Larissa’s Answer

I manage the financial cycle of numerous projects from procurement, operations to final account. Regular monthly reporting to show your projections of opportunities and loss. Working as a team to offset any unrecoverable loss either by negotiations, value engineering or both. This is the core goal of any commercial role as well as being numerical you have to understand the construction methods and operation constraints. You have to have a decent knowledge of what you’re building, know how to read drawings well and know when and who to ask questions.

Juan’s Answer

I help with policy and procedures. I help audit and investigations. You need experience and certification in your chosen craft. You can start as a laborer doing mostly water, clean up, set up and such, then work your way up to a helper. A helper in a craft has basic skills that help. For example if you want to be a carpenter helper, knowing how to read a measuring tape, use a hammer, saw, etc will help. If you want to be a structural fitter/steel worker helper, knowing how to use a measuring tape, grinders, metal cutting torch, etc will help there.

On-site I'm the first last word in the electrical installation process. I have to treat it as if it were mine. I'm charged with millions of dollars. And it's my responsibility to ensure its is spent diligently and frugally. I'm also charged with the training, advancement, and discipline of apprentice all the way to foreman. I'm also charged with the safety of not only my men but all construction workers as electrical safety is critical to all.
