Role Summary

As an owner’s representative and construction project manager, early-stage project development and preconstruction phasing is the most critical element of the project planning process. This role is responsible for leading project development of realistic and achievable project budgets, timelines, permitting and compliance strategies, and other activities needed to prepare the owner and project team for construction phasing, including outfitting of FF&E/OS&E for commercial projects. Portfolio will include multiple concurrent projects throughout Florida, the Sunbelt region, and nationally for customers. Preconstruction strategies and customer relationships may include professional advisory (CMa), construction manager as constructor (CMc), and/or traditional general contracting (GC) capacities. In all relationship scenarios this role will directly lead, manage, and control all commercial construction preconstruction phasing processes. Projects may involve interior buildouts, full renovations and alterations, and new construction.
