An established San Francisco Design/Build company seeking a Project Manager for high-end custom residential, small multi-family residential and occasionally commercial projects.  Projects are primarily located in San Francisco,  both new construction and remodels.  We offer integrated architecture and construction services to clients, as well as doing our own Design/Build Development.

You will manage multiple projects with $500,000.00 to $5,000,000.00 budgets. Experience and degree in construction management would be ideal, but hands-on experience is equally important.  We have found a person who has spent time in both the field and the office is the best fit for this position.  You need to know how to build, as well as to manage.  If you have more experience in the field, we have other office staff to help  support the management tasks.  A more builder focused PM would be ideal for this position, someone who understands construction details, process and production.

The Project Manager is the primary link between the office and job site; the designers and site workers; the client and the project.  Highly developed interpersonal skills are required.  You will be responsible for the project budget, schedule, owner and sub contracts, permit management, subcontractor management, material procurement, , etc.  Our PM’s split time between the office and the job site, and need to be comfortable in both environments.  A willingness to “do what is needed” approach” is ideal.
