A Capital Construction Engineer/Architect II is the full performance level of work as a design or project engineer or architect for multi-year capital construction projects for State or local governments. Capital construction projects are not subject to review by a control or higher-level organization and may include office buildings, health care facilities, correctional institutions, multi-family housing, educational facilities, and public works structures and operations. In some cases, employees may function as both the design and project engineer or architect. Employees in this classification do not supervise other Engineers or Architects but may provide guidance and direction to engineering or architectural consultants.
Employees in this classification receive general supervision from the Capital Construction Engineer/Architect Supervisor or other designated official. Employees may be required to work evenings and weekends in order to attend public meetings and hearings. Employees may be subject to call-in for emergency situations, such as problems at construction sites. The work may require traveling throughout the State to construction sites where conditions may be noisy, dirty and uncomfortable.
Positions in this classification are evaluated by using the classification job evaluation methodology. The use of this method involves comparing the assigned duties and responsibilities of a position to the job criteria found in the Nature of Work and Examples of Work sections of the class specification.
The Capital Construction Engineer/Architect I and II are differentiated on the basis of degree of supervisory control exercised by the supervisor over the employees. The Capital Construction Engineer/Architect I performs duties under close supervision at times and under general supervision at other times depending on the complexity of the specific duty being performed. The Capital Construction Engineer/Architect II performs the full range of duties and responsibilities under general supervision. The Capital Construction Engineer/Architect II is differentiated from the Capital Construction Engineer/Architect Senior in that the Capital Construction Engineer/Architect Senior leads the work of other lower-level Capital Construction Engineers/Architects and is assigned the most complex capital projects and has the authority to certify final designs.
