Specifically, the Assistant Project Manager is required to be proficient at and accountable for the following:
  • Communication – The APM must maintain clear and effective communication with the PM and other team members on each project.
  • The client’s perception of how well TEEL performed is based on the Assistant Project Manager’s ability to communicate and the perception by the client that the project team operated the project efficiently and economically.
  • APM shall conduct weekly project meetings and issue meeting minutes. Assist PM/SPM in conducting weekly team meetings (as necessary) to keep team members informed and project on track.

  • Reviews and discusses pricing bids with executive management prior to submitting bids.
  • Project schedule from inception to completion. Control and coordination is the APM’s responsibility and shall be performed in conjunction with the PM and Superintendent and subcontractors to ensure commitments made on each project are fully achievable, realistic and completed.
  • Relationships - Cultivate and maintain good relations with clients, Owners, architects, engineers, subcontractors, suppliers, municipal authorities and other TEEL personnel with whom the APM will interface.
