Pros: satisfaction in seeing the great final product
Cons: work load depends on the market requirements
A typical day would likely start on construction site, doing a walkthrough with a construction manager, reviewing the current progress. After that - proceeding to the office to process invoices for payment; to prepare reports for review and comments; to reply to multitude of business correspondence.
In the past 7 years working within Development group of GWL RA I have most definitely learnt a great deal of skill and 'tricks' of the trade. From the zoning process and applying for SPA with a municipality -- to the RFP/ contract awarding process -- to the construction start -- to records keeping -- to project commissioning and close-out. All the while enjoying the work in the friendly, supportive group of similarly minded people, where we can rely on each other for advice and recommendation in difficult moments.
The hardest part of the job? It is surprisingly also the most enjoyable part of it - coming up with creative solutions to puzzling situations and participating in the implementation of the solutions.
