The Riyadh Metro project is a consortium led by Bechtel which includes Almabani General Contractors, Consolidated Contractors Company and Siemens. |
The consortium will be responsible for the design, construction, train cars, signalling, electrification and integration of Lines 1 and 2 of the new Riyadh Metro system.
Line 1 will stretch from north to south across Riyadh, covering 24 miles (38km). It will include 22 stations and four transfer stations where it will connect with other new metro lines. Much of Line 1 will be underground.
In contrast, Line 2 will be built mostly on a raised strip in the median of the planned freeway. This line will run east to west and will extend more than 15.7 miles (25km) with 13 stations and three transfer stations.
The new lines will feature stations powered by renewable energy and fully automatic trains.
The contract is the largest engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract in Bechtel's history and these lines, along with four others, will form the backbone of Riyadh's new public transportation network.
- Evaluates, selects, and applies standard engineering methods, techniques, procedures and criteria, using independent judgment in making adaptations and modifications.
- Organizes outstanding client comments on Mechanical MEP systems designs, determines the root technical issue to be resolved and the appropriate resolution based on applicable contract and code requirements, leads the resolution discussions with the client, and drives any resulting design revisions to completion.
- Performs assignments, which have clear and specific objectives and require the investigation of a limited number of variables for an engineering discipline within a global business unit.
- Performs overall systems design and engineering tasks, within a discipline, having some degree of complexity.
- Understands roles played by other disciplines on the project.
- Participates in reviewing and checking designs, drawings and data by other engineers or by suppliers.
- Monitors project controls within discipline.
- Assists in the on-the-job training of people assigned.
- Familiar with all Engineering Department Procedures (EDPs) and their application to projects.
- Knowledge of design standards and guides, and Bechtel Standard Application Programs (BSAPs) applicable to the discipline.
A. Supervision Received
- Receives technical and administrative supervision from a Project Engineer.
B. Supervision Exercised
- Provides instructions on specific assignment objectives, complex features and possible solutions.
- Assistance is furnished on unusual problems and work is reviewed for application of acceptable methods and judgment.
- Provides technical direction to drafters, designers, technicians and less experienced engineers as directed.
- Contacts counterpart in other disciplines, supplier/client representatives and project field personnel when directed, to either gather or give information.
ESSENTIAL JOB DUTIES:
- Performs work, generally within one discipline, which involves the preparation, interpretation or review of calculations, specifications, plans, investigations, surveys, structures, systems or equipment with relatively few complex features against industry code and client contract requirements.
- Develops equipment specifications, evaluates technical bids, supports development of equipment purchase orders by others
- Reviews design documents of equipment manufacturers or subcontractors of a moderate degree of complexity, and prepares comments and recommendations.
- Supports development of engineering scope for the installation contractors
- Assists in preparation of forecasts, quantity take-offs and change orders.
- Preparation or review of engineering studies and reports
- Preparation or review of material quantity estimates
- Prepares letters for replies to client and vendor correspondence.
- Monitors project controls within discipline.
- Participates in and fosters a work environment that is based upon openness, trust, communication, teamwork, empowerment, innovation, and satisfaction.
- Technical knowledge of engineering systems, engineering calculations, applications of engineering methods and construction methods and materials, and application of computer aided engineering (CAE)/computer aided design (CAD) tools to engineering problems.
- Extensive knowledge and experience in the planning, design and construction of the following systems:
- HVAC (Space cooling and ventilation) systems;
- Plumbing (Cold & hot water services) systems;
- Drainage (Waste-water, Soil & vent, Storm-Water) systems;
- Fire protection & fighting system;
- And associated BMS & electrical services integration requirements.
- Knowledge of project controls within discipline.
- Good knowledge of major industry or regulatory standards and design criteria pertinent to the particular engineering discipline.
- Basic skill in oral and written communication. The above is normally acquired through:
- A recognized degree in an engineering or a related scientific discipline, from an accredited college or university, OR
- A Professional Engineer license from a recognized licensing board, OR
- A sufficient number of specialized courses in relevant general engineering or appropriate engineering disciplines to meet job requirements, AND
- Developmental experience such as practical work experience in design engineering or other relevant types of engineering such as systems startup, field engineering, or plant operation in large industrial plants, utilities, process plants or other engineering/construction firms.
- For positions primarily of a specialized nature, an equivalent graduate level education may be substituted for experience.
