  • Coordinate HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection requirements with other disciplines, working with site teams to ensure designs align with construction standards and local codes;
  • Conduct site visits to assess work quality and track critical items.

  • Proficient with REVIT, AutoCAD, MS Office suite, Bluebeam, and Revizto with experience in the coordination process and 3D modeling programs;
  • Strong communication skills with the confidence and ability to communicate with both internal and external stakeholders at all levels.
