1. Essential Duties and Responsibilities
  • Look ahead at the schedule and prepare for projects upcoming. This includes understanding material layout, specifications, and learning who the essential decision makers are on the project.
  • Travel to the jobsite to measure spaces with the Proliner and AutoCAD. Verification of quoted drawings and making sure that all structures are prepared to accept the chosen medium. This may include remedial work negotiated with the contactor.
  • Finalize all details with essential decision makers to bring back a completed drawing to the shop ready for fabrication.
  • Return to the jobsite on scheduled installation day to take the lead amongst other crew members. Organize and execute the installation in a way that reflects efficiency and producing a high quality end product.
  1. Physical Demands
  • This role requires that the person be in very good physical shape with the ability to maintain this condition over time. Exercise, a good diet, and a regular stretching routine are critical to maintain body condition that allows for high performance on installation day.
  • Some projects require lifts of 150lbs or over, so the proper lifting technique is essential. These demands can be mitigated with proper use of lifting tools and dollies, lessening the impact on the body.
  1. Prerequisite Experience
  • The Project Manager must have at least 3 years previous experience in the construction industry, with emphasis on project management and finish carpentry. Command of construction math and computer skills are critical, combined with the ability to learn AutoCAD with in-house training.
  • Spatial planning experience is essential to aid the project manager in visualizing the end product. This will also support the Project Manager’s ability to effectively move pieces into spaces without compromising the safety of the install crew or damaging the workspace.
  1. Communication Skills
  • Ability to communicate effectively with the front office, clientele, and fellow crew members. The Project Manager must be able to absorb and reflect thoughts to and from the salespeople in the front office, as well as to and from the personnel in charge of making final decisions on the project itself. There is a delicate balance of listening to the client’s ideas, and offering project managers’ own thoughts based on previous experience.
  • Ability to solve problems under pressure. The process of construction changes along the way, making it very important for the Project Manager to be able to think on the fly and offer up viable solutions to issues that have come up during the construction process. Often times the success or failure of a project relies on this ability to ascertain what problems exist and come up with creative solutions that save the day.
  1. Reporting Relationships
  • Reports to the Outside Operations Manager directly, and is responsible for effective communication with the Production Manager, Sales Staff, Scheduling, and fellow Project Managers.
  1. Work Schedule
  • The day to day work schedule of the Project Manger is variable, but is mostly contained between the hours of 7a.m. and 4p.m. Monday through Friday. There are occasions, however, when deadlines call for the Project Manager to work longer days of up to 12 hours.
  • The Project Manager is expected to keep up with email and phone correspondence with a company supplied mobile phone. Sometimes issues need to be taken care of outside of normal work hours.
