🔗Project Superintendent/ Project Manager
Website Deep Roots Craftsmen
Deep Roots Craftsmen, a historic preservation contractor based in Fort Collins, Colorado, is looking for a site super/ project manager to join our team this fall. If you’re interested in gaining valuable experience and working across the State of Colorado, we would love to hear from you. We operate with a small crew but are working to add to our crew with trained craftsmen to take on a growing workload. With craftsman roots in New England, the owner (Jon Sargent) has been performing preservation work across the state of Colorado for the past six years, after similar work on the east coast. Thanks in large part to one of the strongest grant programs in the country, preservation is thriving in Colorado. Most of our projects are partly state-funded, leading to an interesting and always varying range of non-profit clients and project sites. Our projects have ranged from historic barns to schoolhouses, to churches to museum spaces and additions/ renovations on private homes.
Whereas site superintendent and project manager are often two separate positions at larger construction firms, the two are blended in this role at Deep Roots. Candidates can anticipate approximately 20-25% of the role related to administrative project management duties and 80% of role related to on-site, and hands-on supervision.
In the position, you would be managing a crew of 2-6 workers, primarily on site, completing all facets of historic preservation work in the field. The range of skills and tasks varies by job but the ideal candidate will have working knowledge and experience with the actual craft skills related to traditional joinery, structural conceptual knowledge, envelope installation, rough and finish carpentry skills, and window/door construction. The candidate must exhibit the aptitude and track record of successfully managing projects, both from a logistics and instructional standpoint, but also in terms of cost tracking. Common duties will include the following:
– Execution of trades work on site (anticipated 50% minimum time with tools in hand)
– Coordinate with company ownership and estimating to handle all aspects of project
– Project planning and scheduling of necessary manpower and logistics
– Coordination of all subcontractors and scheduling of their work
– On-site worker instruction and management of quality control
– Coordinate necessary inspections
– Manage site safety and jobsite cleanliness
– Manage client contact and communication
– Cost tracking and risk management tracking throughout the duration of projects
– Maintain weekly update reports issued to the client and weekly cost reports for internal cost tracking
– Ability to balance more than one concurrent project in this same role
– Possible assistance with cost estimating
– Assist with project submittals and materials acquisition/ delivery
– Assist in hiring for additional employees
Often times our jobs are beyond commuting distance and require weekly travel and transportation to different regions of the state. It can be a challenging schedule to spend much of the busy season on the road, but we have found the variety of interesting projects to be well worth the travel.
Balanced with field work, there would also be opportunities for shop work in our shop space in Fort Collins. In the shop we typically perform work such as window and door restoration, window fabrication for reproduction windows, and small timber framing tasks. With a current backlog of window restoration, a candidate with window experience or interest to learn is a major plus as we look for managers for shop work as well.
