This Mechanical Engineer Lead performs mechanical systems testing in compliance with a project schedule. The mechanical engineer should have a working knowledge of mechanical P&IDs, electrical one-line drawings and a general understanding of mechanical systems: Mechanical (HVAC) systems, air distribution (fans, ducting, VAVs), refrigeration systems, chilled water systems, hot water heating systems, steam heating systems and fire protection equipment. He/she will drive the functional performance test for each mechanical system assigned and is expected to be able to competently follow approved test scripts. Needs to be self-motivated and willing to actively engage contractors/vendors to set up testing to complete all required activities for project success
The witness, verification and validation of proper execution of commissioning tests is to be documented by the Mechanical Engineer Lead. The quality of documentation is vital to success of program and the Mechanical Engineer Lead is expected to have knowledge and ability to complete all document requirements and ability to lead project independently.
· Lead and steer all mechanical commissioning and testing activities for all contracted testing and commissioning work related to mechanical, cooling, HVAC, airflow, water, refrigerant/return piping and plumbing systems (and possibly structural and civil expertise) at the client`s site according to agreed Scope of Works
· Guide technical discussion and clarification with client acting as and advisor/coordinator for any technical, mechanical, cooling, HVAC, airflow, water, refrigerant/return piping and plumbing related topics and in some circumstances structural and civil engineering related topics
· Act as technical expert and advisory for the client, advising on feasibility, practicality and any cost, resource impact of solution, methods and work procedures at all stages of the commissioning process
· Fulfil the role of on-site technical lead and coordinate obtaining correct information from equipment vendors, client, contactors and site owners to make decision and lead
· Participate and contribute to meetings with the client, consultants, other contractors to provide expert technical opinion. Work with all commissioning stakeholders to sign-off and commit to a common and agreed commissioning deliverables scope and outline items
· Ensuring all relevant certification and required documentation have been provided by construction contractors, equipment/system vendors to be approved and used as reference for commissioning documentation development
· Review, check, analyze, and provide opinion on design documents such as BoD, OPR, mechanical, cooling, HVAC, ducting, piping and plumbing drawings, schematics, diagrams and installation drawings as well as approve documents meeting commissioning requirements of the client
· Support engineering and commissioning deliverables development, working together with team members
· Develop, create, review and achieve approval of test scripts, Inspection Test Plans (ITPs)
· Develop, create, review, achieve approval and initiate Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) or Factory Witness Tests (FWT)according to the needs of the client
· Ensure delivery quality is consistent with testing and commissioning requirement from client and the tested outcome is consistent with the client`s desired specification and performance requirements
· Enforce and work to the client`s project timelines and supervise all mechanical, cooling, ducting, piping and flow/balancing commissioning activities according to the client`s commissioning schedule and timeline
· Steer and guide all stakeholders (general contractors, equipment suppliers, BEP contractors) to achieve commissioning outcomes to the prerequisites of the client BoD and OPR, periodically assessing and evaluating the conformance, progress and suitability of planned work in line with the agreed commissioning deliverables
· Supervising, monitoring all mechanical, cooling, airflow, piping and plumbing commissioning works ensuring the tests are effective for all associated Cx levels
· Facilitating effective handover of equipment, facilities and outcomes from commissioning, ensuring all required certification and associated records, testing/verification documentation have been checked and approved and signed-off from vendors, construction contractors as well as by the company for test performance confirmation
· Check that critical decisions, actions and planning regarding commissioning are shared, reviewed and developed together with the company's global expertise to ensure consistency with the company`s global approach and policy, standards
