Technical, managerial and site management ensures successful project delivery

Project Engineers are responsible for managing all the technical details of a project. They work on projects that involve multiple engineering disciplines and act as a technical conduit between them all.

Project Engineers allow Project Managers to remain at a higher level, acting as their eyes and ears for all site work, design, and commissioning. Project Engineers are involved with the “nuts and bolts” of a project; they apply a macro lens to the project and work with stakeholders across your project to ensure it’s finished in full, on time, and in spec.
