  • Provide leadership to junior technical staff (drafters, designers/EITs) for successful completion of design and permitting of civil projects.
  • Collaborate with other internal team members (e.g., landscape architects, structural engineers, architects) and external consultants for preparation of permit documents.
  • Develop, implement and manage project work schedules and civil team project budgets.

What you bring:
