Restoration Designer

Pacific Northwest Branch

Job Description

The ICF Restoration Team is currently seeking a Restoration Designer for our Pacific Northwest Branch.  ICF’s PNW Branch Restoration Team provides technical analyses and designs stream restoration and wetland mitigation projects throughout Washington, Oregon, and California. The main PNW Branch offices are located in Seattle, WA and Portland, OR and these offices would be the preferred location for the selected candidate’s home office. However, depending on the candidate’s experience, and at the request of the candidate, the home office could be ICF’s Sacramento, CA office. The ICF Restoration Team includes over 20 individuals that collaborate to deliver rewarding projects, carrying designs from conception through construction and multi-year monitoring. We are currently expanding our team working on riverine and estuary restoration designs and construction oversight for projects underway in Puget Sound, Washington, the Columbia River Basin, the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the Upper Santa Ana River near Los Angeles, and the Otay River in San Diego.

The Restoration Designer will be an integral member of a multi-disciplinary team providing habitat restoration planning, design, permitting, and construction assistance services to a variety of clients including federal agencies, state and local governments, Tribes, and non-profit organizations. The Restoration Designer will perform a hands-on role in the design and implementation of aquatic and riparian habitat restoration and wetland mitigation projects.

ICF values collaborative, motivated, creative, and curious individuals who thrive in a team environment.  Our project teams are comprised of technical experts from several unique technical disciplines who work together to achieve project goals.  No team member is an expert in all facets of a project, and thus we expect to work collectively to develop the best possible solution. Interested candidates should desire to be a member of a multidisciplinary team, able to effectively communicate their ideas, analyses, and designs to other team members who have different technical backgrounds.  Equally important, interested candidates must have the ability to use information provided by other team members to inform and guide their analyses and designs.

We work on projects located throughout the west coast, requiring collaboration across ICF offices.  Collaboration typically occurs through phone calls and virtual meetings, with occasional in-person meetings at other west coast offices.  A successful candidate must be willing to undertake periodic short-term travel (normally 1 or 2 days, rarely more than a week) to project sites to participate in meetings, perform data collection tasks and provide construction observation services.

Key Responsibilities

Key responsibilities for this position will typically be performed as directed by and under the supervision of a senior team member until the selected candidate gains sufficient experience to perform the tasks independently.  Tasks include:

  • Collect data at project sites, including being a member of a survey party performing topographic surveys.
  • Analyze basin hydrology and stream hydraulics.
  • Design specific elements of bank protection, instream grade control, fish passage structures at roadway crossings, side channels, dike breaches and large woody material habitat structures.
  • Draft sheets for construction plan sets.
  • Support obtaining environmental permits for project construction.
  • Perform construction observation.

Basic Qualifications

  • Bachelor's Degree in any field of study related to Stream and Aquatic Habitat Restoration.  Including but not limited to Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Hydrology, Geomorphology, Landscape Architecture, Land Surveying, and Natural Resource Ecology.
  • Experience using AutoCAD or Microstation to draft construction plan sheets (either 1 year professional work or 1 year of college level courses).

Desirable Skills/Experience

  • Second Bachelor’s Degree or Master's Degree in any field of study related to Stream and Aquatic Habitat Restoration processes or fish biology.
  • Experience performing hydrologic and hydraulic calculations and/or using numerical models.
  • Experience using AutoCAD Civil 3D and/or Microstation/In-Roads.
  • Experience using ArcGIS.
  • Experience surveying sites with traditional ground survey equipment and/or RTK GPS.
