Haskell’s Water and Wastewater Division is growing in both the size and number of projects, so the company now has created an opportunity – and possibly more than one – for a Quality Coordinator in the division.

For a construction or design professional with a background in quality, the position offers the chance to participate in design-phase activities and preconstruction, monitor first work in place and perform periodic inspections to ensure compliance with the design documents. They also will promote the use of materials, finishes, and details with excellent long-term quality performance.

“It's very rewarding,” said Gary Weiler, Senior Quality Subject Matter Expert. “We generally end up in a place that's suffering from neglect, and you really do get to leave the place better than you found it. It's very important work. No resources is more valuable than water. These municipalities have entrusted us to give them a resource that's going to last 25, 30, 50 years.”

Along with joint-venture partner CDM Smith, Haskell recently was selected to design and construct a new $100 to $150 million, state-of-the-art water treatment facility in Riviera Beach, Florida. It’s a job that demonstrates the magnitude of projects now in the works, the governmental nature of the work and the complex funding mechanisms that bring tax money and public oversight into the picture.

It also underlies the reason Haskell is, for the first time, embedding a Quality Coordinator in the Water Division full time.

“The industry is evolving, and Haskell's methodology within that industry is evolving,” Weiler said. “With multiyear projects, we have seen the benefit of having someone there who knows the details and knows commitments and personalities and likes and dislikes. Because of the nature of the work, it takes a lot of patience. You have added oversight a lot of times because of the ways these projects are funded, you know. That always brings along another set of eyes.”

The Quality Coordinator will implement and manage Haskell’s proprietary Quality Implementation Plan (QIP), a dynamic system that establishes goals and objectives at the beginning of each project that will lead to the highest-quality outcomes, then continually measures performance against those standards.

“Everybody connected to a project has a role to play in the Quality Implementation Plan,” Weiler said. “To me, that's what makes it unique. It's not just lip service. There's a commitment from the director of construction all the way through project managers, APMs, superintendents, quality coordinators, the whole list of folks on a project. They have inputs and they have things they're required to do within it. It keeps everybody focused on the quality aspect of a project.”

In addition to providing a highly collaborative and fast-paced environment, Haskell operates with the direction of six strategic pillars, the first of which is to “Provide Team Members the BEST Job of Their Lives.” It offers a robust benefits package that includes a 401k match and an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), which creates stock

“Working for Haskell is a different experience. I've had a long career, and I've been happy most places I've gone, but Haskell is a breed apart.”
