Position description
Currently, we are seeking a Senior Project Manager to join our State of Tennessee Pre-Planning Team in Nashville, TN

The Pre-Planning Team is tasked with reviewing all Capital Building Projects for all State Agencies (excluding Higher Education). This will include review of business need, scope, budget and risks and subsequently drafting a Business Case Report for each individual project. Projects range from $ 100K to $ 50M and include a very wide range of project types from historic restorations, interior fit-up, mechanical systems replacement/upgrade, life safety projects, deferred maintenance and new ground-up construction.
