Structural Designer/Engineer (Toronto)

K. H. Davis Engineering Consultants Ltd is a small firm that designs houses and small buildings, but primarily provides structural engineering design and consulting services, including building code consulting and advocacy for homeowners.

Please read our requirements below carefully before applying for this position. No recruiters or headhunters please.

Most of our work involves structural engineering in wood, using Part 9 of the OBC, but also wood, steel and concrete design to Part 4.

We provide structural engineering design (and some construction services through a sister company) to architects, interior designers, contractors, and private homeowners that need the services of a structural engineer in order to obtain a building permit.

If you like house design and are good at structural design, then this might be interesting to you. But, please don't apply if you are looking for a firm that designs large buildings...that's not us! We are looking for someone who is truly interested in the kind of work that we do.

If you like small projects, are customer service oriented, and are hands-on and creative - problem solver - then this is a position for you.

Job REQUIRES the following:

1. Good understanding of how houses are built in North America (wood frame with siding or brick veneer). Good 3D spatial visualization skills are required.
2. Good knowledge of the 2006 Ontario Building Code, Part 9.
3. Ability to work with small residential contractors.
4. Reasonable AutoCAD skills and meticulous when documenting structural calculations.
5. Must have very good english language skills - report writing in english is a VERY big part of the job. This job would be very difficult for someone not schooled in english as a first language.
5. Candidate must have a college level diploma as a Structural Engineering Technologist or a bachelors degree as a Structural Engineer. Sorry, this is not a position for someone trained in another field.
7. Must be confident and dedicated personality who is willing to assume responsibility.

Please do not telephone, but respond by e-mail.  

Thank you.

Consulting Structural Engineer
