Design is powerful. The work we do as engineers, architects, planners and construction professionals reshapes environments, reinvents spaces, and strengthens communities for a better, more sustainable world. None of this happens if we stand still, are complacent, or resign ourselves to accepting the status quo.
At Gannett Fleming, we are looking for talented professionals that will join us as we deliver innovation, leadership, and results to our clients. Since our inception, over 100 years ago, we’ve remained agile, and offer a client-centric focus, that most larger firms simply cannot provide.
We want to do great things; we need your help
As our new Senior Environmental Planner, you’ll oversee and manage the entire environmental assessment process, starting with planning through approval. Working with a team of both junior and senior planners, your efforts will have a substantial impact on the progress and quality of major projects.
We are currently engaged in exciting, transformative projects in the GTA with major clients including Metrolinx and the TTC. Your work will ensure approval of these projects, and allow for safe and effective implementation.
You’ll be joining a new and growing group of environmental planners who are supporting our major projects, in addition to smaller contracts. You’ll be an essential part of this group as we assemble a critical mass of planners; as you mentor junior planners and coordinate the activities of the group, you’ll have a major impact on its success.
Technically speaking, your role will involve assessing both sites and designs for legislative compliance. One of the key challenges will involve adapting and accommodating the assessment process through various iterations; as our work changes in scope, you’ll need to be ready to adjust and revise plans according to new circumstances.
Your tasks will include:
- Maintain regular contact with clients and provide accurate updates/reports in non-specialist terms
- Oversee the activity of junior planners, both in office and remotely
- Lead the environmental assessment process and manage related schedules and budgets
- Attend project meetings and provide technical expertise for clients, other planners/engineers, and management
- Draft environmental assessment reports and other documents, including drawings/graphics
- Liaise with regulatory agencies, clients and other consultants
- Coordinate and manage work of subconsultants in terms of both project management and finance
- Provide consultation services to internal and external stakeholders, including public, residents, local government, etc.
- Support business development functions (proposal writing etc.)
- Manage environmental mitigation and reports through planning, design, contract specifications, and construction
