Civil Engineering Technician


Civil Engineering Technician

My job is to support the Civil Engineers in building our renewable energy sites. I conduct tests of construction materials, prepare sketches and tabulations, and assist in estimating costs. I love getting stuck into a complex calculation of the volume of concrete required for an odd shaped structural foundation, I'm just like that I guess.
