An exciting opportunity awaits!
We have an exciting opportunity for multiple, full-time Project Technologists to play a pivotal role in the renovation and renewal of social housing buildings across the Province. Based at our conveniently located Burnaby office and travelling to sites when required, you'll experience a sense of accomplishment as you work on a range of housing properties, overseeing design and construction and ensuring compliance with municipal standards.
As a Project Technologist, you'll use your critical thinking skills and knowledge of BC Building Code/municipal approval process to review specifications, perform site inspections, manage the work of consultants and contractors, complete contract administration, and provide technical services support, as required.
Of course, no two days are likely to be the same in this role. If you're seeking a rewarding opportunity that offers lots of challenge, collaboration and a healthy work/life balance, this could be the role for you!
You'll be a great fit for this role if you have great communication skills, a positive attitude and a diploma from a building, engineering or architectural technology program. Eligibility for designation as an AScT (Applied Science Technologist) or CET (Certified Engineering Technologist) with ASTTBC (Applied Science Technologists & Technicians of BC) is a definite advantage, but not essential. Ideally, you'll also have:
Specific training in building envelope principles, industry standards, regulatory requirements, construction contract administration and sound construction practices
At least two years' broad-based technologist experience
Previous contraction administration experience (including CCDC contracts)
Exposure to the design or construction of multi-unit residential projects
Proficiency in Microsoft Office applications and construction software
Most importantly, we're seeking candidates who share the values of our organization and who are committed to helping those in need. You'll also be able to read and critique construction drawings and have experience inspecting new and existing buildings and estimating construction costs. Some exposure to building envelope assessment reports is considered an asset.
Due to the nature of this role, a valid BC driver's license, access to a reliable vehicle and the ability to travel is also required. Successful candidates are subject to a satisfactory criminal record search and are required to maintain Security Clearance throughout their employment.
Please Note: *An eligibility list may be established*
