Watson, PE, MSEM Charlotte, NC 28202 Cell Phone: 704-779-1776 LinkedIn Profile: www.linkedin.com/pub/david-watson-pe-msem/28/85a/b96 Career Summary Highly-motivated PE with Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) degree from UNC-Charlotte who has served in multiple professional roles utilizing a wide variety of civil engineering skills. An able communicator with a proven track record for project success in all project phases with many compliments from clients, supervisors, peers and the public. MSEM degree is regarded as a technical alternative to the MBA and includes combining MBA courses with courses to lead/manage resources and technologies associated with engineering in many disciplines. Professional experience includes 19 years on engineering projects in civil/site, environmental, geotechnical, transportation, structures and construction. Served in a variety of roles including but not limited to project management, engineering lead supervision, design, modeling, regulatory engineering review, specifications, geotechnical design applications, construction oversight/inspection/cost estimates, geotechnical/construction materials testing and site surveying. This work was accomplished along with collaboration with other engineering disciplines, such as Mechanical and Electrical, other professions (Human Resources, Accounting, Procurement, Subcontracts, Attorneys, etc) as well as with clients (Energy, Government, Developers, etc.) and the public. Industry experience includes Nuclear Power (Major Function) & Fossil Power (As-Needed Support) Plants with The Shaw Group, various private industrial/commercial/residential sites as well as state/local government road/highway & storm water (flood control & water quality improvement) projects. Successful contributions to these projects include prompt permitting approvals, significant construction cost savings, high-quality service/product meeting or exceeding client expectations and significant improvement to engineering schedules to improve approaches to the project execution plan. In addition to the MSEM program courses, five additional graduate level civil/environmental engineering courses relating to water resources/storm water engineering were completed as electives and additional courses. Experience and Background 08/2008 – 01/2013 Engineer 6 - Lead Civil Engineer – Site Specific, Civil/Structural/Architectural (CSA) Shaw Group Inc., Power - Nuclear, Charlotte, North Carolina Lead CSA (and Geotechnical) Engineering groups to produce deliverables for site development and site-specific infrastructure for the first two nuclear power plants (Vogtle Units 3 & 4 - 1.5 yrs as a Lead and 2 yrs as a Senior/Acting Lead and VC Summer Units 2 & 3 - 1 yr as a Lead) to be constructed in over 30 years and lead efforts for civil/site design of Levy Units 1 & 2. As a result of these efforts by the CSA Engineering Groups, site development (grading/earthwork, nuclear Island excavations/backfill, roads, railroads, erosion control, drainage) and site-specific infrastructure (foundations for tanks/heavy lift derick/cooling towers/buildings, MSE Walls, Waterproofing Membrane, major utilities, waste water retention basins, blowdown sump, raw water intake, pipe supports) has been completed or currently under construction or subcontract bidding. Engineering schedule planning, managing engineering design processes & checklists, conflict resolutions, staffing projections/assignments, manage training records for staff, reviewing all deliverables, verification of flood models, managing schedule/payment milestones, conducting & preparation of meetings w/ client and staff, managing CSA estimated quantity toolkits, interface with staff with standard plant design, construction phase strategic planning.
