Exciting Opportunity for an intern looking to gain experience in Heavy Civil Project Estimating.

About Us: Landmark Excavating, is a General Contractor company based in American Fork UT, with a second location in St. George UT. We specialize in a wide array of horizontal construction projects, including Public Work, UDOT Roadways, Residential Subdivisions, Special Services District, and underground Utilities. We take pride in our statewide presence and commitment to excellence. We currently have ongoing projects in Salt Lake County, Wasatch County, Utah County, and Washington County.

If you’re an intern looking to gain hands-on experience in Estimating, we want to hear from you. In this role you will work alongside our Estimator to gain a better understanding of what goes into bidding for a job. Our tenured team of Estimators will guide you through the bidding process, from identifying projects within scope, participating in pre-bid meetings, and having discussion with the over team to tackle projects and keep work in front of the crews. You’ll learn the handoff process after a job has been awarded, to the setup and buy out new projects.
Once you’ve completed your internship, you’ll have a clear understanding of pre-construction in a heavy civil environment.
