What is your goal?
As Construction Coordinator, you simplify and enhance the customer experience by carrying out construction process steps from start to finish, attending to details large and small. You enjoy sketching Hybrid Fiber Coaxial (HFC) installation plans for the design team to produce and drawing up line extension layouts. You're also comfortable preparing system maps and/or print packages for authorized contractors. When projects are completed, update as-built maps with system changes per company design specifications.
What is the role?
With guidance, oversee small-scale residential HFC construction projects, including permitting and make-ready processes. Tasks will include validating plan designs based on company records and gathering relevant information regarding the project's scope. Being familiar with physical construction prints and network maps, you can collaborate with engineers and developers to perform site surveys of proposed projects for outside plant design. On the financial side, you're experienced at making cost estimates and ordering needed materials. Once the project is approved, ensure funding, materials, permits, and contractors are assigned to it, along with in-house teams and contract resources for building, repairing and maintaining the HFC plant. Verify plans meet both customer and company expectations and communicate them with your Project Manager or designated supervisor. Construction will be based on the materials you order.
Upon completion of the construction project, assess the work performed using quality control inspections in accordance with Technical Quality Assurance (TQA) standards. You will be responsible for submitting all as-builts for completed projects to the design team and managing the financial aspects of construction for the life of the project as well as compliance in regards to footage, passings and addresses.

• High, outdoor places (for example, telephone poles and roofs) in all weather conditions, possibly for extended periods of time.
