Job Profile

I have an opportunity for a claims engineer to join Mott MacDonald’s ever expanding transportation team in Boston and embark one of the largest projects of its nature in the region.

Alongside our joint venture partner, Mott MacDonald has been engaged by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to provide construction management services for the red line and orange line infrastructure improvements program (RL / OL program).

Monitoring and coordinating construction activities between the client, construction team, design consultants and the construction contractor.

Job Description

Within the program, there are 7 distinct projects across 2 metro lines. You will join the program as the claims engineer for the entire program. Projects include the construction management of a maintenance facility which is the most complex, longest running and most interesting. This aspect of the project is live and in continuous use by the client. You will be supported in your role as claims engineer by the construction management team and an estimator.

  • Understanding the duties and activities associated with the contract
