Always striving to create inspiring and functional learning environments, Rocketship’s Real Estate Development Team leads all new campus development projects across the different regions in which we operate. This is a full-time, exempt position reporting to the Associate Director of Real Estate (ADRE). As part of Rocketship’s Real Estate Team, the Real Estate Project Manager will be leading and/or supporting project teams through design development and construction of new elementary charter schools.
The Real Estate Project Manager will participate in weekly design and construction project meetings with the ADRE, the Architect, General Contractors, and Engineers, assisting the ADRE with design and schedule decisions. Using and improving upon the existing processes, the Real Estate Project Manager will manage the project budget, all phases of the project schedule from design to entitlements & permitting to construction and finally through school opening. The Project Manager will participate in the review of new campus design plans with internal team members, incorporating their suggestions when appropriate.
Part of Rocketship’s growth strategy also involves the opening of temporary campuses while permanent full scale campuses are being developed. The Real Estate Project Manager will assist with any facility improvements and/or permitting as necessary for these spaces as well.
For every school the Real Estate Team builds, we seek out opportunities for positive social, environmental and educational impact. Inside our classrooms we are intently focused on building a positive work environment for our staff and fostering the best learning experience for our students. On a more macro-scale, we strive to create long-term value for the community, to build sustainably and push the envelope in educational design, all within our budgeting and scheduling constraints.
