Day in the life of
Construction Project Manager – Keith Melanson
I am the owner and Project Manager at RenosGroup, a renovation company with over 35 years of experience. It is a family-owned and operated renovation team that is dedicated to making your house feel like home. Specializing in residential renovations, mobility renovations, and hand-holding the nervous homeowner, they cater to you and your every need.
My day consists of handling email leads, meeting with potential clients at job sites, taking accurate measurements, creating detailed quotes, meet with clients again to explain/review their quotes. Visit each job site every day or two to review projects with our contractors and clients. Pick up supplies/materials/fixtures and deliver to job sites.
The task that takes up the most of my time is creating detailed, professional-looking quotes. This is especially important for us to do because it’s the perfect opportunity for us to close the deal with our potential customers. We focus on leaving a good impression, and without a well-structured and professional quote, it can really have a hit.
Pros: Flexible working hours and income potential. I feel that this has helped attract and retain high-performing employees.
Cons: Quotes that do not lead to a sale and trying to find qualified contractors with decent customer service skills as well.
