Director Of Construction Jobs

Director Of Construction Overview


A Director of Construction takes on several roles in one day, including employee organization to complete a specific project and coordinating with other directors on the same job site. Also known as first-line supervisors, these directors must manage people, permits and time schedules to stay on budget. They aren't in charge of an entire job site like a construction manager, but work on a particular part. For example, a director of construction may work solely on a commercial building's plumbing, but must coordinate with electrical directors to avoid spacing issues.

Director Of Construction Education Requirements


Unlike executive construction positions, a Director of Construction doesn't need a four-year degree. Many individuals actually progress through the construction ranks to be promoted to director. They often have many years of experience in their particular field, such as concrete contracting or masonry. However, competitive markets have made a two-year degree or a trade certificate very valuable to potential director candidates. They can major in construction management or business, for instance, to have a better grasp of directing techniques. Individuals must be comfortable delegating tasks, and an education expands the mind to work more productively.

Director Of Construction Job Market


The projected growth between 2012 and 2022 is 23 percent. This huge jump in job opportunities gives general construction workers a goal to attain. While they gain critical on-the-job skills, they can go to school at night or on weekends. Individuals can branch out into other similar jobs, such as Construction Equipment Managers or Construction Project Managers. The market is gaining unique specialty areas as new technology emerges for both commercial and residential buildings. Solar and geothermal energy are just two areas that are lacking in expert Director of Construction positions. The construction industry is slowly gaining speed in a struggling economy, requiring more directors than ever before for a productive workforce.

Director Of Construction Salary


These supervisors make a median salary of about $60,000, but it can be as low as $37,000 when first starting out. Top earners make around $95,000 with extensive experience and schooling.
