Helbling is conducting a search on behalf of a higher education institution in Western Pennsylvania to secure a University Engineer and Assistant Vice President (AVP) for Facilities Management and Campus Services (FMCS). Reporting to the Associate Vice President for FMCS, this role contributes to the institution by providing long-range strategic and master asset planning for building and utility systems on a campus-wide scale. The AVP leads the capital renewal plan for all university buildings and infrastructure (plant replacement value > $2.5B) and handles commissioning for new construction and renovations.
Flexibility, excellence, and passion are vital qualities within FMCS. Inclusion, collaboration, and cultural sensitivity are valued competencies. Therefore, our client is in search of a team member who is able to effectively interact with a varied population of internal and external partners at a high level of integrity. They are looking for someone who shares their values and who will support the mission of the institution through their work.
You should be able and willing to work outside of normal business hours as occasional evening and weekend work is necessary given the nature of facilities management. Note, this position requires sufficient maneuverability to survey and inspect assets in the field when traveling to campus facilities and construction sites.
