Do you wish you worked on one of these?  Well, EllisDon Ottawa has new unique and large scale projects starting in the next few months; do not miss out on another opportunity to work on a legacy project. 


General Overview

Picture the Possibilities

You come into work every day knowing that you are a key part of building new and exciting projects.  It’s a lot of pressure sometimes, but you enjoy working in the field and being a part of the building process.  Your co-workers look to you for answers, and your manager gives you the freedom to excel. When you walk down the street, you look at major projects and think “I know how that came together”.

  • Find solutions to conflicts in structural, architectural, mechanical and electrical drawings and specifications and follow-up with consultants and sub-trades to completion
  • Ensure construction work complies with all engineering standards, codes, specifications and design instruction

Sounds challenging and exciting right? Here are a few of the attributes and experience you need to be successful in this position:
