: Associate Project Managers are considered entry-level Project Managers with much the same responsibilities. Associate Project Managers may be assigned tasks to assist Project Managers in order to gain the experience required to become a Project Manager. Associate Project Managers are responsible for bringing projects online on time, within budget, and with a high level of customer satisfaction. This includes scheduling and coordinating all construction resources, internal and external, necessary for project execution and financial management of the project. Our internal resources include application engineers, programmers, Associate Project Managers, and field engineers. Our external resources include product procurement from our vendors and negotiating and managing our electrical subcontractors. Financial management includes billings, change orders, cash flow, estimate at completion, and revenue forecasting.PRIMARY DUTIES, RESPONSIBILITIES, and ACCOUNTABILITIES

- Proactively pursue ways to beat the budget and/or minimize cost overruns.
PROJECT PLANNING AND SCHEDULING
- Know the project schedule and proactively drive the job. Document all items/trades that delay our work and work with GC to remove such obstacles.
