In 100 words or less…the role of a senior project manager

Maybe you’ve put in five years developing a track record in one market sector and are looking to apply that knowledge to new experiences. Or maybe you’ve been around the block are ready to craft that experience into a specialty, while keeping yourself sharp with a wide range of practice roles and types. We understand the potential the crossroads of your experience and your future can hold. At Mancini, we too are expanding our horizons, growing into new specialties, new kinds of processes, and new ways to wow clients.

Does this sound like you?

In short, Mancini is looking for design-oriented, and technically robust intermediate project architects who are driven by all phases of a project and know that the design process continues beyond the conception.

The goods of a senior project manager, if you got them

As an intermediate project architect at Mancini, you are a part of a dynamic and evolving team.  Putting your experience into action, you will work with the project design lead, senior technical designer or technical director, project manager and supporting junior staff to conceptualize and execute interior designs, participating in all phases of the project but taking on the lead in design development, construction documentation and construction administration phases. Acting as a keystone to the full project and consultant teams’ coordination, you are responsible for verifying that the design intent and project as a whole are realized in a feasible, high-quality constructible end-result.

A day in the life of a senior project manager

An intermediate project architect’s responsibilities vary throughout the day and on each project. They vary by phase of the project, too, but generally they include things like:

  • Interpreting design concepts and translating them into workable construction systems
  • Researching zoning and building code and applying findings to the project
  • Preparing details, working drawings, and specifications
  • Working as part of a team in developing construction documents
  • Contributing toward contract administration efforts, including quality control
  • Working with consultants, contractors, fabricators, specification writers, regulatory agencies, and the client to meet project objectives
  • Providing mentorship to junior architectural staff, educating them in the operations of our industry and the expectations for quality at our firm
  • Participating in marketing efforts, including presentations, in an effort to win new projects

What you bring as a senior project manager

Okay, let’s talk about what you bring to the table because chances are you have so much to offer. Missing something on this list but think you’ve still got something to offer? Send us your information anyway.

Overall, we value people who are:

  • Multifaceted like a Diamond: Sure, the people we’re looking for have studied architecture and have had five years of experience in our industry or more. We value people who think and act in an interdisciplinary spirit allows our teams to see a project from a variety of angles and contribute in all sorts of unexpectedly valuable ways.
  • Self-driven: If a problem comes up, their pride won’t get in the way of admitting they need help, but they’ll research a problem thoroughly to see if they can solve it themselves.
  • Flexible: They understand every problem has a unique context and a unique solution. They know that while experience is important, relying on approaches that worked in the past won’t always solve the problems of the future.
  • Supernaturally Organized: Their work proceeds in a logical, thoroughly documented way; even if their work was half-way finished, another architect would be able to look at it and immediately understand how it came to be.
  • In the Digital Thick of It: Knowing AutoCAD, Revit, and Adobe Creative Suite is mandatory. Knowing Rhino and/or SketchUp would be great. And knowing Lumion would be fantastic. All that said, for Mancini—a technology company at its core—we look for people who are exploring technologies we have yet to tap.
