Are you tired of working for a company with no hope of getting a "piece of the pie"? Think that your opportunity to be an owner in the firm is limited by the person currently in the corner office? Get your "skin in the game" by bringing your talents, creativity, and outstanding communication skills to a 100% employee-owned company that is repeatedly voted a "Best Place to Work". Burns & McDonnell is looking for the unique Building Energy Modeling engineer that has a desire to apply their conceptual and technical design experience, while actively engaging their entrepreneurial spirit. Whether you enjoy working with clients that are commercial, military, domestic, or international, you will have the opportunity use those leadership and people-skills that sets you apart from your peers. Successful candidate would be experienced with conceptual, detailed and compliance energy modeling, auditing and design of numerous comprehensive commercial, industrial and military projects.Targeted skill sets include:
- Conceptual level analysis of building energy demand, consumption and design alternatives working in interdisciplinary collaboration to study impacts of building orientation, thermal massing, and use of shading overhangs and low-E glazing systems - and improved efficiencies of lighting, service hot water and HVAC.
- Detailed Analysis of energy consumption utilizing whole-building energy modeling tools, such as EnergyPlus, eQuest and Trane Trace to evaluate impacts on overall energy efficiency from building envelopes - such as building orientation, thermal massing, and use of shading overhangs and low-E glazing systems - and improved efficiencies of lighting, service hot water and HVAC
- Proposing energy conservation measures for life cycle and economic analysis of facilities to meet energy budget targets and optimize building envelope and systems design.
- Developing detailed models in compliance with the ASHRAE 90.1 performance rating method for use in achieving LEED rating points.
- Experience with conservation measures and control systems such as variable frequency drives, motion sensing occupancy sensors, time clocks, daylight sensing lighting controls, direct digital control, and thermal storage systems.
- Control strategies using integrated energy management and control systems with occupied/unoccupied mode, time-of-day scheduling, optimum-start, demand load-shedding duty cycle demand limiting, economizer cycles, night setback and daylighting studies
- Evaluating impacts on overall energy efficiency from building envelopes - such as building orientation, thermal massing, and use of shading overhangs and low-E glazing systems - and improved efficiencies of lighting, service hot water and HVAC equipment.
Candidate should be capable of executing complex assignments requiring the use of conceptual and/or advanced techniques, resulting in the development of new or improved processes, equipment and/or technological methods. Will develop and evaluate plans for major projects. Candidate will be expected to standardize department energy modeling efforts. This would include providing leadership, guidance, and instruction to less experienced staff members. Candidate shall also develop department standards for reporting energy modeling results to clients. Regularly meet and correspond with clients or outside personnel. Proactive, self performer desired who is capable of applying intensive and diversified knowledge of principles and practices to broad areas of assignments. Must be capable of devising new approaches to problems encountered. Some marketing responsibilities. You will be involved in a variety of unique design projects, from airport terminals andaircraft manufacturing plants with robotic paint facilities to university central utility plants, international training facilities, media centers and multiple military related programs. Be a part of an energy-filled work place that pays for performance, where you can invest in a career that you can grow into state of the art technical expertise.
