WeWork is looking for a Construction Manager to help manage a regional portfolio of projects. As a member of the construction team, the successful candidate will work with a project team (including peers in Building Information Management, Architecture, Art & Graphics, Engineering, Estimation, Logistics, Sourcing, and Interior Design) to support all efforts that go into building a WeWork space. Most of the focus of the Construction Manager role is to implement exceptional product execution strategy, by leveraging a high level of integration with our building information workflows. Construction Managers at WeWork are expected to be excellent risk-assessors and communicators.
Competencies?Product Execution Planning
WeWork relies on highly structured Building Information Model (BIM) data for use in design, risk assessment, cost estimation, systems coordination, component fabrication, construction layout, and operation of its Product. Construction Managers are expected to have a working knowledge of building information management techniques, and guide projects through the implementation of the Product Execution Plan (from pre- design thru construction).
Construction Managers are expected to participate in the capture of site conditions though the use of laser scanning, spherical photography, and virtual tour technologies. You will coordinate with an internal team of Reality Capture Specialists, external vendors, and contractors to ensure that conditions are captured on a regular basis (using our internal systems).
Construction Managers are expected to facilitate the digital fabrication of system components (from BIM data) with capable manufacturing partners.
Construction Managers are expected to facilitate the review of project scope with design teams (both internally and externally) to ensure an acceptable level of coordination is achieved before commencement of construction. Analysis includes a thorough understanding of construction documentation, responding to requests for information (RFIs), and reviewing submittals.
Construction Managers are expected to coordinate the delivery of project scope that is directly procured by WeWork (particularly building signage). You will work directly with our Sourcing team to leverage our vendor network, and coordinate delivery of the identified scope.
Construction Managers are expected to participate in the generation of project schedules, whether Gantt chart or model-based 4D sequencing. During course of construction, you will manage the implementation of a Last Planner system for projects to drive schedule, safety, and quality among our trade partners.
Safety & Quality
Construction Managers are expected to perform regular construction site visits and provide assessment of our trade partners to ensure a safe construction site (compliant with any local laws or regulations governing workplace hazards), timely delivery, and quality workmanship. You will provide feedback on market considerations (including material specification and selection) to ensure a high-quality finished product.
Construction Managers are expected to facilitate the use of coordinated Building Information Model data on the construction site. You will collaborate directly with our Reality Capture Specialists to enable their use of a Total Station Theodolite (TST), Rapid Positioning System (RPS), or similar for construction layout of digitally fabricated components.
Construction Managers are expected to leverage Building Information Model data to provide real-time quantity survey feedback to Project Estimators for use in the production of project budgets. You will also participate in the Bidding/Tender process, to provide feedback on market considerations (including construction labor and contractor experience). Construction Managers will evaluate payment authorizations, potential change orders, and additional scope requests throughout course of construction.
Construction Managers are expected to assist in the delivery of a fully-commissioned, substantially complete, and clean WeWork Product to our Community team. You will work closely with an internal team of Logistics Specialists to ensure that a smooth handover is achieved and documented.
Construction Managers are expected to assist in final closeout of completed projects. You will collaborate with Project Managers to ensure receipt of the necessary financial, regulatory, and building utility documentation for use by other departments. During the Closeout period, Construction Managers are also expected to provide support to Community as buildings become fully-operational.
