Location

Houston, Texas

Experience

* As the lead Structural Project engineer, led a team of 2 designers to
deliver the design solutions, drawing packages on time.
* Mentored junior engineers, interns, managed designers working on
the projects, and participated in peer reviews.
* Coordinated with vendors, construction managers, facility
managers, testing and operations team regularly.
* Performed cost estimation, quantity takeoffs, monitored resources,
budget, and presented progress reports.
* Produced equipment layout, fabrication, test, rigging drawings,
detailed technical reports (applied loads, structural design and lift
analysis reports), installation, operation and removal procedures for
clients.
* Developed System Integration Tests (SIT) for all projects to simulate
operational loading scenarios and verified structural adequacy prior
to shipping offshore. Reviewed pre/post NDE reports, performed
damage assessment.
* Visited offshore oil/gas platforms, construction facilities (onshore)
for site surveying and performed equipment layout checks prior to
design of the interface steel structures.
* Applied engineering principles such as strength of materials, soil
mechanics, structural steel design, and performed stability (lateral,
gravity, live loads) checks on the foundations, design structures.
* Performed the following types of structural design and analysis
checks:
> Global and local strength checks on decks and jackets
> Spreader Beam, Bar, Plate Girder Beam checks
> Lifteye Design – in-plane, out-of-plane, eccentrically loaded
> Eccentrically loaded welded and bolted connections
> Torsion, Shear, Bending controlled beams
> Beam Column Design, Bearing Pressure
> Column Buckling, Shear Flow
