REF; Project Manager Opportunity

Location Ft Lauderdale

Dear: Hiring Manager

As accomplished Construction Project Manager with extensive Heavy Civil

Highway & Bridge construction experience. I was very interested and excited

to learn about your Project Manager opening. I offer 15 years of hands on

construction project management experience working on broad range of FDOT

heavy civil and complex environmental construction projects ranging from 10

million to 55 million dollars. Established ability to manage multi-

discipline construction projects involving heavy civil DOT highway

infrastructure, structural concrete, complex earthwork

excavations/placement, concrete pilings, sheet pilings, bridge

substructure, and bridge super structure including proficiency with

electrical & mechanical construction elements. As project manager,

successfully managed numerous complex civil highway infrastructure projects

under the following governmental standards:

Florida Department of Transportation.

US Army Corps of Engineers.

Federal Highway Administration

Environmental Protection Agency.

Home Land Security/ Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Consistently, recognized for outstanding performance by supervisors and

peers as well as clients providing overall project management, contract

administrative direction of large projects and/or several small projects.

My construction experience is highly recognized by State, Federal and local

governmental agencies with immeasurable recommendations. Successfully

managed projects performance including project costs, project schedule, and

quality by establishing proactive lines of communications with in house

staff, client's engineers, senior management, and governmental permitting

agencies. Seasoned in managing the technical and financial aspects of

project contracts on time and budget as well as successful experience of

subcontract negotiations and subcontractor management.

In February 2010, regretfully, I experienced lay-off as result of economic

corporate restructuring and workforce reduction, my position was

eliminated. Since then, I have remained active in my project management

education and currently taking on line computer courses in business ethics,

and refresher course in construction contract law.

Given the opportunity and privilege to employ my professional experience

and DOT knowledge, I am confident that my ongoing education combined with

my successful experience in the construction management field will be an

asset for your company and benefit your organization. If you agree that my

skills and experience would benefit your operation, please contact me at

(850) ***-**** or email to arrange an interview.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration, and I look forward to

speaking with you.
