Parsons was recently successful in pursuing an APD project encompassing multiple miles of segmental guideway supporting light rail traffic. As a new member of our bridge team, you will be expected to lead the design of the elevated guideway consisting of a precast, post-tensioned segmental superstructure. The superstructure design work will involve complex structural modelling as well as more traditional structural design techniques. Applicants with a solid background in the understanding of structural behavior are encouraged to apply. All superstructure design work will be based out of our local Denver office which is known within our company as a Segmental Design Center of Excellence. Willingness to travel to the project site is preferred but not required for this position.

Other ongoing projects staffed out of our Denver office include the structural modelling required to raise the bridge deck of an existing cabled stayed bridge, long span segmental alternatives analysis, and investigations into the novel use of segmental construction methods as applied to super-tall buildings, and multiple signature pedestrian bridges.

We have proficiency in all bridge designs including Long Span bridges, Segmental bridges, Cable Stayed bridges, Movable bridges and Suspension Bridges as well as conventional bridges.

  • Act in an advisory capacity to senior management personnel on engineering related matters.

  • Performs other responsibilities associated with this position as may be appropriate.
