Early Career

Picture the Possibilities as an Assistant Superintendent

You come into work every day knowing that you are a key part of building new and exciting projects.  It's a lot of pressure sometimes, but you enjoy being on site and thrive in a fast-paced environment.  Your co-workers look to you for answers, and your manager gives you the freedom to excel. When you walk down the street, you look at major projects and think "I know how that came together".

In the position of an Assistant Superintendent, we would ask you to do the following:

  • Assist the Superintendent in managing work on site to ensure the compliance of construction with the drawings and specifications
  • Support the Superintendent in planning and implementing schedules, determining manpower levels, material quantities, inspections, equipment and requirements are maintained
  • Monitor work performance to ensure project rules, procedures, and safety requirements are being followed
  • Advise Superintendent and Project Manager of potential problems, work interferences and schedule difficulties and assist in resolving these problems
  • Maintain and analyze up-to-date cost reports and submit necessary changes to ensure the project is delivered within budget
  • Meet with Owners, Consultants and Architects in a professional manner and have the ability to communicate effectively both the concerns and best interests of the company

Sounds challenging and exciting right? Here are a few of the attributes and experience you need to be successful in this position:

  • You have a construction related degree/diploma and three to five years of construction experience or an equivalent combination of technical training and experience
  • You have a working knowledge of scheduling, project management and contract software
  • Ability to correctly identify problem situations, evaluate alternative causes and produce workable solutions
