++ Planning and managing project and schedules

++ Monitoring team hours and ensuring projects are completed on budget

++ Mentoring internal Designers and Technicians

++ Attending site visits to monitor compliance with contract documents

++ Participating in tender meetings

++ Working within clients’ construction management processes

++ Reviewing shop drawings, samples, and coordinating details with fabricators

++ Issuing site instructions, change orders, addendum, and deficiency lists

Key Qualifications:

You have seen several projects from concept to completion and performed in a project manager role for at least 5-years for interior design projects greater than 50,000sm.

Good to have:

++ Experience managing projects in other countries

++ Fluent in both Mandarin and English

++ Certification in Project Management

Key Leadership Skills:

You have successfully managed a studio of 10+ designers through multiple projects of various scales on time, on budget, and can ensure that everyone, internally and externally, is extremely proud of the accomplishment.

Your next step:

We want to hear from you if even to say hi or ask us questions about this position. If you want to apply, send your résumé and a few projects that you are the most excited to share to
