Major Objectives:

The Project Manager role is primarily responsible for the successful execution of construction activities required for successful project completion.  These tasks include a range of duties including scheduling, forecasting, budgeting, scope creation and management, site team coordination, problem solving, and detailed record keeping. 


It is expected that a Construction Project Manager is a great communicator both written and verbally.  This position requires a daily understanding of project activities and the ability to forecast.  Project Managers should be expert anticipators, keeping “reactive management” to a minimum.  All reporting and documentation required for success and organization are expected. 


This position works in unison with the Project Engineer as well as the site field team and reports directly to the VP of Construction.  The Project Manager must work to foster a great working relationship with the Project Engineer and entire field staff.  This team is in constant contact and are working to actively manage the project until completion.  It is understood that the Construction Project Manager has the full resources and support of The Garrett Companies and that we see this position as an extension of our entire team and office(s).  With that in mind, this position must use best judgment and discretion in decisions as well as utmost professionalism. 


This position will require periodic travel to active project sites and markets.  In this regard it should be stated that we view an active construction site the same as our corporate office – and expect this mentality from this position while traveling. 


It is the intent of this position to allow for the growth of the employee and opportunity to show successes.  It is expected that with success will come periodic adjustments to compensation.  This is a high level position within The Garrett Companies and our intent is for you to spend your career with us.
