Take conceptual plant layouts and sketches and develop them into a set of working drawings that can be utilized to construct a facility. Design and prepare complete and accurate construction and fabrication drawings for industrial processing facilities and bulk/packaged material handling layout and design projects. Integrating skilled architectural/engineering drafting methods and procedures with the operation and application of computer-aided design equipment and software.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Coordinate with Project Managers, Engineers, Designers and Detailers to produce the following types of drawings for use by field and fabrication personnel:
Site Development drawings
Process Flow Diagrams
Equipment Layout drawings
Concrete construction drawings
Steel construction and fabrication drawings
Sheet metal fabrication drawings
Industrial ventilation drawings (dust control systems)
Able to work independently and possibly lead a small team of designers.
Participate in design review meetings and report weekly progress for weekly project meetings.
Provide input to estimating as to number of hours required to complete drawings for a project based on a given scope of work.
Travel to project site to gather pertinent dimensional information.
Produce preliminary steel layout and minor platform design.
Perform minor calculations for system design (surge bin sizing, spouting size selection, dust collection CFM requirements, and minor conveyor sizing).
Maintain a working knowledge of construction and fabrication means and methods.
Maintain a working knowledge of construction and fabrication nomenclature (i.e. weld symbols, rebar callout abbreviations, steel drawing abbreviations, etc.).
Modify drawings as directed by engineer or architect at the conclusion of a project to match what was actually built in the field - “As-Builts”.
Minor coordination with vendors gathering equipment dimensions & specifications. Check equipment approval drawings for fit within a system.
Maintain project drawing files according to Bratney Companies standards and procedures.
