SHN is seeking an Entry Level Civil Engineer-in-Training for our Coos Bay, Oregon regional office. Our projects’ goals are many, such as improving water quality (an example is our work on the new wastewater treatment plant in Coos Bay), reducing seismic risks and improving aesthetic qualities of our built environment (such as under-grounding overhead utilities in Lincoln City), and assisting in economic development and recovery of our small rural communities (numerous projects in the energy and commercial development sectors). SHN values education and training, and supports staff as they work towards licensing and other certifications.
SHN is actively searching for a mid/senior level surveyor, preferably holding PLS certification in California. If you have reached our website through the professional land surveyor associations of California, Oregon, or Nevada, thanks for reading the discussion board thread, and you may want to skip to the job advertisement or go straight to the job description.
If you’re interested based on our Facebook or other social media posts, here is some additional information. Our surveying group is lead by Tom Herman, PLS, who is our Principal Surveyor and also the Regional Manager of our Willits office. Three others who hold PLS certifications are based in Willits and Redding. Walter White, PLS, is our senior surveyor based in our Coos Bay, OR office. Tom and Walter are supported by a team of experienced survey technicians. This PLS opportunity is based in our Eureka office.
We are pleased to welcome six (6!) professionals to SHN. Competition for outstanding people is keen, with the US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting an 8% increase in civil engineering employment to 2024. Attracting experienced and enthusiastic people in turn attracts more of the same, and SHN is all the better for it. We are still accepting applications for civil engineers, a surveyor, and a survey technician. Our most recent staff additions are: Dale Roper, PE, PLS (Redding), Justin Wilson, PE (Coos Bay), Jennifer Figueroa-Golder (Arcata), Roger Klakken (Eureka), Richard Poole, EIT (Coos Bay), and Gary Slawson (Coos Bay). Zack Carter will be completing his intership with us, and returning to Oregon State University in September. To read short bios, please "read more".
The Wiyot Tribe has been selected as the first recipient of the US EPA’s Region 9 Excellence in Site Reuse Award, for the environmental cleanup of the Tuluwat Village, and resumption of the World Renewal Ceremony. The Tribe contacted Mike Foget, Principal of Civil Engineering and the cleanup’s project manager, to acknowledge SHN’s role in making “this project a reality and success.” The Tribe also asked if Mike could be interviewed, to share insights and lessons learned that could assist other Brownfield projects. This project also won the American Council of Engineering Companies Engineering Excellence Award in 2013.
Welcome back to another nose-to-the-grindstone semester/quarter! We salute your extreme work ethic, and your ability to keep focused on the goal of graduating and working to make the world a better place. Here are some things to think about when you’re waiting for that numeric modeling program to run.
A career is an individual’s journey of learning and work, and whether SHN is a quick side-trip or a long and rewarding segment depends on the similarities of our future paths. SHN’s path is one that values enhancing our communities and creating a rewarding environment for employees and shareholders. We value team work, life-long learning, and family, health and work balance.
SHN geologists investigated a known fault system to determine potential seismic hazards to the dam. Trenchscan technology was used to record images that were later digitally merged to create a single image of the entire trenched area.
Beginning in 2012, SHN’s Biologist of Record managed a crew of 30 biologists that identified nesting locations of birds, prepared and implemented salmonid relocation and dewatering plans, conducted Northern Spotted Owl surveys, and prepared daily and quarterly reports documenting the interactions between construction activities and regulated biological resources.
Since 1995, SHN has performed environmental site investigation, hydrology studies, surveys, permitting, remediation design, and infrastructure evaluation and repair designs at 46 sites for CAL FIRE, the California state agency for real estate services (DGS-RESD), and the Division of the State Architect.
With Ann Baker Landscape Architecture, SHN assisted in the design of the Museum’s new outdoor nature education facility, incorporating stormwater wetlands and bioretention areas, and encouraging groundwater recharge with infiltration trenches and permeable pavements.
“The Peninsula Light Company and its members will continue to benefit from your efforts long into the future due to the project’s sustainability. On my part, I would like to express my congratulation and gratitude for the professionalism, effort, and persistence you exhibited during the execution of this challenging HDD project. I would be proud to work alongside any of your crew members and staff that brought success to this project.”
