The Utility Engineer performs maintenance work, including a variety of tasks in the building trades. Although work requires the use of journey-level work tools and the ability to perform operations in several of the building maintenance trades, the skill required is less than what would be required of a journey-level worker in a particular trade. Under general supervision, the employee performs a variety of tasks necessary for the maintenance and repair of mechanical, plumbing, electrical, vertical transportation, telecom/datacom, roofing and building envelope, structural, access control, interior floor/wall/ceiling, building monitoring, control, swimming pools and water features/ fountains, and other support systems. The Utility Engineer works individually or as a team member to plan and implement major and minor installations, modifications and repairs to buildings, vehicles, equipment, and grounds. Public contact is extensive, primarily involving department and outside staff, vendors, and contractors for the purpose of exchanging information pertaining to project assessment, procedures, materials, and timelines. A moderate degree of independent judgment and creativity are required to follow and modify standard, prescribed trade techniques to troubleshoot, complete given assignments, and to resolve minor and some major problems that arise. Consequences of errors in judgment can be costly in materials, public relations, and in employee time. A Utility Engineer may be assigned to work at a single campus or at multiple campuses; and may be assigned to work individually or in a team under the direction of higher level engineers and/or management.
