hvac estimating department manager
HVAC/Mechanical Construction - Major Projects, Commercial/Institutional/Industrial
Location: Seattle, WA Metro Area
Compensation: $130K - 150K+ Bonus & full benefits
About this opportunity:
Are you looking for a more sophisticated construction environment to put your HVAC/mechanical estimating and systems knowledge to use? This is an opportunity to take the reigns and build a mechanical estimating department for a rapidly growing, financially sturdy mechanical group from the ground up with a group committed to state of the art, high-tech capabilities and a vast portfolio of projects.
Department Leadership - Rarely is the path to leadership this clear with a clean slate to build on. We’re centralizing the estimating function into its own department and are looking for a pro to lead the way.
Estimating Process Definition - Define estimating tools, technology, standards and processes for best practices to manage risk on large commercial and industrial projects ($20+M)
Conceptual Design Collaboration – more sophisticated projects and methods. Get involved early with conceptual budgets on negotiated and design-build work directly with clients and the pre-construction team rather than stripping material and labor that someone else specified.
One of a Kind Development Opportunity - This is the stretch role in a career defining moment that most estimators need to distinguish themselves as they climb to an executive position…it won’t be easy but success will be impossible to ignore!
Hi-Profile Projects - Hi-Rise, Healthcare, Hospitality, Data Centers...the Pacific Northwest is full of a steady diet of complex projects.
What we are looking for:
5-10+ years of HVAC/mechanical construction career progression with an emphasis on estimating and preconstruction.
Strong technical knowledge in dry side HVAC (sheet metal and equipment).
A student of the game – beyond technical knowledge, someone that is a professional about their craft and passionate about best practices and excellence in the delivered product.
Exposure to major projects. Hi-rise, hospital/healthcare, hospitality, hi-tech, biopharma, higher education, laboratory, and government project experience are all representative of the type of backgrounds we are looking for.
Conceptual estimating, and negotiated project experience is a plus, but competitive hard bid experience is also valued.
Great communicator that inspires others to desire and achieve great project results for long term customers
Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience in construction, or engineering related discipline. Field experience is a strong asset as well.
This is a challenging and demanding role. We are looking for a strong leader that is hungry to make an impact and grow their career in this organization. Compensation will be commensurate with your experience, but expect a competitive base, incentives and benefits. If this sounds like a role you would like to discuss, please send me your qualifications or contact me, Zack Troyer, at (855)-267-7446 x 206. All inquiries will be treated confidentially.
