Structural Detailer

Job Description Schuchmann Structural Associates, a full service structural engineering firm, is currently searching for a high quality, motivated structural detailer to join our team.  As a structural detailer at the firm, you will work alongside engineers and staff in our office in the development of construction documents for our projects.  Types of projects include public and private schools, large and small retail buildings, low rise multi-story offices buildings, as well as large manufacturing, distribution and industrial facilities. In a collaborative effort, you will work closely with other members of the design and detailing team to prepare high quality structural construction documents. In many cases, these documents will include tilt-up and precast concrete panel layout drawings, rebar placing drawings, and lifting and bracing drawings.

Additional Responsibilities:
  • Work closely with design team to ensure drawings are accurate and completed on time.
  • The ability to read and interpret construction documents prepared by other firms in order to develop field use tilt-up panel layout, rebar, and lifting/bracing drawings.
  • Coordinate structural project work with geotechnical, architectural, process, mechanical and other engineering consultants.
  • As our office transitions to Revit, the structural detailer will be a key resource in providing guidance on best implementation practices.
Desired Skills & Experience Successful candidate may be required to be involved with several projects at one time, paying particular attention to time management, budget and project scheduling requirements.  The ideal candidate will have 5 to 10 years of structural detailing experience in a design/consulting or fabrication office and will possess the following skills and qualifications:
  • AA/AS degree and/or technical certifications in structural detailing.
  • Proficient in the use of AutoCAD 2017.  Experience with Revit is a plus.
  • Excellent leadership skills, computer skills, and written and verbal communication skills. Must be willing to keep an open dialogue with the design team to properly develop and coordinate the construction documents.
  • Applicants must be legally eligible to work in the United States without sponsorship.
