Job Information Description
We are in an energy transition – sustainability and renewable attributes of our power generation sources are becoming increasingly important to society. Hydroelectric power plants play a crucial role in the mix because water is an inherently renewable “fuel”, and because water power serves to enable other renewable, but non-dispatchable, generation forms. Our work includes engineering for new greenfield water power facilities but more likely the redevelopment, refurbishment and renovation of existing, historic plants.
Our goal is to increase the role Stantec plays in this important sector through strengthening our capabilities, improving our effectiveness, growing business volume, and elevating the Stantec brand recognition.
Join a team that will support you in doing meaningful work according to your unique way of arriving at our goal.
Our hydro team is seeking a colleague who enjoys human interaction, can understand client needs and matches them with... appropriate solutions.
Whom we seek, has experience in performing structural design including calculations and preparation of drawings, specifications and reports for hydraulic structures, hydroelectric facilities, marine structures, and other infrastructure associated with renewable energy projects. The right candidate will support the team in proposal development and client presentation. If you feel a passion for water power, please apply and convince us that you are the right person for our team.

Key Responsibilities
Observe and personify safety and quality culture.
With some guidance from our experienced hydro engineers but responsible for approach and execution, develop solutions to a variety of diverse engineering problems involving hydropower stations, spillway and dams.
Perform field support during installation and construction through monitoring for quality control and consistency with the design specifications.
As a strong team player, motivate team to work together efficiently and mitigate team conflict.
Apply standard techniques, procedures and criteria to carry out engineering tasks.
Ensure design compliance with relevant engineering standards and codes (i.e. CSA A23.1 to 23.4, S6, S16, National Building Code of Canada, Dam safety Guidelines by Canadian Dam Association etc.), as well as internal QA/QC procedures.
Prepare preliminary and detailed designs and specifications for hydroelectric generating stations, spillways and concrete dams.
Prepare calculations or designs using software packages.
Oversee and guide the preparation of civil/structural drawings for construction.
Prepare technical reports, memoranda and meeting minutes.
Perform individually or as a team member within civil/structural discipline and on interdisciplinary projects.
Perform interdisciplinary coordination with other engineering disciplines per project requirements.
Support field team in construction services including site inspection and contract administration.

Contribute to coaching and peer review of the team’s less experienced professionals.
Assist in the preparation of proposals.
Other duties as assigned.
Works collaboratively with Project Engineers and Project Managers to assist in planning, design, CAD drafting and preparation of drawings, bid documents, technical specifications, and capital cost estimates in connection with a variety of engineering projects.
Communicates with other team members and become familiar with Stantec standards.
Meet HSSE goals and targets and personal utilization requirements.
Communicate at ease and habitually across the corporate hierarchy.
Know and relate with relevant industry associations, academic institutions, and training programs.
Write, coordinate or present publications and conference presentations on innovative or interesting aspects of their work.
Know Stantec’s technology differentiators and be able to explain client benefits.
Your Capabilities and Credentials
Field experience in site monitoring or contract admin for construction of hydropower and dam structures considered an asset.
