Construction Director – Contract Position

Recruited by a coastal and marine engineering company to develop a construction management division within their reputable and well-established company. Initial projects consisted of two offshore private island destinations for a Florida based cruise ship company. The first project was in Haiti and the second was a project in the Bahamas. The Haiti project, valued at $14 million, during which we performed as construction managers, was completed in late 2000.  Based upon our success in Haiti, the client contracted us to perform as design-builder for the Bahamas project, valued at $16 million.  Both projects included full water, drainage and sanitary utility infrastructure, upland facilities including resort type dining and bar structures, island staff accommodations and certain marine and civil elements.

 

Responsibilities began at the initial project programming and design phase and continued through to completion and turnover of the project.  Duties included managing the entire construction division staff including field staff.
