Job Function
Construction & Extraction, Engineering & Architecture
I fit the description of the dedicated project management professional you are looking for. My experience in design, construction and contract administration includes over $600 million in private sector work, $400 million in city government contracts, $200 million in public schools program management work and $20 million in university/hospital work over the past 10 years. I have worked with a New York City Top 5 Design firm (Perkins Eastman Architects) and ENR-Top 100 CM-for-Fee firm (Greyhawk Construction Managers & Consultants) during the past 5 years. Being a hands-on leader who favors disciplined administrative controls, I have come up through the ranks as architectural intern, project architect, project manager/owner’s representative, construction engineer/manager, construction administrator, senior project manager, senior architect/contracting officer’s technical representative and deputy director for preconstruction and project management. February 2010: at Flushing Town Center, a ground-up, 14-acre, 3.2 million sq. ft. retail and residentai complex in Flushing, Queens, New York, with 725,000 sq. ft. of retail space, 1,026 luxury condominiums and parking for 2,650 vehicles, I saved the client $750,000 in 60 days by value engineering the interior architecture of the retail pedestrian concourses. My familiarity with government contracting comes from years of sourcing, proposing, negotiating, administrating and managing work for several city government agencies including the District of Columbia Housing Authority and the DC Public Schools system. Throughout my professional career I have consistently driven myself to meet challenges, exceed goals, and be an effective leader. I am known for completing projects on time, within budget and on specification while achieving quality excellence. I would have no problem with immediately stepping into a needed role with your company and would like to meet with you to discuss how I may be of service. Thank you.
