At the foundation of our responsibility is our commitment to inclusion and diversity and choosing to treat everyone with dignity and equality.

Our expertise encompasses gas turbines, steam turbines, reciprocating engines, gas plants, biomass plants, coal-fired boiler plants, chiller plants, high-voltage substation, and more. From the early stages of master planning and permitting through comprehensive detailed design, we partner with our clients to bring projects online fully and efficiently.CHA is looking for a Senior Engineer with both energy auditing and mechanical design experience. The design experience is particularly important in allowing the engineer to put together accurate scopes of work and cost estimates for the chosen ECMs in the energy audit. The Senior Engineer will perform energy audits and lead or assist with follow-up design after the energy audits are complete. The Senior Engineer will also at times lead teams of engineers on energy audits and help oversee some of the work being done in our NJ office.

In addition, the Senior Engineer will be part of a design team that implements the audit into a set of drawings issued for construction. The Senior Engineer's reports and calculations will be overseen by the mechanical energy group manager and CHA's Chief Energy Engineer. Typical energy audit tasks include completing field work on site, performing energy-related calculations, writing reports, and leading results meetings with clients. Calculations are typically done in spreadsheet format, though at times modeling software is used. Commissioning tasks include writing the following documents: commissioning plans, pre-functional checklists, functional checklists, O&M plans, M&V (measurement & verification) plans, and final reports. It also involves witnessing testing and equipment function on site. M&V may include deploying data loggers and performing extensive data analysis to determine results.
