrical/instrumentation criteria for construction of temporary construction facilities as required.
- Direct the preparation of requisitions for field procured materials, material substitution, services and equipment including panels, motors, switchgear, and instruments.
- Approve field requisitions as delegated by the Project Field Engineer.
- Review material receiving reports and warehousing to assure delivery of correct electrical/instrumentation materials.
- Coordinate and monitor the interfaces for electrical/instrumentation data exchange to support the construction automation plan and the project controls program requirements at the jobsite.
- Develop and manage the electrical/instrumentation construction quality program.
- Direct preparation of cost estimates for electrical/instrumentation construction activities and coordinate the preparation of cost reports, forecast and progress reports.
- Coordinate with Field supervision and Subcontractors to plan/support construction schedules.
- Plan and recommend electrical/instrumentation procedures to be implemented by Field Supervision to ensure construction operations are within requirements of engineering design and specifications.
- Work with customer’s resident engineering and operating personnel to coordinate electrical/instrumentation construction activities.
- Coordinate subcontract activities to ensure electrical/instrumentation materials, equipment and quality comply with design plans and specifications. Implement controls over variables affecting electrical/instrumentation installation job progress such as cable routing, terminations, instrument installation, and loop testing. Also ensure engineering and procurement provide timely delivery of drawings, materials and equipment and that other corporate programs are fully utilized.
- Administer major subcontract changes regarding the electrical/instrumentation discipline and represent the company in major contractual discussions and negotiations.
- Perform other duties as required by Bechtel management.
- Validate and submit (discipline) construction quantities for Quantity Unit Rate Report (QURR) tracking.
- Interface with Project Controls for submittal of quantities to ePCWorks.
