The Construction Project Manager will oversee all Urbn Leaf building projects. Responsibilities include but are not limited to managing construction decisions, budgeting, carrying out quality control, manage to store opening schedules, reviewing designs, and creating proposals.
The person in this role will oversee the construction process from conceptualization to completion. This includes oversight of architects, designers, construction supervisors, contractors, and various trade workers. The Construction Project Manager will report on the progress of the project to the Executive Team and local officials. This person must have excellent planning skills and be able to effectively schedule tasks, meet deadlines, and follow a budget. They also must effectively manage contractors and vendors, monitoring quality of work performed, and ensuring tasks are completed within budgetary and time restrictions. The Construction Project Manager must be able to read blueprints and schematics, building codes, and relevant laws to ensure the project is in compliance with building standards and regulations.
Much of the work is completed at project sites, which may involve some level of physical risk. Though most work occurs within typical business hours, construction project managers must be available at all times in case of emergency. The Construction Project Manager must have extensive knowledge of tools, processes, and materials involved in general construction. This person must be able to remain calm under pressure, act decisively, maintain oversight of the budget, be flexible, and effectively manage multiple tasks simultaneously in a fast-paced environment. Assertive and attentive communication skills are essential. This job requires a lot of multitasking, so the ability to stay calm under pressure while keeping deadlines is important. Though the Construction Project Manager will be based in an office, much of the work is done in the field, which will occasionally require out-of-town travel, anticipated to be limited to California at this time.
