Job Description

Open Date: 11/7/18

Close Date: 12/10/18

Fermilab is America's premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. We support discovery science experiments in Illinois and South Dakota, and around the world, including Canada, Chile and the South Pole.

We are strategic risk takers, innovators, and collaborators. We are engineers, scientists, technicians, administrative professionals. We are 1,800 employees advancing knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. We build world-leading accelerators and detectors to conduct some of the most advanced particle physics experiments possible. We collect and analyze the data from those experiments with some of the most powerful computers in the world.

The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) / Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) Project is seeking a Construction Specialist to join the Fermilab team at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in Lead, South Dakota. The LBNF/DUNE Project will design and construct the world's largest proposed neutrino experiment to answer the most compelling questions about the makeup of our universe. In support of DUNE, LBNF will construct the world's most powerful neutrino beamline at Fermilab and surface and underground conventional facilities (CF) to host DUNE's large liquid argon neutrino detectors nearly a mile underground at the Sanford Lab.

Under minimal supervision, the selected candidate will independently coordinate, inspect, and oversee all aspects of complex construction projects including the installed systems, safety management systems, quality assurance and controls systems, project schedules and costs. They will inspect construction work in progress to ensure that materials and work standards conform to specifications, quality requirements of the contract and applicable construction codes. They will oversee construction contractors' activities to ensure compliance of their Environmental, Safety, & Health (ES&H) plans, applicable Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Standards, equipment manufacturers' specifications, and applicable hazard analysis.

You Will
  • Inspect construction work in progress to ensure that materials and work standards conform to specifications and quality requirements of the contract and applicable construction codes.
  • Oversee construction contractors' daily shift activities to ensure compliance of their ES&H plans, applicable OSHA Standards, equipment manufacturers' specifications, and applicable hazard analyses.
  • Arrange work permits and prepare associated Hazard Analyses (HA's) (coring, confined spaces, excavation permits, domestic water, waste water, electrical permits, etc.)
  • Coordinate construction contractor's activities with lab operations and other laboratory construction projects.
  • Issue reports to project management on construction concerns and work progress, and ensure that proper documentation is maintained.
  • Prepare cost estimates to compare with construction contractor change requests.
  • Verify construction contractor charges for work segments completed.
  • Verify progress payment invoices, and perform final acceptance inspections.
  • Review and recommend approval of construction contractor's payment applications.
  • Document changes in field conditions and changes in scope.
  • Prepare and process field-directed changes.
  • Communicate with subcontractors on daily/weekly work shifts.
  • Be available to rotate through daily shifts on a 24 hour/day basis

We Are Looking For
  • Associate Degree in Construction Management, Engineering, Engineering Technology or related field and 10+ years of heavy industrial/commercial experience OR a minimum of 20 years of progressive management and/or inspection experience in heavy industrial/commercial construction
  • Experience in overseeing and managing heavy industrial/commercial construction
  • Knowledge of all construction disciplines. including: excavations, concrete, structural steel, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and building automation is desired
  • Strong written and verbal communications skills to enable effective interaction with project, Fermilab, and stakeholder personnel
  • Demonstrated ability to build effective teams and partnerships across a wide range of stakeholders to deliver complex projects
  • Assure personal training certifications are attained and maintained to cover the work conditions presented
  • Ability to use MS Office and document management systems
  • Ability to work independently
  • Experience in working on $25M+ projects with multiple stakeholders and significant contractor involvement preferred
