Project Superintendents plan, direct, and coordinate a wide variety of construction projects. They may oversee an entire project or just part of one. They must be available—often 24 hours a day—to deal with delays, bad weather, or emergencies at the jobsite. They schedule and coordinate all construction processes, including the selection, hiring, and oversight of specialty trade contractors and labor. The superintendent coordinates and supervises the construction process through final construction, making sure that the project gets done on time and within budget. They often work with owners, engineers, architects, and others who are involved in the construction process.

Project Superintendents determine the best way to get materials to the construction site and the most cost-effective plan and schedule for completing the project. They divide all required construction site activities into logical steps, budgeting the time required to meet established deadlines. This may require sophisticated estimating and scheduling techniques and use of computers with specialized software.

Project Superintendents assist with the selection and coordinate trade contractors to complete specific pieces of the project. They determine the labor requirements and, in some cases, supervise or monitor the hiring and dismissal of workers. They oversee the performance of all trade contractors and are responsible for ensuring that all work is completed on schedule.

Project Superintendents direct and monitor the progress of construction activities. They oversee the delivery and use of materials, tools, and equipment; worker productivity and safety; and the quality of construction. They are responsible for obtaining all necessary permits and licenses and, direct or monitor compliance with building and safety codes, other regulations, and requirements.
