Day in the life of
Construction Project Manager – Tony Dinnocenzo
My typical day revolves around current project team check-ins and project progress. It involves connecting with clients on current bid opportunities and future bid events and technical work such as project invoicing, subcontracts, purchase orders, and vendor invoicing approvals. I check in with my boss to provide a daily update.
Weekly, typical functions include owner/client meetings, business development meetings, specific gas infrastructure meetings, mentoring committee meetings, and various safety meetings both internally with the company and externally with clients.
Monthly, I work on project projections and status reviews with senior leadership and conduct project-specific site visits.
Pros: The pros of my job are my interactions with clients and creating and maintaining relationships. In addition, seeing the growth of my direct reports is very gratifying.
Cons: The cons of my job are the tough conversations that are required and my removed involvement in the technical, day-to-day activities I went to school for.
