Dynamic and energetic project leader with proven ability and skills to tackle the most complex projects and issues. Consistently involved in all facets of the building process, equipped with a broad understanding in: planning, design and construction. Flexible team player who works with other departments to address all project needs and requirements. Great communicator who builds lasting relationships by understanding client needs, solving problems and negotiating prices without sacrificing margin.
As construction engineer I am responsible for all aspects of field engineering assignments including the complete planning, scheduling, and subcontractor review of performance to assure contract compliance, the application of accepted construction technology and the acceptable standardization of materials and supplies.
Further, I assist in completing all technical documentation to ensure quality and compliance to the contract and applicable codes.
All completed work must meet industry standards and be in accordance with the customers' specifications.
This should all be done at or below budget, on time and within company safety objectives.
As a turnover coordinator my role is to be the focal point of the project in all matters related to the testing of all pipe.
As piping packages come to construction completion they are reviewed by the turnover coordinator for final release to pipe testing subcontractor.
It is the responsibility of the turnover coordinator to see that all essential parts of the package are in place and that the most efficient process will be taken when testing all lines included in the packages. All engineering aspects, constructibility, compliance with contract and specifications and safety precautions are taken into account when reviewing these packages.
During my time at Steel Truss and Frame Fabricators I had the opportunity to put into play all my areas of expertise. I was able to use my architecture knowledge to design new buildings and produce construction documents for permitting and construction. My structural engineering knowledge was the most suitable while with the company, as most of my time was spent designing light gauge metal frames and trusses. I was also involved with preparing detailed estimates, proposal and contract writing and the construction management of multiple projects.
Craig Olden Inc. is a design-build earth retention specialist which has established itself as one of the leading contractors of its kind in the state of Texas. When joining the company my main responsibility was as an estimator. As I became more familiar with the line of work I was able to expand into design and managed the construction of multiple projects.
As an estimator, I was responsible for scouting out prospective projects; once these projects were identified the following had to take place for success in the bidding process: site visits, coordination with clients, geotechnical research, land surveys, evaluation of surrounding environment, special needs, suppliers and collaboration with engineering and senior staff.
As I ventured out into project management I was able to understand the construction process of the company's systems more in depth. This position required a high level of coordination ability as involvement with procurement, field superintended, general contractor, other subcontractors and engineering was done on a daily basis.
As a designer of these systems it was necessary to understand their engineering characteristic and theory of how they functioned. Understanding the types of soils and their characteristics was also necessary in order to apply the proper systems.
