Assistant Construction Project Manger - Horizontal / Land Development

Sequence has been retained and is currently seeking a capable Entry to Mid-level Project Manager to undertake land development activities for sites throughout the Greater Sacramento region.

This is currently the most high-profile positions of its kind in Northern California, with our client (one of the nations largest development and construction organization) having a current residential and commercial land development backlog of five years and over a current dozen developments on the books. And acquisition has no plans of stopping efforts with business plan on track to double that pipeline.

Land development folks are just a rare breed. And we know it. Because we place more of them in niche roles that anyone else in the states.

Reporting directly to the Head of Land Development, this individual would be responsible for aiding in the preparation of things like quantity takeoffs, preliminary budgets, RFP’s, interacting with contractors, building bid spread assessment and recommendation, draft contracts, and managing field work at the community development sites level (pre-construction meetings, coordination between project subcontractors and municipal and City agencies; SWPP implementation coordination, and changed condition management).

Ideally, this includes someone with a good feel of land development site conditions. An individual that can look at the local geographical area and initially size up the challenges of a site from a gut level prior to diving deep into efforts. If you are in land development and have moved dirt, you know what that means and you are the right fit for this opportunity.

Generally speaking, duties include involvement in with a variety of internal departments to assess opportunity and then carry out site projects. Specifically things like:

  • Implement land development policies for the department to achieve desired results
  • Manage land development projects in support of the divisions business plan
  • Prepare detailed take offs from heavy-civil plans, prepare cost estimates and initial budgets for projects that account for all scopes of work needed to complete job.
  • Evaluating Plans and making value engineering recommendations.
  • Prepare draft bid scopes, RFP’s, and quantity sheets.
  • Prepare draft Bid Spreads and Bid Analysis to assist in award of projects.
  • Review and update all project budgets weekly/monthly as needed to keep accounting system current and accurate.
  • Prepare draft vendor work agreements, RFI’s, and changed conditions for review, and facilitate vendor invoice payment processing.
  • Assist managing consultants performing civil design, joint trench design, landscape design, walls, SWPP design, soils reports, plot plans as necessary to keep the flow of work from disrupting community schedule.
  • Review verify and report Contractor progress in field. Collect required weekly community reports and review for accuracy the same week they are to be received.
  • Verification and reporting of site conditions and Contractor conditions to validate changed conditions

Beyond planning experience and knowledgebase, the position requires a experience in the field. A bachelor’s degree would be preferred, but what really matters in experience estimating and managing heavy-civil project at the field level with capability to move to higher level project management.

This is an excellent opportunity to join an innovative and progressive organization and help grow the regional operation. A place where a motivated, self-starter interested in advancing their career and able/willing to work in a dynamic, fast-paced environment that is dominated by realistic expectations could find a long-term home. The role can be the ideal position for a senior level professional join a thriving organization that is stable and has a wealth of challenging initiatives. 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.

While based here in California, the organization would be open to relocating and capable professional into the area from another region. The position offers competitive compensation and strong benefits package including health/vision/dental insurance, holiday / vacation, performance bonus, 401k, etc. Relocation support can be provided as well. Progression and other profit opportunities would also be available.

Anything of reason can be structured for the right individual.
