The key position, working directly under company ownership, would be charged with taking leadership on estimating and hand off of project efforts to field construction personnel; essentially from initial bid through estimating and then takeoff.

The ideal candidate would be able to prepare budgets, do value engineering and assemble / manage competitive bids. Most projects include aspects of expansion, TI and renovation/restoration, though they may be ground up efforts as well. While they often are from plan, some can be from informal conversations and discussions that require conceptualized thinking without formal direction. The projects range from high end hotels and resort complexes to historic restoration initiatives.

In addition to hands on estimating, the position also serves as the vital office connect and support to project managers and field personnel on all endeavors. Additionally, participating in business development support thru client relationship management and job walks, etc.

Projects are generally located in the domestic United State with some travel, but can on rare occasion include engagements internationally (primarily Caribbean). They tend to range from smaller restoration/expansion undertakings to large multi-million dollar developments.

The right match to the opportunity would be an individual with background in Construction, Engineering, Landscape Architecture or related field. Hotel or Resort construction, or understanding of those types of venue components, would be desired, but key is understanding the basics or building construction and being able to accurately bid work including materials, labor, MEP, earthwork and other elements. With primary focus on vertical. An individual that can apply their knowledge in these areas to the hotel domain should be able to make a transition to the organization.

Daily work activities will include reading and interpreting construction blueprints and plans and then building complex bids that include work force, logistics, equipment and materials. At any given time, this might include a handful to thirty active projects.


This could be the ideal position for a senior level professional seeking to find a long-term home with a thriving organization that is stable and has a wealth of challenging and high-profile projects. It could also be the right place for a talented mid- to senior level professional with skills and experience who is now seeking to take on a challenge and step up in responsibility with a larger organization. While ownership is looking for the right fit, they are also willing to invest time into development and mentorship. This role serves as one of the key players at the organization and is in the executive leadership circle. Counted on as a vital and critical resource.

The desire is to someone that is technically proficient, confident, flexible and can hit the ground running. This includes being able to mentor staff and enhance the current in-house estimating system.

The company offers competitive compensation and strong benefits package including health/vision/dental insurance, holiday / vacation, 401k, profit sharing, etc. Relocation support can be provided as well.

Progression and other profit opportunities would also be available. Anything can be structured for the right professional.
