Mr. Godbout has over 6 years of experience in the construction and engineering industries. Specifically, he has worked on-site as a field engineer and field supervisor on construction projects in the power, oil & gas, chemical and commercial sectors. In those positions, Mr. Godbout had extensive responsibilities including estimating, design and constructability reviews, work-planning, risk management, man-power scheduling and forecasting, cost management, contract management, craft management, productivity analysis, safety and quality oversight, quality control inspection and documentation, change management, material purchasing, material management, sub-contract management, turnover documentation control, resolving design conflicts and contract close-out. He has supervised civil, concrete, mechanical and piping operations all over North America including California, Maryland and Western Canada.

The majority of Mr. Godbout’s experience is in heavy industrial construction projects. He was on-site for the construction of two combined cycle natural gas power plants and two upgrades to crude oil sands mining and treatment facilities. He estimated and planned the construction of the mechanical equipment and chute-work in a Potash mining and production facility. Most recently, Mr. Godbout was on-site planning the construction of 36 blade columns and access platforms for an NFL stadium in California.

Mr. Godbout started his career at Exponent assisting with the defense against a $17 million construction claim. He contributed immediately to trial preparation and arbitration support by analyzing quality control documentation, productivity reports, quantity take-offs, change orders and other construction documentation.

Project Experience

Power Plant: Mr. Godbout supervised the civil works and the installation of mechanical and piping systems on two combined cycle natural gas power plants in Western Canada with a combined contract value of $1.1 Billion. He was responsible for the safety and productivity of the construction of mechanical, piping and civil operations, as well as schedule progression, cost management, contract management, quality control and documentation, inventory management and resolving design conflicts throughout construction.

Oil & Gas: Mr. Godbout managed the turnover and completion of the mechanical systems in a $500 million replacement and upgrade of an open pit oil sands mine and treatment facility in Northern Canada. He worked closely with the contract owner and construction management to coordinate the timely turnover of mechanical systems and necessary documentation. Mr. Godbout supervised the installation of piping, pipeline and mechanical systems for a $200 million construction project that involved the addition of new thickener vessels and transport facilities of crude oil sand tailings. Responsible for managing and projecting future manpower requirements and all other resources required to complete construction.

Chemical: Mr. Godbout estimated and planned the construction of the mechanical systems in a $250 million MPEI contract for a potash mine and treatment facility in Central Canada. Managed a team of engineers who performed accurate quantity take-offs and created effective work plans to complete construction efficiently.

LNG Export Facility: Mr. Godbout managed the installation, testing and commissioning of mechanical and piping systems in a $3.8 billion LNG Terminal Expansion project in Maryland. He performed work during a scheduled outage of the existing facility to tie-in new piping, pipeline and mechanical systems without interrupting plant operations.

Recreation: Mr. Godbout planned the erection of concrete columns and access platforms for an NFL stadium in Los Angeles. He coordinated closely with design engineers and other contractors towards the collective effort of erecting the 160’ concrete columns safely and under budget.

LPG: Mr. Godbout participated in the defense against a $17 million construction claim by performing productivity analysis, reviewing quantity impacts due to design changes, assisting in scheduling delay analysis, and reviewing quality documentation and change orders.
