As an Engineer in Design and Construction – Major Infrastructure Section, you’ll either individually lead a project or work in a team with a Senior Engineer to deliver multidisciplinary project(s) at wastewater treatment plants, wastewater/wet weather pumping stations, water treatment plants, pumping stations, reservoirs, major tunneling, solid waste transfer stations, organics processing facility, and closed landfills. You will provide project management and engineering expertise for studies and during preliminary design, detailed design, construction and post construction phases of projects.

An integral part of your job as a City Engineer will be to work independently or in a team with a Senior Engineer and engage engineering consultants by preparing Requests for Proposals (RFPs), evaluating proposals for compliance with the City's purchasing processes and managing, overseeing and reviewing the work of engineering consultants. Working in collaboration with the client divisions and engineering consultants, you’ll also be called upon to provide engineering advice, Requests for Quotations (RFQs) and Construction Tender packages and you will oversee construction.

Project management accountabilities
Following best project management practices, and Division guidelines and manuals, you’ll work on mainly facility and tunneling infrastructure projects – from initiation, scoping and gathering of background information, to assisting the client and manager in preparing the capital budget and execute project up to warranty completion. For projects you manage or support, it will be your responsibility to ensure that all required permits and approvals are secured, stakeholders are identified and consulted, projects are on schedule and expenditures are within budget and yearly cash flow estimates, finalizing contract payments and implementing quality control/quality assurance for construction.

Technical expertise and innovation
Valued for your professional expertise, you’ll review technical memorandums, alternate/options assessments, engineering reports, multidisciplinary engineering design drawings and contract specifications to ensure design complies with applicable guidelines, standards, specifications and other requirements. You will prepare engineering analysis, justifications and evaluations to recommend change orders for senior management approval or to advise on a major issue. You’ll conduct research and development for the effective resolution of engineering issues, as well as initiate and lead technical studies and projects.
You will also participate on various committees that impact or contribute to service delivery improvements and employee engagement.

Communication and stakeholder management
Adept at communicating with a broad range of audiences, a key strength within our multi-stakeholder environment, you’ll represent the City on committees, attend meetings and provide input, manage public complaints during construction, prepare presentations for Councillors, prepare construction notices and complete public consultation in line with project needs. This skill will also prove vital as you negotiate claims with contractors and consultants, and coordinate continuously with identified stakeholders throughout the execution of the project.
Among the other strengths you bring to the role of Engineer will be the following key qualifications:
  • A professional Engineering Licence and membership in good standing with Professional Engineers Ontario.
  • Project management experience in managing consulting and construction assignments in any of the following areas: water treatment, wastewater treatment, water pumping station & reservoir, wastewater pumping station, solid waste management facility, landfills, energy from waste, power plants, tunneling, complex chemical/process or other industrial plants and other relevant infrastructure or industrial projects.

  • Knowledge of legislation related to the Construction Act, Ontario Water Resources Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, Occupational Health & Safety Act, Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, Environmental Assessment Act, Environmental Protection Act, Federal Fisheries Act, Excess Soil Regulation and Conservation Act.

Given the nature of this interactive role, you’ll have many opportunities to demonstrate your excellent interpersonal skills and ability to communicate effectively to various audiences, both verbally and in writing, and to establish effective working relationships with a variety of stakeholders, while ensuring the delivery of high-quality customer service. Proficiency using general computer software (e.g. Microsoft Office).
Equally important, you have what it takes to support the Toronto Public Service values to ensure a culture that champions equity, diversity and respectful workplaces.
