Helbling is representing a repeat client, a higher education institution in New Jersey, in conducting an executive search to secure a Project Manager, Facilities & Campus Operations.
Our client's Division of Facilities and Campus Operations provides planning and design, construction, maintenance and campus operations services in support of the university’s mission and strategic goals while employing the latest sustainable technologies. Key services include building repair and maintenance, grounds and landscaping, space planning, and custodial services. In addition, the division directly supervises all significant capital design and construction activity on campus. The Office of Design and Construction provides project management services for capital improvement projects, including new construction and renovation projects on campus. Renovation projects include improvements to classrooms, offices, laboratories, athletics facilities, student housing, and student services, as well as updates to the infrastructure to keep campus and its buildings operational.
Reporting to the Senior Project Manager, the Project Manager will oversee projects from planning/programming and design through construction, inspections, move-in, and closeout, and may supervise the work of Assistant Project Managers, Project Coordinator, and student employees as needed. The Project Manager will be expected to act as the primary point of contact and will be the Fiscal Officer for the project(s) assigned to him or her. This requires the ability to build, lead, and manage a project team, to create a project plan, define the scope of work by soliciting and synthesizing input from end-users and departmental leadership, and facilitate communications between facilities staff, consultants, and other key stakeholders. As the Fiscal Officer, the Project Manager will assist procuring the design and construction services required and will be responsible for the financial success of his or her project(s).
