About the Role

Axiom Builders is looking to bring on a Director, Preconstruction to the team to oversee the preconstruction stages of all Bosa Properties and Blue Sky Properties projects from inception to contract. Reporting to the Vice President, the successful candidate will be focused on four major areas:

What you Bring

You are a forward-thinking professional that understands construction from all angles - estimation, project management, and client service.

You value a diverse team, and you know how to build on the strengths of others to get to the finish line.

  • At least eight (8) years of construction experience in either 1) estimating and project management, or 2) preconstruction, with a portfolio of residential or mixed-use projects;
  • Ability to collaborate effectively and leverage the diverse skillsets of the organization to reach the end goal for the client;
  • Certificate, diploma, or degree in Construction Management, Building Technology, Construction Technology, or a related field;

  • Strong communication and relationship-building skills - ability to clearly communicate with owners, consultants, and trade partners.
