Project deliverables may require field technical support with investigations and site visit observations during project construction.[O1]    


Concrete Engineering is considered a “specialty” engineering service and as such has high visibility with Project upper management where high professionalism is always expected.  Project related travel varies but it is projected to be approximately 25% and it can be anywhere in North America. Continued job related learning (Kiewit University, Professional Engineer Continued Education, personal professional development) is encouraged and expected.
