Superintendent II / 2 years at the company

JOB DUTIES

I’m responsible for running the day-to-day field operations of a project. I oversee all construction and safety operations in the field, communicate with the owner, architect, project team and subcontractors, as well as organize the job site.

WHAT DOES THIS JOB AND WORKING AT THIS COMPANY MEAN TO YOU?

Construction is one of the most challenging and rewarding industries to work in. Taking someone’s vision that starts out as a blueprint drawing and getting to build it from scratch into a client’s dream office space, new high-rise hotel or a critical health care facility is truly an amazing accomplishment. The amount of effort, planning and collaboration it takes to achieve this is tremendous. To be a part of that experience and see it all come together in the end is something I’m truly passionate about, love and enjoy. Over the course of my career, I’ve been fortunate to work for multiple general contractors, but to put it simply, Leopardo is one of the best. Beyond the construction expertise they deliver, Leopardo has taken me in and treated me like part of the family from day one—always valuing and encouraging my input and participation. I couldn’t be more thankful getting to build for such a truly caring company.

THE JOB: EDUCATION AND TRAINING

REQUIREMENTS

Bachelor’s degree in construction management or related field, or supervisory experience in building construction trades. Understanding of construction processes, safety and technologies. OSHA 30 and first aid/CPR certification is a plus.

SKILLS

The two most important traits for a successful career in construction is having problem solving skills and great communication/people skills. Unexpected challenges turn up daily on a construction site that require quick and often outside the box solutions to keep the project moving. Additionally, construction is all about the people. Any given project can require hundreds if not thousands of people to work together and collaborate, so being able to navigate and enjoy that process is critical.
