Seeking a key individual to join the team responsible for developing a huge decommissioned military facility into a cutting-edge research and development campus in Mountain View, CA.  This exciting project features opportunities to create revolutionary facility re-use strategies and work with new applications of construction technology on a massive scale. This position will require the management of two or more projects.  The first project is a major aviation facility abatement and

recoating project and the second project is a development for a bus maintenance facility.


The Project Manager for this position will be responsible for managing two or more projects.  The first project is for the abatement, recoating, and moderate structural upgrades for the eventual re-use of a massive, very unique and historically significant structure.  The work will include lead coating remediation, structural upgrade, and new skin. This is a long duration project that with proper planning and execution can result in a significant cost savings for the client.  The desired candidate for this project will be able to assess current strategies, think outside the box, and work with key team members to push cost effective solutions and outcomes. In addition, given this project’s historical significance the ideal candidate would have some past experience working with the state historic preservation office (SHPO) or coordinating with historic preservation architects.

The second project is for the planning, design, and construction of a bus maintenance facility.  This project will require management from the schematic design phase all the way through construction, which is expected to be complete by end of Q1 2022.  The work includes many shops, mechanical systems, automatic washing facilities, parking surfaces, site utilities, and an administrative space. The desired candidate will have some experience with transportation related facilities and all aspects of building construction.  

The Project Manager will supervise multiple consultants and contractors performing investigation, design development, coordination with multiple on-site agencies and organizations, permitting, construction and commissioning.  

The candidate will be joining a fun, hard-working team of 10 consisting of project managers, a project controls manager, an environmental planner, a project coordinator, and a dedicated construction field representative.  The team has a culture of collaboration and support, therefore team players with a positive, can-do attitude are desired.

The ideal candidate will have the following skills, experience and attributes:

  • 5+ years of steadily increasing professional experience in construction project management.

  • A great team player who brings out the best in teammates and keeps diverse stakeholders working together toward project objectives.
