DBI Projects is a multidisciplinary firm that specializes in development management, project management and real estate advisory services. Since 2002, we have partnered with a diverse list of non-profit, private, and city clients to execute ambitious capital projects and real estate transactions. Our projects span from leading arts and culture organizations to schools to student housing and more. DBI takes full responsibility for the success of each project, regardless of any outside or unanticipated factors, and we are seeking individuals who embody this mentality in their approach.

Currently, DBI is seeking to expand its project leadership to take on a series of new, large-scale projects. We are looking to bring on a new Project Executive or Senior Project Manager to lead upcoming new projects or projects soon to be under construction. DBI values an individual who has the ability and drive to work hard, who is highly motivated and who is not afraid to take on assignments and endeavors while implementing a result driven attitude. DBI leaders also are expected to develop the skill sets of DBI team members working under them.

Role Overview:

Project Executives and Senior Project Managers are the primary point of contact with the client and for all project consultants. They are responsible for overall budget and schedule management, in addition to strategic planning with the client to anticipate and address project specific needs. As DBI is typically one of the first consultants hired for a project, Project Executives and Senior Project Managers are responsible for assisting the client in developing an overall project framework and selecting the appropriate project team to ensure successful and timely completion of the project.

Required Experience:

Prospective applicants should have 10-20 years of experience in an architecture, an engineering or a construction manager practice or with a project management firm. Applicants should have direct experience in all phases of construction and should have served in the role of project executive or project lead on at least three projects greater than 50,000 SF. For DBI’s upcoming projects, we are specifically interested in applicants who have worked on the following types of projects:

-         Transportation or Transit-Oriented Development Projects

-         Education Campus Master Planning

-         Public infrastructure or parkland projects

Additionally, previous work experience should include direct involvement in:

-        Ground up construction

-        Technically complex projects

-        Site supervision and construction administration

-        Coordinating between or with A/E teams, in addition to coordinating with contractors

-        Schedule and budget management

Applicants should have strong written and verbal communication skills and be prepared to lead project meetings. Additionally, the position requires a high level of proficiency in MS Office (Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, and, particularly, Excel). Experience with AutoCAD, Bluebeam, and Adobe Creative Suite are particularly valuable as well, as is knowledge of construction scheduling programs such as MS Projects.

 

Applicants should send their resume and cover letter to jobs@dbi-projects.com.
