Construction Superintendent Job Overview

A construction superintendent plays an essential role in any significant construction project. The construction superintendent works closely with a construction project manager to make sure that the project stays on time and on budget. On any given day, a construction superintendent may carry out any of the following tasks:

  • Talk to construction workers and subcontractors, including carpenters, electricians, and others, to ensure that the project moves forward smoothly
  • Keep a close eye on the construction work and enforce safety standards and protocol
  • Create and adjust schedules to work around unexpected obstacles such as inclement weather or other setbacks
  • Make sure that the work being done is in line with local building codes

Some major construction projects have more than one construction superintendent. The superintendents are often organized into tiers and must closely communicate with one another about their respective aspects of the project.

Construction Superintendent Job Education Requirements

Experience is the most important education for construction superintendents. Construction companies want people on the site who are familiar with the process of building from beginning to end. Experienced construction superintendents may not need any formal education beyond a high school diploma.

It is becoming more common, however, for companies to demand that their construction superintendents have an education that goes beyond the basics. Job candidates who have a bachelor’s degree in construction science, architecture, construction management, or engineering have a competitive edge when it comes to securing employment.

Construction Superintendent Job Market

Job growth in the realm of construction is likely to be faster than the average for all occupations as the economy continues to recover and people flock to large cities. The best job prospects are in cities with rapidly growing populations, where there is a need for more housing. The fastest growing cities in the United States include San Marcos, Texas; South Jordan, Utah; Goodyear, Arizona; and Gaithersburg, Maryland. Seattle, Houston, and Miami are also all experiencing significant growth. The construction industry occasionally experiences fluctuating job availability, so even the most reliable construction superintendents may find uncertain job prospects from time to time.

Construction Superintendent Job Salary Information

Hardworking construction superintendents often earn a comfortable living. The median annual wage for construction managers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, is just over $80,000. Of course, the pay depends greatly on a candidate’s experience level and the scope of the project that he or she is working on.
