  • Lead your team in due diligence walks, assessing property conditions, marking up site plans, and estimating repair costs for completing each project



  • Check items off your to-do list all day long, while managing countless details like a whiz, and communicating with your team and stakeholders every step of the way
  • Ensure through the life of your projects that no detail is left out of place and that every project is completed on time, on budget, and with the utmost skill
  • Produce AIA industry-standard documents and contract documents, process change orders, and analyze tracking sheets
  • Help the Construction Manager with pricing and design tasks, including schematic drawings, 100% construction drawings, specification sheets, and scope/price documents



  • Oversee the procurement of construction services, including contract award and buyout
  • Enjoy searching high and low for valuable employee and contractor additions to your team
  • Manage and inspect contractors’ work, identifying tasks that can be performed safer, cleaner, or more efficiently
  • Create a welcoming space for new team members, ensuring them a smooth ride for the duration of their contract


Our Vision of What Success Looks Like

  • Your projects are completed on time, within budget, at the highest quality, and with a green emphasis.
  • The operational success rate for the projects you manage have never been higher, thanks to your close attention to detail and excellent recommendations for improvement.
