Picture yourself building the open spaces around your community; playgrounds, spray parks, boulevards, golf courses, civic parks, etc. Places where we live and play, spaces where your project management experience will make an impact.
What if you could start your day, coffee in hand arriving at the new Ice District? Go up the elevator to your new office in the Edmonton Tower. Your day will start with a review of tender documents as you get set to put tenders to market. Fast forward a few hours, now review invoices from various contractors. After lunch, overlooking Rogers Place, head out to site for some community engagement followed by multitasking with status followups with various projects across the city. That’s Day 1, the next 11 months is up to you.
