We have been hired by a fully integrated energy company that develops, constructs, owns and operates renewable energy projects and transmission assets to find a Senior Pre-Construction Manager that can successfully manage and oversee all the Pre-Construction aspects of Utility-Scale Wind and Solar renewable energy, high-voltage transmission line and energy storage projects across North America.

Key Responsibilities

  • Complete 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.

  • Manage and Develop Request for Proposal’s (RFP’s) that will be issued to potential contractors for the competitive bidding process.

  • Engage in close coordination and constant communication with the development, construction and operations teams located across North America

  • Work in teams with environmental, resource analysis, procurement, initiation and transmission groups.

  • 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.  

  • Develop construction project cashflows and milestone completion dates

  • 5 years of progressive experience as a Pre-Construction Manager in the renewable power industry with significant wind/solar/transmission experience at the pre-construction phase.

  • 10 years or more work experience since graduation in a related field (Construction planning; pre-construction; Construction PM)

  • 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

  • Proficient in typical software applications, including Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Microsoft Project.  

  • Must be willing and capable of traveling across North America as the role requires.

  • Experience specifically in solar project development, pre-construction and/or construction.

  • Direct experience with project and engineering management for wind/solar/ transmission

  • Experience in medium voltage and high voltage work. This includes MV collections systems, substations, switchyards, and transmission lines.

  • Prior site and estimating experience are advantageous.

  • Relevant and specific software experience, such as Primivera or estimating software (e.g. CostOS).
