Aeon has an immediate opening for an Architectural Conservator / Project Manager to join our expanding team. As a Project Manager, the candidate will have an opportunity to help manage the planning, coordination, construction, and quality control of historic-preservation projects. In addition, the PM will have an opportunity to work hands-on at many interesting and cutting edge technical conservation projects.
In this position, the PM must be able to prioritize and efficiently manage multiple assignments. First and foremost, the PM will help manage each projects time, cost, and quality. The PM must understand construction record keeping and reporting processes including the ability to maintain daily reports, draft submittals and RFIs, and draft effective field reports. In addition, the PM must create and maintain a construction schedule and hold progress meetings, and represent Aeon with clients. The PM also must have the ability to directly conduct field work, including: creating mockups, implementing conservation and preservation work, and engaging in field oversight of sub-contractors. The candidate must have the ability to obtain government security badges and E-verify. The PM should be comfortable working on scaffolding, swing stage, ariel lifts, etc. The PM must wear appropriate attire, including safety gear. This job may require physical work, such as: climbing, standing, kneeling, lifting, and aiding subcontractors. Project Managers at Aeon are responsible for multiple projects.
This position would begin as an hourly full-time job for a trial basis of 6 months, but we have sufficient work to extend this to a permanent position if the selected candidate performs well. We may have to work some evenings, nights, and weekends, though most of our work is consistent with contractor hours.
The ideal candidate will have a graduate degree in Historic Preservation with a concentration in architectural conservation and has 3 or more years experience in historic preservation, including a minimum of 1-2 years field experience in preservation construction and familiarity with construction project safety requirements. Extensive experience in the above-described work may, however, be sufficient to replace the degree requirement.
Candidates must submit a letter of interest, resume, references, drawing samples, and writing samples. Please include a detailed description of your technical conservation and construction skills.
