You will perform “Hands On” site assessments of the physical property including roofs and evaluations which include, but are not limited to, site water supplies, dust hazards, chemical storage, and rack storage arrangements of client products.

 

Consultant Engineers are charged with ensuring that FM Global Engineering Standards are followed and as necessary must communicate the appropriate recommendations and/or engineering solutions to ensure client understanding and agreement for risk improvement so strong communication, listening and interpersonal skills are a must.

 

You must be willing to operate from a home office and will be expected to travel to clients' facilities daily. Overnight travel is expected approximately 30% of the time. You must also be willing to travel to Natural Catastrophe sites as needed.
