Inclusions

Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing, for greater certainty, it includes positions that have, as their primary purpose, responsibility for one or more of the following activities:

  1. the conceptual and detailed planning of buildings and related works, the planning and design of outdoor environments for human use, the development of codes and standards, and the management and monitoring of construction projects;
  2. the planning, design, construction or maintenance of physical or chemical processes, systems, structures or equipment; and the development or application of engineering standards or procedures including:
    1. the planning, design, construction or maintenance of buildings, equipment, structures or systems such as transportation, telecommunications, utilities or water use projects;
    2. the planning or conduct of environmental engineering services such as heating and air conditioning, or lighting;
    3. the planning or conduct of engineering works or studies concerned with the control of such matters as radio wave frequency usage, product quality, industrial safety or electrical utilities;
    4. the planning or conduct of engineering works or studies concerned with environmental problems related to air, water or land resources, where a comprehensive knowledge of engineering is the prime requirement;
    5. the planning or conduct of site exploration, development or engineering works control surveys;
    6. the conduct of cost-benefit or feasibility studies; and
