CONSTRUCTION PRACTICE

Michael Baker International's Construction Services staff supports clients by acting as their trusted on-site agent through all phases of construction, from pre-design to close-out, by providing qualified construction managers, inspectors, constructability reviewers, schedulers, estimators and safety experts. As new technologies evolve throughout the construction industry, innovative ideas are required to maintain and deliver successful construction projects.

DESCRIPTION

Michael Baker is seeking a Civil Construction Associate I for our Baltimore, (Linthicum) Maryland office. Specific duties may depend on job assignments but will include serving as project support for construction projects, coordinating construction inspection activities, working with office staff and field crews engaged in basic technical engineering activities, evaluating contract specifications and plans, executing project paperwork / required documentation, and working with data systems in support of the client(s). Employees in some positions in this classification do not supervise but may serve in a lead role.

Work is performed under the general supervision of a Resident Engineer or Construction Manager with the Construction Services Department. Work conditions vary depending on assignments and are performed in the office and/or in the field (Office to Field - 80:20) with exposure to varying weather conditions, challenging terrain, and requirements for walking, standing, bending, and lifting loads. The position requires hand/eye coordination in the efficient operation of computers and field equipment (survey, testing equipment, etc.). Employees will be based in the Baltimore office but may be asked to travel and be available for work throughout Maryland on a sporadic and temporary basis.

Employees in this classification will be assigned duties which require the operation of a motor vehicle. Employees assigned to such duties will be required to possess a driver's license valid in the State of Maryland or obtain said license following employment. Applicants may be subject to a background check which may impact employment.

The best part of being a Civil Construction Associate for Michael Baker is that no two days will be the same. You will face different challenges every day, some of which will be extraordinarily complex. You will feel a sense of pride in knowing that you are helping Michael Baker provide innovative construction solutions to transportation/airport challenges, big and small, and making a difference for our clients and the communities we serve.
