The University of Colorado at Boulder (CU-Boulder) is beginning the design phase for a new campus facility, the Alliance for Technology, Learning and Society (ATLAS), a center for multidisciplinary curricula, learning, research, and outreach involving information and communication technology. The ATLAS Center is a 65,600 gross square foot new building on campus with a total project cost of over $29 million. A professional Program and Construction Coordinator (PCC) is solicited as a representative of ATLAS to assist in the delivery of this project from the present phase through occupancy. This is anticipated to be a half-time position.
Qualified applicants will be determined as those candidates that can meet the following criteria that will be used for screening and interviewing applicants. A Screening Committee consisting of ATLAS and other University interests will use the following criteria for final selection.
Recent, direct experience with institutional or corporate projects of a similar scope and budget;
Capability to work in a complex diverse environment;
Open to understanding project and institutional goals; and
Demonstrated ability to coordinate and manage projects of a similar nature.
Primary responsibilities as the ATLAS representative include:
Liaison between the director of the ATLAS, the ATLAS Advisory Board, the project team, and eventually -- the general contractor;
Oversight of the design process, through the generation of bid documents, including the direction of value engineering;
Review of all design and construction documents and drawings throughout the course of the project;
