The Role

Reporting to the project Vice President, the Senior Project Manager is responsible for the management of a single large project, or multiple smaller projects. The SPM manages projects from the inception of the budget phase, through preconstruction, and into construction. At the same time, you’ll need to take a hands-on approach in order to stay on top of what is happening at all levels and ensure your team is handling all current and future needs. This role is broader than comparable roles at many other firms and will include estimating, chairing meetings, writing subcontracts, and handling negotiations. You’ll leverage your business acumen in budgeting, reporting, risk management and marketing.

Your key activities will include:

  • Managing profitability, staff development and client relations for positive results, in tandem with the superintendent
  • Overseeing and administering one or more construction projects at a time
  • Conducting constructability reviews, taking advantage of your problem-solving abilities
