OVERVIEW

CHA Consulting, Inc. is currently seeking a Bridge Engineer to join our Infrastructure – Bridge group in Indianapolis, IN.  

 

Nearly one out of every ten bridges is structurally deficient. As the average age of our nation’s bridges nears 50 years, successful bridge projects must balance complex analytics, engineering innovation and context sensitivity with economic prudency and long-term feasibility. CHA’s bridge professionals incorporate collaborative and diverse thinking with practical and cost-effective designs that responsibly improve mobility and safety. We have inspected, designed, managed and overseen the construction of a wide array of grade separated crossings, retaining systems, and conveyance structures throughout the United States.

At CHA, our Bridge Engineer provides advanced judgment and analysis techniques for the design development, implementation, and technical analysis of various systems to implement new products, or changes to an existing scheme, to suit individual client needs. This key role is responsible for planning, scheduling, conducting, and coordinating detailed phases of a project independently with other engineering disciplines and project management staff. The Bridge Engineer mentors junior staff members and provides technical review of their work as needed.

The Bridge Engineer recommends alterations to development and design to improve quality of products and/or procedures as well as selects proper procedures to self-check his/her own work for completeness and accuracy in technical reports and calculations. The Bridge Engineer identifies, develops, and gathers technical resources necessary to complete assignments. The Bridge Engineer continuously monitors the progress and performance of the engineering design development against the project work plan.
