Junior Facility Condition Assessor - ( 2300012M )
Stantec's Calgary office has an opportunity for a Junior Facility Condition Assessor to work within our Facility Assessment team.
Our Facility Assessment team, within the Buildings Engineering Group, specializes in assessing major aspects of buildings, including architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and fire/life safety systems. The assessments provide baseline information relative to the current physical condition of a facility, as well as forecasting of system repairs/replacements and capital investment requirements over a given period. The results may be used to establish a business case for funding to address current and future capital and maintenance expenditures, allow for informed decisions to be made relative to the acquisition, disposition or refinancing of the property as well as for asset management, and to plan and prioritize the distribution of capital funding.
As part of our Facility Assessment team, your time will be dedicated to the assessment of existing buildings, preparing detailed building condition reports, reserve fund studies, capital expenditure forecasts, and maintenance plans.
