Reporting to the project vice president, you may oversee five to ten project engineers and project managers on individual or multiple projects. Your primary responsibility will be interfacing directly with the client, including contract negotiations, marketing and preconstruction. We’ll look to you to focus on each project’s big-picture perspective, ensuring your team is handling the current needs and anticipating future needs. 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.
In our unique business model you will be involved in all stages from initial interviews to project completion. 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
