Geological Engineering Technician

Geological Engineering Technician positions available at Berkel and Company Contractors, Inc. To apply, submit resume and cover letter to: Scott MacDonald, HR Director, Berkel and Company Contractors, Inc., 2649 S. 142nd Street, P.O. Box 335, Bonner Springs, Kansas 66012. Minimum Educational requirement: Associate's Degree in Resources Drilling/Blasting or Resources Drilling Technician. Job duties: Working under the direct supervision of Berkel Engineers and Regional Managers, the Geological Engineering Technician will use his knowledge in soil studies; subsurface techniques; applied mathematics; technical reporting; hydraulics; ecology and environment; geotechnical, environmental, and environmental drilling techniques; blast-hole drilling techniques; rock formations; blasting techniques; and geotechnical reporting to assist Berkel engineers with the following job duties and tasks:

  1. Pre-project Planning Activities: The Geological Engineering Technician will use his scientific knowledge to assist the Berkel Project Engineer specifically to:
    • Evaluate the different soil characteristics and ecological/environmental concerns, including for example, the different types of rock formations, water content and volume, etc., present in each project;
    • Recommend the appropriate design and support system that will best suit each project, using his specific knowledge drilling/blasting techniques, and in ecology and the environment, to select the most effective, safety conscious techniques which will cause the least impact to our ecology systems and environment. He will also continue to monitor the soil and environment and he will make adjustments and changes to his recommendations to Berkel engineers as the projects progress.
  2. Engineering Support Activities: The Geological Engineering Technician will use his scientific knowledge to assist the Berkel Project Engineer specifically to:
    • Determine the best drilling and flushing methods;
    • Determine and select the best drilling equipment to be utilized, based on his knowledge of unique soil features, including water volume and rock formations present in each project;
    • Calculate and communicate the correct pressure and volume to apply in order to drill effectively. He will use his knowledge in applied mathematics to calculate the correct unit conversion for our equipment, to determine scales, ratios, and drilling velocity, and to calculate the correct slopes and elevation;
    • Prepare geotechnical reports: Analyze data and prepare the proper documentation for each project according to legal requirements;
    • Complete drill logs: this is one of the most important factors in maintaining a safe work site.

The Geological Engineering Technician will:

  • Test and evaluate the soil and environmental issues present at each project. Determine how different soils interact with ground anchors. Identify the geology of what is being drilled and how it is supported. Advise on rock formations and how different stresses affect different types of rock. Analyze the soil to determine the most effective drilling/and or blasting technique;
  • Detect flood plains and advise engineers on flood stages;
  • Recommend the best drilling and/or blasting techniques and methods to use at different stages of our projects. Specifically recommend which equipment to use to drill more effectively. For example, determine the correct type of metallurgy of drill bits, and correct flushing methods and media for flushing fluids;
  • Calculate drilling locations to avoid utilities, and determine geological failure angles in different soil types;
  • Calculate scales and ratios to determine correct pressure and up hole velocity for drilling;
  • Calculate unit conversion for the equipment;
  • Read and analyze geotechnical reports to assist engineers in scheduling and estimating. Prepare geotechnical reports for Berkel projects;
  • Complete drill logs to ensure a safe work site.
