The ability to manage contractual obligations to the customer, while
managing project risks and opportunities. The ability to review drawings,
plans and contract specifications and perform quantity material take offs,
calculate man-hours and labor cost - all in an effort to provide a detailed

foolishness, and or non-sense on a project site, Safety is truly #1. First.
I have the ability to develop and interpret CPM schedules. I have the
ability to supervise, coordinate, and sequence project work activities to
minimize interference between various trades and contractors on

subcontractors, and craft labor in an effort to ensure that project
construction complies with drawings and specifications in support of
project schedules overall quality and project costs.
