ARUSI LLC Engineering (ARUSI) has the combined technical abilities, breadth and depth of expertise and resources that are hard to match anywhere. For project management, ARUSI represents some of the best professionals in the southwestern United States. Site investigation, design analysis, project design and specifications preparation, cost estimates, hazardous material evaluation, testing, commissioning, as‐built drawings, telecommunications and power system studies associated with high‐voltage power transmission lines, substations, and related facility projects are well within our collective means, and their project experience and procedural efficiency will ensure that we can execute and oversee projects that produce high quality results—on time and on or under budget.
Arusi’s Project Engineering bridges the boundaries between engineering and project management, leading the technical workers who contribute to the building of structures or products. In some cases, the project engineer is the same as project manager but in most cases these two professionals have a joint responsibility for leading a project.
Each project is assigned a Project Manager who is the primary point of contact. They monitor and manage the communications stream between technical personnel assigned to the project. They are also responsible for monitoring all contract costs, and maintaining cost control and subcontracted services.
The role of ARUSI’s project engineer can often be described as that of a liaison between the project manager and the technical disciplines involved in a project. The project engineer is also often the primary technical point of contact for the consumer.
Arusi’s project engineer’s responsibilities include schedule preparation, pre-planning and resource forecasting for engineering and other technical activities relating to the project. They may be also in charge of the performance management of vendors. They assure the accuracy of financial forecasts, which tie-in to project schedules. They ensure projects are completed according to project plans. ARUSI’s project engineers manage project team resources and training and develop extensive project management experience and expertise. When project teams are structured so that multiple specialty disciplines report to the project engineer, then two important responsibilities of the project engineer, then two important responsibilities of the project engineer are inter-discipline coordination and overall quality control of the work.
ARUSI’s project engineers do not design work, but instead represent the contractor out in the field, help trades people interpret the job’s design, ensure the job is constructed according to the project plans and assist project controls, including budgeting, scheduling and planning. In some cases a project engineer is responsible for assisting the assigned project manager with regard to design and project and with the execution of one or more simultaneous projects in accordance with valid, executed contract, per ARUSI’s policies and procedures and work instructions for customized and standardized plans.
ARUSI’s typical responsibilities may include: daily operations of field work activities and organizations of subcontractors; interpretation of drawings for tradesmen; review of engineering deliverables; redlining drawings; regular project status reports; budget monitoring and trend tracking; bills of materials creation and maintenance; effective communications between engineering, technical, and project control groups; and assistance to the project manager.
