 As one of America’s largest contractors, specifically focused on electrical construction projects, what we do is important, but how we do it is what makes us different.

Our values of People, Integrity, Excellence, Innovation, and Safety are reflected in how we treat one another, how we interact with customers, how we think about our business, and how we approach problems. We believe that building great communities is just as important as building great projects—and reflect that with our generous giving and volunteering programs.

You ensure everyone on the project team is clear on all aspects that relate to their specific responsibilities. You will also track project activities and manage project documentation including change orders, submittals, tracking logs, and related project documents.

Successful Assistant Project Managers are on the lookout for ways to improve or change processes and bring innovative and entrepreneurial thinking to a project. You’ll facilitate learning for yourself and others, leading team meetings and directing the work of project engineers and coordinators in partnership with the project manager and field team. To be effective, you’ll need to be comfortable communicating with groups of people and be able to speak and write clearly and professionally.
