Senior Construction Inspector

Your Opportunity: Our Water sector, which brings together many of the world's top engineers and scientists, sees water a bit differently-as a single holistic system rather than as unconnected networks divided by jurisdictional boundaries. We use this perspective to help communities tap into water's potential. Throughout the life cycle of capture, use, reuse, and discharge, our team optimizes every facet of a water system. Whether a project calls for planners, designers, construction managers, or facility operators, we have the right experts to provide creative, yet practical, water solutions. Through our cost-effective strategies, we're helping communities increase their water efficiency and protect their water resources for future generations. Join our team as we create new ways to tap into water's vast potential.

Your Duties: Stantec is seeking a Senior Construction Inspector, with 15+ years of experience, to join our Water Sector as part of our construction management team. As a Senior Construction Inspector, you will utilize your construction experience and technical knowledge of municipal infrastructure, water and wastewater facilities, and general building projects to successfully execute and manage projects, under the supervision of the Construction Manager or Project Manager, and help us build and grow our practice.
