Brief description of the work to be completed with the School Construction Authority: Manage small to medium sized general renovation projects from $75,000 to $1,000,000 procured through the Job Order Contracting program. Typical duration is 2 weeks to 3 months, managing multiple projects at any given time. We do not do any major new construction. Each project is assigned to a Superintendent. We will train the Superintendent in the Job Order Contracting procurement process (Joint Scope Meeting, Detailed Scope of Work, Reviewing Price Proposal) and construction permitting, scheduling, inspection, and close-out will follow standard procedures.
Full time position, day shift (8am-4pm, Monday - Friday) generally are the hours worked. However, most of the construction work occurs during the evening and on weekends. As a result, when projects are in construction, those hours may shift to accommodate the need for site visits. We will not require more than 40 hours per week.

We have been in business for over 20 years and have completed well over 400 projects. We currently have somewhere between 40-50 employees.
Because we are a woman-owned firm we are on contracts with larger Construction Management firms such as LiRo, Hill International, Jacobs, Tectonic, Gilbane, etc. and we help them to meet their WBE goals. We provide Project Managers, Inspectors, Estimators, Office Engineers and so on. Currently we are on about 10-15 different contracts.
