Under the direction and supervision of the Director of Design & Construction BCH-O, the Project Manager (PM) will be accountable to the Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland to provide projects that are on schedule, within budget, high quality, cost-effective, and appropriate to the client's needs. There are 2 open positions for Project Managers.
The PM organizes, plans, and controls the design and construction effort. This may involve recommending professional design staff; coordinating the activities of clients, design professionals (architects, engineers, etc.), contractors, inspectors, and others associated with the project; monitoring project progress, cost, and quality; resolving problems that arise in the project; working with state agency officials to ensure compliance and safety. The PM has first-line responsibility to communicate effectively with project stakeholders regarding program, budget, schedule, and construction impact. PM provides support to the annual Capital Budget development process.
The PM is accountable for delivering capital construction projects on schedule and within the project budget. Simultaneously manage multiple projects of various sizes in a challenging environment. Lead the project team through all the phases of the project, from A/E selection, conceptual design, Design Development, CD's, permitting, bid, construction occupancy, and warranty. Coordinate all project activities with the operations of the Medical Center and Campus stakeholders.
The PM leads the developmental stage of capital projects to assure that project scope, schedule and phasing are adequately defined. Use BCH-O project benchmarks and/or work with the design professionals to create the preliminary project budget and schedule.
The PM defines working criteria for a proposed project, determining the hazardous materials, infection control, phasing of work, and fire and life safety requirements that are necessary. Estimate the design review efforts for a project to assure that the quality of the construction documents is sufficient to minimize the risk of cost overruns during construction.
The PM coordinates the efforts of the Inspector of Record, state agencies (e.g., OSHPD), the contractor and University representatives to ensure code compliance and quality of work, and a constructive relationship with the regulators. Prepare and verify that all required documentation is completed prior to occupancy or authorized approval of a project.
With the support of the BCH-O relocation, furniture, equipment, and IT coordinators, and in cooperation with other support units, assure that all aspects of the project are addressed in a timely manner.
