TGRC is partnering with an independent, fully integrated energy company that develops, constructs, owns and operates renewable energy projects and transmission assets across North America, Japan, and parts of Latin America.


The Senior Pre-Construction Manager will be responsible for managing and overseeing all the Pre-Construction aspects of Utility-Scale wind, solar, high-voltage transmission lines and energy storage projects. This will include completing cost analysis and budgetary estimates for the engineering, procurement and construction of the facilities in North America as well as managing the preliminary engineering for the projects.



-Provide Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) cost estimates, commercial and technical due diligence and support of solar, wind, transmission and energy storage projects to the development team during development/pre-construction phase.

-Review developer construction related documents for completeness and compliance with utility interconnect agreements, power purchase agreements, land lease agreements, environmental permits, and ensure good industry practice.

-Coordinate with development team to understand the geotechnical, civil, electrical, and major equipment supplier specifications for project estimates and RFP’s.

-Manage preliminary engineering to support preconstruction development and contractor section phase

-Responsible for leading the RFP process, in conjunction with the Capital Procurement Manager, with qualified contractors and vendors so bids can be accurately evaluated.

-Responsible for evaluating thorough comparison metrics to determine most commercially and technically responsible bidders. Must ensure RFP’s establish basis of scope and pricing from contractor/supplier.

-Knowledge of basic engineering concepts associated with renewable energy facilities (geotechnical, civil, structural, electrical).

-Knowledge in engineering and cost estimating of utility-scale energy storage projects

-Ability to work within a cost analysis database that allows for evaluation of past project build costs to effectively estimate future build costs in a targeted market.

-Ability to simultaneously prioritize and resolve multiple issues on multiple projects under demanding schedule constraints.

-Knowledge of trending constructability costs in the wind and solar market
