Electrical Designer

Location: Fayetteville, Arkansas

As part of the Fayetteville Water Design Center for Garver, this Electrical Designer will work with the electrical design team to develop electrical designs in support of various projects for Garver’s Water Design Center.  Diversity in high-volume, custom plant projects will allow this designer the opportunity to be hands-on with design of electrical power, lighting, controls, communications, and other electrical systems.
General responsibilities will include electrical design and drafting as required for a variety of water and wastewater projects, but the majority of the expected assignments will be related to developing electrical power distribution and control system designs for water and wastewater treatments plants, water distribution systems, and wastewater collection systems.
Day to day responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:
  • Developing detailed designs for water and wastewater treatment electrical power distribution and control systems under the supervision of a professional engineer.
  • Working closely with other team members to coordinate the project requirements
  • Developing and drafting detailed plans and specifications including one-line diagrams, power plans, lighting plans, and control diagrams
  • Coordinating with various electrical equipment vendors
  • Developing construction cost estimates and participating in quality assurance and control procedures
Some travel may be required, as projects may require field work for site assessment of project locations and support during construction. Due to the collaborative nature of coordination for large infrastructure projects, candidates must have the ability to seek out and resolve issues through close interaction with other project team members.  In addition, the candidate shall be able to maintain a positive team attitude and interpersonal effectiveness to recruit, develop and maintain an efficient and productive team.
