Berkeley National Laboratory is looking for an experienced Control Systems Engineer. I am currently responsible for 77 buildings and need someone to help maintain, upgrade and install new systems. We have Automated Logic, Johnson Controls MSEA, Johnson Controls PMI and Barrington Systems. Please feel free to ask me questions.
Engineering degree preferred but not required if you have enough technical experience.
Energy Management Engineer 3-77576
About Facilities: The Facilities Division provides a broad range of operations and support to the physical environment at Berkeley Lab including building, utility, grounds, operations and maintenance; capital projects design and construction management; workspace planning; custodial services; transportation services and shipping and receiving.
POSITION SUMMARY: Facilities Division has a current opening for a Energy Management Engineer - 3 to plan and conduct independent work with LBNL building and utility system control systems, requiring judgment in the evaluation, selection, application, operation, and adaptation of standard and emerging mechanical and energy efficiency engineering criteria, procedures and configurations, employing the most life-cycle cost effective approach on each project.
· Formulate and implement engineering detailed controls plans of multiple on-going projects in various stages of completion by preparing engineering analysis, conceptual designs, design criteria, construction documents, cost estimates, and maintenance information based on programmatic and institutional requirements. Perform controls programming and trouble shooting; verify system performance through commissioning. Organize and compile pertinent information and data for maintenance & operation equipment files and databases. Provide technical assistance to building trades during construction to assure controls systems installations and modifications meet LBNL criteria.
· Conduct studies in existing facilities including preparation of project proposals; defining project performance methodology; field measurements of variables; development of proposed modifications; retrofit cost estimation; life-cycle cost analysis; and preparation of project reports.
· Plan, schedule, conduct, and coordinate detailed engineering tasks to meet project time, cost, and performance requirements for all assigned projects. Coordinate engineering work consistent with all other design team disciplines and monitor the scope, schedule, and cost status of every active project. Resolve review relevant comments on construction documentation.
· Comply and assure adherence to requirements of all applicable Federal, DOE, State of California, LBNL, and industry design laws, regulations, orders, codes, directives, and standards adopted by the Laboratory, including safety regulations.
· Use computer-aided drafting, spreadsheet, and word processing programs to modify and update standard specifications, details, and other electronic files to satisfy project-specific requirements. Develop new, standard reports, CAD details, drawing notes, and equipment specifications to improve the quality and timeliness of services and deliverables.
· Prepare clear and concise controls system drawings, specifications and installation instructions, needing minimal rework for supervisory approval, and to minimize construction Requests for Information and Change Orders.
· Participate in commissioning and troubleshooting of building control systems, software programming, communications networks, controllers, devices, and calibration of sensors.
· May include complex tasks, such as resolving conflicting design requirements, unsuitability of conventional materials, difficult coordination requirements, and value engineering.
· May participate in other related activities as directed by Facilities Utility Manager.
· Substantial relevant experience designing, providing construction support services, control system commissioning, and operational trouble shooting of automatic control systems as applied to wet/dry laboratories, clean rooms, cold rooms, shops, and office facilities Must be familiar with industry-wide building and utility system automated controls and energy management systems such as Johnson Controls Metasys and Automated Logic Corporation (ALC) and possess the ability to accurately translate written sequences of operation into the program languages.
· Demonstrated experience coordinating the work of engineering/design disciplines and trade personnel. Skilled in negotiations, coordinating, and conflict management.
· Possess a thorough knowledge of engineering concepts, systems, calculations, applications, and construction methods, materials and economics. Familiar with applicable regulatory and industry safety codes and environmental regulations pertinent to controls engineering and construction, Federal, and State of California energy-efficiency codes.
· Demonstrated experience with automatic controls design, programming, construction support, commissioning, troubleshooting and system performance verification.
· Must be able to interpret and, when necessary, create clear, correct and concise technical drawings, suitable for construction.
· Demonstrated oral and written communication skills.
· Proficient with software applications related to engineering and design tasks. Proficient in AutoCADÔ, Johnson Controls, Inc. Metasys, Automated Logic (ALC), data analysis, and building energy use simulation software. Possesses a working knowledge of computerized planning and control methods. Knowledge of and experience with legacy Barrington control systems is desired, but not required.
· Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering discipline or equivalent.
· Familiar with applicable regulatory and industry safety codes and environmental regulations pertinent to controls engineering and construction Department of Energy desired
• Ability to work from top of ladders and/or scaffolds, hazardous systems and equipment occasionally, to perform fieldwork inspecting construction, equipment, systems, and structures.
