Kingsody Inter-Continental;
As the Project team leader, reporting to the Senior Project Manager. I participate fully with the Senior Project Manager/Executive in the choosing of trades Sub contractors and Vendors, and also in firing them if the case comes to that. I keep them in check of our ultimate goal, which is achieving the successful completion of each project as targeted, with the aid of the company`s Supers. I obtain all required permits, from Fed, State or local government authorities and arranging for their occasional inspection as the case may be, this, in some ways, means being the PRO of the company in these areas. Analyzing, avoiding or at worst attacking anything that will hinder the progress of the project, and making it as smooth as possible are all within my portfolio, during and outside the projects period, this also required extensive traveling.
