He uses his past experience working in a vendor company to communicate design scope more effectively and in as timely a manner as possible.
  • Multi-discipline engineering background: Paul’s wide array of project experience gives him the ability to manage small and large engineering and support groups who complete the detailed work. Paul’s background allows him to lead the following teams, to understand their key deliverable, and to anticipate the issues they frequently discover when fast-tracking a project:
    • Process engineering
    • Plant layout & piping
    • Civil and structural engineering
    • Mechanical engineering
    • Control systems engineering (instrumentation and automation)
    • Electrical engineering
    • Risk management
  • Project controls background: Paul is well practiced at all aspects of planning, scheduling, estimating, cost control analysis and reporting. He can provide analysis or manage controls personnel to complete the following:
    • Estimating to provide capital cost estimates to facilitate decision-making
    • Planning/Scheduling to develop and coordinate scheduled tasks, resources or budgets to track project performance
    • Cost tracking, forecasting, trending and budget analysis
    • Reporting, presenting and communicating matters related to earned progress, budgets, and schedules

Paul’s first and foremost responsibility is the management of the engineering team’s effort to deliver a project safely, at the desired quality, on time and on budget.

Role of the PE

Project Engineering is typically the management of engineering and technical projects. This includes management of personnel, budget, and scheduling to deliver a successful project outcome that is fit for purpose.

In addition to these factors, a significant consideration of the work of project engineers is the safety of the project. They will work to minimize the risks associated with engineering projects.

Paul is trained to act as the coordinating figure, and will deal with stakeholders across all areas of the project. He will interpret the needs, expectations, and limitations of each, and bring them together with the aim of successful project delivery.
