Mentor Position for Senior Construction / Project Manager

Looking for A Senior Construction / Project Manager Mentor (Part Time)

The Windmill Development Group is a visionary real estate company dedicated to transforming conventional development practice using the triple bottom line approach of people+planet+prosperity. Based in Ottawa and Toronto Windmill is active in community scale and urban infill projects in Ontario.

Windmill is currently developing a mixed-use building in the Queen West area of Toronto in joint venture with another developer.   The project is an innovative 10 storey mixed-use building with 2 stories of  commercial space (retail and office) and 8 stories of residential condominiums above with 74 units. The rezoning is complete, the residential component has been 100% sold and the design is in the working drawing stage.  Construction is expected to begin in October of this year.  A constructor (construction manager) has been selected and a Class B/C budget has been prepared.

We are looking for the right person to provide a strategic leadership role as a mentor to our Project Manager, who will be responsible for running the project on a day-to-day basis for the owners group.   Our Project Manager is a skilled and responsible professional with previous experience on a complex residential project, who would benefit from a more senior professional providing advice and strategic direction.

We are seeking a senior construction professional with at least 10 years high-rise residential experience to:

  1. participate in finalizing contract documents and reviewing drawings for gaps and coordination issues
  1. participate in strategic discussions related to key early decisions in the construction process
  1.  be available as  “mentor” to provide oversight of the Project Manager throughout the construction process

This is a part-time contract position.   It is anticipated that the mentor role will involve a time commitment of approximately 12-15  hours per month although more time would be required during the early stage for the initial technical review.

This position provides an opportunity for a senior (or retired) construction professional to work on a part-time basis,  to share the experience he/she has gained in the industry with a strong and committed younger team and to participate in a “city building” project that is seeking to provide an innovative solution to mixed use sustainable design in Toronto.
