Summary of Job Responsibilities:

The Project Superintendent is the company’s representative with the responsibility and authority for daily coordination and direction of the project so that it is safe, within budget, on schedule, meets the company’s quality standards, and meets the customer’s satisfaction. To accomplish this, you must conceptualize a plan to construct the project and ensure that the daily and weekly activities are consistent with this plan.
