GEOHAZARDS, INC.

Forensic & Structural Engineer

Job Description:

Geohazards Inc. is a small but expanding, privately-owned company based in Gainesville, Florida. Our firm was founded in 1985 as a geological services company, but in the last several years we have expanded our services to include structural and forensic engineering services, mostly conducting investigations of existing buildings and structures. We have had success providing structural and forensic engineering services to our clients, and we are now in a position to add to our current staff of Professional Engineers.

This is a full-time, salaried position, focusing on projects throughout the state of Florida. Thus, the person would be expected to work out of their home/office, conducting forensic and structural engineering investigations of buildings and other structures for a wide variety of problems.

The primary focus of the job involves determining the cause, origin, and duration of reported damages. This involves daily trips to job sites throughout the state (typically, single-family residences). Some overnight trips may be required. Once the site investigation is completed, a draft report (using our templates) is then written from your remote location and sent to our headquarters for a thorough peer review.

You must be highly independent, self-motivated, and organized, due to the non-traditional aspect of this remote position. The potential candidate must have several years of experience in this field and understand the basic functions of this type of engineering work, as well as be able to work with little to no supervision the majority of the time (however, help is always a phone call or email away).

Types of damage routinely investigated include: structural damage, roof damage, moisture intrusion, interior water damage (plumbing and other causes), settlement and other foundation problems, construction defects, general building material failures, and all types of storm-related damage.

Our primary clients are insurance companies. However, property owners and attorneys also utilize our services.  Prior experience with these types of clients, including litigation and deposition work, is highly desirable.

Job Requirements:

  • ·         Bachelor’s of Science in Civil or Structural Engineering is required.
  • ·         Florida P.E. license preferred, but a highly qualified E.I. who has experience and will take the exam soon may be considered.
  • ·         Five or more years of combined structural and forensic engineering experience. We prefer a candidate with traditional structural engineering design experience who is at ease reading a set of plans, understands how buildings are constructed, and is very familiar with architectural components of a building, not just the structure (e.g., roof coverings, wall cladding, flooring, flashing and waterproofing, windows and doors, etc.). 
  • ·         Must have roof inspection experience on all types of roof systems, especially single-family homes (shingles, tile). Also must have attic investigation experience. Must be willing and comfortable performing these types of investigations on two-story structures using a ladder, often under inhospitable conditions (i.e. Florida summers)
  • ·         Generally, you should have experience in all common types of forensic engineering investigations, especially water damage.  Being able to pinpoint the cause and origin of water damage and establish duration is extremely important to our clients.
  • ·         Ability to communicate with our clients in a technical and professional manner by telephone, email, and in person, and summarize your findings in your reports.
  • ·         High skill level in technical writing, and the ability to put together a complete report with photographic references in a timely manner.
  • ·         Manage multiple investigations and reports simultaneously and complete the assignments within the provided timelines.
  • ·         You must have a computer (either laptop or desktop), a high speed internet connection, printer, etc. to remotely access our server and exchange documents smoothly.  Basic forensic engineering tools such as a digital camera, foldable ladder, moisture meter, flashlight, tape measure, etc. will be provided.

Benefits:

  • Work remotely from your home office, where you can set your own office hours.
  • Balance of field and office work.
  • Independent work environment, but with the office management and engineering technical support of an established and experienced company.
  • We try to limit as much administrative and other hassles from our engineer’s duties as possible so that you can concentrate on what you excel at - forensic and structural engineering investigations and completing reports.
  • Full range of benefits, including: Paid time off, health insurance, long-term disability insurance, and a credit card for expenses will be provided.
 anyone that is interested can forward their resume to engineering@geohazardsinc.com
