Facility Inspector/Assessor-Architectural/Mechanical/Electrical at Cardno


Charlottesville, VA
Cardno is a professional infrastructure, environmental and social development services company dedicated to improving the lives of people and communities around the world. We are seeking to build a team of interdisciplinary Facility Assessors to work on a large-scale Facility Condition Assessment program at U.S. Army Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Assessors must have knowledge and experience in one or more of the following: mechanical systems, electrical systems, building shell, (including roofing systems), as well as structural and interior elements.
The team will conduct assessments of facilities and systems on buildings and infrastructure at Fort Bragg on a full-time basis. Therefore, the ideal candidates would be located proximate to Fayetteville, NC (i.e. within daily commuting distance). The local Fayetteville team will join several other interdisciplinary teams who travel to the installation for scheduled multi-week deployments throughout the period of performance. Cardno will provide office space locally to support team meetings, perform data quality assurance checks, and other non-field activities. Other follow-on assignments may be available at locations throughout the United States and worldwide.

Job Description:

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
  • Conduct an inventory of client facilities properly classifying building components in accordance with ASTM UNIFORMAT II.
  • Perform assessments of client facilities using professional expertise and judgment to determine physical condition and conformance with specifications and building codes.
  • Experience using facility condition assessment software. Knowledge of BUILDER™ web-based Sustainment Management System (SMS) software application developed by the US Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Research and Development Center’s Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) is highly desirable; however, Cardno will train good candidates in the use of this SMS software.
