Professional Experience

Intelligent, resourceful and able to provide both initiative and organization to the work environment. Quick to learn new concepts, ideas and computer programs due to extended experience on both Mac’ and PC platforms.

As a contributing member of the Quantity Surveying Team I assessed Pre-bid meetings and evaluated walk throughs. I was also involved bidding and construction of LEED projects for City of Austin and AISD. Oversaw bidding, submittals and installation for the technical aspects of projects such as, access control, data, networking and communication.

Excellent communication skills honed through the preparation, compilation, management and coordination of project communication between the Architect, Owner, subcontractors, suppliers, local authorities and Superintendent.

Administered project contracts, submittals, Change Orders and RFIs, logging, evaluating, processing to the Architect contacting subcontractors and suppliers to maintain compliance. Through meticulous observation of plans and specifications I generated RFIs, Change Proposals and Change Orders. I analyzed subcontractor proposals for Change Proposals to verify accuracy and to query abnormal costs before submitting to the Architect. Generated credits, in some cases substantial, to Owners through plan, specification and submittal review.

Designed or redesigned details for the Architect’s approval due to unforeseen circumstances or construction document omission to facilitate construction progress. Managed construction site meetings involving the Architect, Owner, Superintendent, generating agendas, meeting minutes and action paths. Moderated pre-construction meetings for various phases of the construction process for individual trades per specification.

Conducted regular site visits to inspect the Work, materials, scheduling and finally Punch List items. Coordinated the collection and collation of warranties and Close Out items keeping logs of materials and specified O&M manuals and specified texts.
