  • Oversee weekly assembly of materials at the warehouse and shop organization.
Ongoing Construction Support:
  • Create project- and task-specific documentation to support construction staff.

Who you are:
  • Excellent computer skills with proficiency in REVIT, AutoCAD MEP, and MS Office.
  • Strong technical problem-solving abilities and familiarity with MEP systems and constructability.
  • Experience with BIM documentation in a construction-execution environment, including cloud-base coordination (i.e., BIM 360/Collaborate).
  • Ability to troubleshoot and work around known modeling program 'glitches' or malfunctions.
  • Familiarity with documentation standards and best practices for modeling and documentation creation.
