Senior MEP Construction Expert
Huntington Beach, California - Full Time

You are a highly experienced, hands-on Senior MEP Construction Expert. You are the person others go to when they need a Subject Matter Expert in plumbing, mechanical, and electrical best practices, based on many years of real-world physical installation. This is not a traditional hands-on MEP construction role. Instead, this is a unique opportunity to step into a senior role that is not only less physically stressful, but one that also allows you to apply your knowledge and experience to provide insightful defect analysis, reporting, and expert witness testimony.

A career with Lombard Consulting Services Inc. advances professionals like you who thrive on challenges, accuracy, and creativity. You will join a dynamic team of construction professionals and serve alongside them as a trusted advisor to companies facing defect claims and potential litigation.

Our ideal Senior MEP Construction Expert is a top performer with ten or more years of plumbing experience, who enjoys collaborating with a team of senior construction professionals focused on superior service to our clients. You will spend time in one of our California offices and time on the road working with clients and visiting completed projects. We have offices in Huntington Beach and the Bay Area, and we will consider a qualified remote candidate located in another western state.

We serve as a collaborative partner, offering an array of essential services to a diverse clientele.
