Civil Design Advantage, Grimes is in the market for a summer employee in our construction observation department.  The job includes observing infrastructure improvements (grading, utility improvements, street paving, etc.) and determining if the contractor is installing the improvements per plans and specifications.  We anticipate approximately 40+ hours per week on average during the 2014 construction season.  We anticipate the position for the summertime construction season (May-August) timeframe.
Initial responsibilities will include construction observation.  Responsibilities may grow or be updated based on abilities.  Normal business hours are based on the contractor’s schedule.  We would envision candidates being available  to observe construction based on the contractor’s presence on the site.  Additional hours (including potential weekend time) may be required to meet the project schedule.  We would also ask potential candidates to be able to drive their personal vehicles from construction site to construction site.  CDA would pay mileage based on the current IRS rate once the employee arrived at the first construction site for the day.
I would appreciate limiting any responses to candidates with previous construction observation or materials testing experience.  Potential candidates can forward me a resume if interested.
