Identifies, advocates for and advises on energy efficiency improvements in new construction and existing industrial, commercial and multi-family buildings and facilities. Participates in the delivery of cost effective energy efficiency solutions to commercial buildings while contributing to a mission-driven, creative, enjoyable and stimulating work environment.
Internal - Work is normally performed in climate controlled office environment, where exposure to conditions of extreme heat/cold, poor ventilation, fumes and gases is very limited. Noise level is moderate and includes sounds of normal office equipment (computers, telephones, etc.). No known environmental hazards are encountered in normal performance of internal job duties.
External - Work requires moderate to extensive travel (2 – 4 days per week) to visit sites where efficiency measures are possible, proposed or installed. Very limited travel outside of the state is required. Site visits may include entry into existing residential and light commercial buildings or construction sites. Site visits may involve examination of mechanical or electrical systems and/or processes, as well as building components.
Moderate exposure to heat/cold, poor ventilation, building material and finishing product off-gases and particulates (fiberglass fibers and sheet-rock dust). Limited exposure to other air-borne contaminants such as mold spores and animal frey. Dust masks are provided for tasks that may result in particulate exposure.
Noise level is moderate and includes sounds of diagnostic equipment, and may include building construction noises (hammering, air compressors, and heavy equipment such as tractors and forklifts.)
Known environmental hazards may be encountered including suspected asbestos containing insulation. Disturbance and handling of such material is not required and appropriate precautions and training is made per OSHA guidelines.
Work involves standing and walking for brief periods of time, but many duties are performed from a seated position. There is potential for eyestrain from reading detailed materials and computer screen. Deadlines, workloads during peak periods and changing priorities may cause increased stress levels. Work may include occasional pushing, pulling, or carrying objects weighing approximately 40 pounds such as files, documents, and some equipment. Work normally requires finger dexterity and eye-hand coordination to operate computer keyboards at a moderate skill level. Repetitive motion injuries may occur. Company will provide adaptive devices as needed.
External work involves travel in reliable employee provided transportation, inspecting and crawling in confined spaces such as attics and crawlspaces as well as climbing ladders. Carrying of testing equipment weighing approximately 50 pounds is required.
