The Superintendent is arguably the most important role on a building construction project site—this individual’s leadership is often considered the most critical factor in a project’s success. The Superintendent is responsible for overseeing and managing all day-to-day job site activities, including project team performance, site conditions, compliance with our “build smart” approach and safety and quality standards, compliance with scope, and effective management of trade partners. A primary responsibility of this individual is to establish and implement the baseline schedule based on the contracts, while proactively addressing challenges that could impact the progress of work and ensuring that the work performed is consistent with the contracted scope of work.
The Superintendent must be an exceptional communicator, negotiator and arbitrator, and will serve as the client’s direct point of contact on projects. The Superintendent must be a strong leader, communicator and advocate for team collaboration and innovation, and must have the ability to manage, cultivate and mentor team members to promote their professional growth.
