The primary work responsibilities include: acting as the general contractor for large construction and renovation projects; supervising skilled and semi-skilled workers engaged in building construction trades (carpentry and construction); responding to complaints concerning carpentry and construction maintenance in city-owned/-operated facilities; preparing cost estimates for project materials, labor, time and equipment needed to complete projects; preparing project budgets; coordinating the work of carpentry and construction crews with other departments’ crews and/or outside contractors; and overseeing the preparation and maintenance of required paperwork. Work is performed with limited supervision and the incumbent is required to exercise independent judgment and technical expertise.
