The Company
Hardman Construction, Inc. is a bridge, foundation and geotechnical contractor based in Ludington, Michigan. For over 30 years, the Company has relied on the combined strengths of its skilled tradespeople and management team to build a reputation for quality, safety, and profitability.  The Company performs work in a highly specialized and technical segment of the construction industry, which creates the opportunity for long-term careers for its team of over 100 employees.  
Hardman Construction’s project list includes many new bridge construction projects in Michigan, bridge renovation and restoration projects, and hundreds of projects in the specialty foundation and earth retention industry. Some recent project highlights for the team include:
  • Large-scale earth retention project at the new Red Wings Arena in Detroit

  • Micropile foundations for the Federal Court House in Detroit
  • Specialty foundations at Spectrum Health’s East Grand Rapids Expansion
  • Rebuilding the Country Road 420 bridge over the Escanaba River in Delta County
Given the demanding and technical nature of the heavy civil construction that Hardman performs, employees have the opportunity to work on diverse project types in Michigan and beyond. Our team is fortunate to be able to see the physical result of over 1000 projects that the Company has worked on over the years.  
The Role
Hardman’s Field/Project Engineers have the opportunity to work on heavy civil projects around the state of Michigan, working on the project team to support all aspects of construction. Field Engineers are responsible for a wide range of duties, from ordering and securing materials and deliveries to tracking quantities, preparing and sending submittals and other critical communication, and helping the Project Managers and Superintendents in all areas where support is needed.
Our newest Engineer will have the opportunity to work in the MDOT bridge construction and with the geotechnical division. The position requires spending approximately 80% of the time in the field on project sites, so a desire to travel around Michigan is key.
Training and working under experienced Project Managers, the Field Engineer will have a clear path to develop into a Project Manager and hopefully into a key leader within the Company.
  • At least one year of exposure in the heavy/highway construction industry, preferably with a civil contractor.
  • Bachelor Degree in Civil Engineering or Construction Management
  • 100% commitment to safety
