Job Summary:

The Mechanical Engineer TVC will be responsible for assisting and augmenting day-to-day capacity of the Mechanical Engineering team working on the client's Global Data Center - Execution Engineering team. This includes design & localization of new hyperscale data centers and campuses, supporting operations staff with engineering solutions, and streamlining construction issues resolutions.

This person will be responsible for but not limited to the following:

Contractor shall review and assist technical development of mechanical systems (both airside & waterside) for hyperscale data centers including campus planning, general layout/arrangements, CFD & noise modeling, climate data evaluations, hydraulic analyses, pipe sizing, bin hour analyses, etc

Contractor shall oversee A/E design consultants and provide direction or escalation in accordance with established engineering standards

Contractor shall peer review A/E design consultants' deliverables including drawing sets,

specifications, sequence of operations, calculations, models, etc. and provide comments &

resolutions in accordance with established engineering standards

Review and advise on potential value engineering opportunities

Analyze for redundancies, failure modes, and Single Points Of Failure (SPOFs) while working with Reliability, Availability & Maintainability (RAM) modelers to verify conformance

Contractor shall be capable of rapid conceptual sketches using CAD or BIM for visualization and

spatial/dimensional validations for internal purposes only (i.e.: conveying ideas, streamlining communication, etc.)

Experience with waterless cooling solutions (i.e.: air-cooled chillers, dry coolers, airside economizer/IDEC/DX, etc.) preferred but not required

Experience with EPA regulations and emissions after-treatment solutions for diesel generators preferred but not required
