Job Description:

Construction Innovations is seeking an analytical and detail-oriented individual with an eye for accuracy to serve as Chief Estimator. The Chief Estimator is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Estimating team, including oversight of the estimating processes, methodologies and technologies, and training team members in the use of estimating tools and analytics. The ideal candidate will have the ability to perform detailed analyses of historical cost data, and use that data along with feedback from stakeholders to ensure the assemblies used for estimating contain accurate material and labor assumptions. Qualifications Qualification Must have: -

  • 8+ years' experience in estimating and/or field experience with an electrical, construction or consulting company
  • 5 years' experience managing direct reports
  • Renewable energy, substation, transmission and distribution estimating experience is highly preferred
  • Deep understanding of estimating techniques and cost control and profit/loss principles.
  • Understanding of electrical installation methods, National Electrical Code (NEC) and National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) for renewable, commercial, industrial and/or utility construction
  • Advanced experience using estimating software programs such as AccuBid, including creation, analysis and management of estimating assemblies
  • Digital takeoff experience using LiveCount or equivalent WORK ENVIRONMENT: The Chief Estimator spends most of their time in an office environment, but may also spend time on project sites or at the company's manufacturing plant. The office is an open and collaborative space where you will work both independently and with the team. When on-site, you will be in a construction environment, which may be in fairly remote rural locations, and where you may encounter extreme weather conditions. When at the plant, you will be in a more traditional manufacturing environment, with higher noise levels and frequent movement of people and equipment. PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS: -
    • Regularly sit, stand, and walk for long and short distances.
    • Required to hear with or without correction to be able to interpret and receive information and directions.
    • Regularly required to communicate: verbal and written, in order to describe and explain detailed, important, and accurate instructions.
    • Occasionally lift and/or move material up to 25lbs.
    • Occasionally stoop, kneel, or crouch.
    • Noise level is usually moderate. Responsibilities Include but are not limited to:
      • Directly supervise Estimators and Senior Estimators, assigning and coordinating their scopes of work for each project.
      • Oversee team member recruitment, on-boarding, employee engagement and issue resolution.
      • Identify skill gaps and continuous education needs, and facilitate training as needed for team members.
      • Oversee the creation, implementation and maintenance of departmental processes and performance metrics to meet the company's quality objectives.
      • Collaborate with and support Preconstruction Managers' design and pricing strategies.
      • Verify accuracy of specifications, estimating scopes and pricing prepared by estimating staff.
      • Monitor and communicate market data regarding material cost trends that could affect current and future project costs.
      • Support the development of conceptual design estimates for projects using past experience and historical data when preliminary design information is incomplete and/or limited.
      • Track and analyze historic cost data and use market data to forecast future material costs, and apply to current estimates.
      • Collaborate with Supply Chain to solicit subcontractor and/or supplier information, quotes and pricing, when needed.
      • Analyze electrical drawings to evaluate alternate means and methods to determine the most optimized and economical option.
      • Obtain and/or develop labor units for both manufacturing and installation of products to ensure accuracy of these units within the estimating databases.
      • Lead and facilitate value engineering sessions with the project team and design team.
