Our job responsibilities cover a wide array of tasks. One of our core responsibilities is to establish and manage our clients’ budgets.

Skills Required

Candidates must have an understanding of the design and construction process and be comfortable reading construction drawings. Candidates must have strong people skills as they will be expected to manage teams of professional consultants, contractors, and third-party vendors required to design and construct projects.

While Becker & Frondorf trains our staff to understand the unique role of the Owner’s Representatives, candidates must have a range of other skills.  They must have exceptional organization skills and a strong attention to detail.  They must be proactive and capable of taking independent initiative.  They must have strong communication skills, and be comfortable with leading a collaborative process. They must have strong writing skills and be familiar with Excel. Most importantly—strong client skills are a must.
