The Assistant Project Manager supports and assists Senior Project Managers on large design and construction projects and, with supervision, manages small projects independently. The Assistant Project Manager's duties, in coordination with the Senior Project Manager, include supporting efforts required to establish project scope and program, through preliminary design and working drawing phases, and then ensuring implementation throughout construction and occupancy. This involves working closely with campus clients and other authorizing departments, retaining, coordinating, and, for small projects, directly managing design professionals (architects, engineers and specialist consultants), general contractors and subcontractors, and construction inspectors; coordinating and overseeing project progress, budget, cost and quality; coordinating efforts required to and resolving problems that arise; coordinating with state regulatory agencies to ensure compliance and safety; and proactively communicating, when assigned, project details including recommendations and solutions to issues which may arise to campus clients and decision makers.

For large projects, the individual acts under the direction of a Senior Project Manager in the day to day fulfillment of assigned tasks receiving guidance as needed and incorporating such into an approach which considers a broad framework and consistent approach for the campus project portfolio being managed by Physical Planning, Development & Operations.
