As a Junior HVAC Design Engineer / Estimator, you use drafting software to create a design of mechanical layouts for installation. With your attention to detail, you will review all aspects of the design, the relationship of each part to another, and each part to the system as a whole. You then enter and review data to determine material and labor requirements and prepare itemized lists. Finally, you compute cost factors and prepare designs in a timely manner.

In this position, you analyze job blueprints, specifications, and proposals to prepare time, cost, and labor estimates. Though you do spend a lot of time working independently at a computer, your communication and interpersonal skills come in handy as you consult with other departments, clients, vendors, or other individuals to discuss and formulate estimates and resolve issues. You enjoy and take pride in all aspects of your work!

Additionally, you analyze completed projects to compare estimated costs to actual costs and determine the reasons for any discrepancies. In this way, you come up with strategies to improve future cost estimating procedures. You also identify cost trends and assist management in cost reduction and process improvement efforts. Knowing that your hard work helps ensure the best outcome for our customers as well as continued profitability for our company gives you great satisfaction.
