A typical day entails preparing and updating project management plans, project budgets, managing projects based on scheduled activity and milestones. Preparing status reports. Monitoring and following up with Project Consultants on the preparation and submission of outputs for assigned housing development projects. Monitoring the submission of housing plans to regulatory agencies to obtain approval prior to project implementation.
