For the last several years I have been working in the Yates Heavy division encompassing highway, bridges, docks, and plant concrete projects. I previously worked on large campus projects, state and federal prisons, and airports. I have experience working as a claims scheduler preparing time-impact and but-for analysis both as a contractor’s and owner’s representative. Working for the construction manager on federal prisons I prepared weekly and monthly reports supporting schedule based progress payments from cost loaded schedules. In the role of construction manager scheduler I enforced specified schedule requirements and milestones. I have also prepared bid and sales schedules as well as software implementation and engineering schedules. I have a good understanding of risk management and earned value methodology. I learned the basics of schedule computations including CPM in courses I took at University of Houston. I have managed up to 38 engineering project schedules.
I also have advanced knowledge of P6 in respect to both technical details and scheduling. I have not used MS Project since version 1 except for incoming and outgoing conversion of files.
I have extensive experience with drawings, estimates, BIM models, specifications and proposals. Scope control is an important aspect of scheduling in my opinion and I have striven to make sure the scheduled work is fully represented in ways that it can be easily reported.
I am an expert user of Excel and a competent user of other MS Office products. I am also expert in the use of Crystal reports and various databases including SQLITE and MYSQL.
My BA is with a double major in history and English literature and I have also done a limited amount of technical writing. I was active in student publications at Del Mar College and Texas A&I Corpus Christi.
I studied the PMI materials including the PMBOK but did not take the PMP exam.
I did complete the AGC BIM training but still need to pass the exam.
