Technical Studies engineer/technician M/F

Implements innovative and effective technical solutions.

Xavier, manager of technical studies
What do I most like about my profession? The technical interest and the scale of the projects. The transport infrastructure sector allows me to work on very large and very beautiful projects which take shape in only 3 or 4 years, often abroad. I also like alternating the engineering phase at head office with postings on site during the construction phase. Seeing wonderful projects come to life and contributing to improving people’s lives is a great source of satisfaction.

Your main duties

As part of the Technical Studies department, you carry out engineering studies for Building and Civil Works projects.

Depending on your profile, your main duties will include:

  • Produce the preliminary drawings for the structure
  • Adapt or modify the preliminary dimensions of the structure according to the type of soil
  • Carry out the structural calculations and propose solutions allowing technical optimisation and structural variants
  • Direct the work of external design offices
  • Reduce and analyse risks relating to the project
  • Supervision of the compliance of operations with standards imposed by QSE rules

You work in collaboration with the Sales and Construction teams and are involved in two key stages of the project:

  • for the preliminary design, to define the main principles of the structure or building and to provide the Sales teams with all the elements needed to estimate the cost and produce an effective and innovative offer,
  • for the working design, to define the structure of building in every detail and provide the drawings required for execution of the works by the Construction teams.

Your future path

Position of expert or manager in Technical Studies or Cost Estimation.

Possible transfers, particularly to Construction.
