–Plaza Construction Recruited Columbia University Graduates For Construction Management Positions–
NEW YORK, August 2, 2016 – Current employment trends project a continued shortage of skilled labor in the construction industry, and included among those shortages are the need for competent managers and engineers. Plaza Construction, one of the nation’s leading constructions firms headquartered in New York City, has been hiring assistant project managers who were recent graduates of Columbia University’s Master of Science programs in civil engineering, construction engineering and management. Over the last two years, Plaza has hired seven assistant project managers from Columbia University, five of which have been females.
“An assistant project manager can earn a good salary to start with the potential to earn much more and progress through our mentoring and training programs,” says Richard Wood, president and CEO of Plaza Construction. “We are finding that female and male applicants have much the same aptitude for handling complex building details and working as a team to solve problems and communicate effectively with workers, owners and senior management. The field is now open to females, as well as males, and they are recognizing the career opportunities available in this industry.”
“As college graduates are finding it difficult to find jobs that pay well, have good benefits, job security, and allow them to pay off their college debt, the construction management field is one that should not be overlooked,” adds Amy Shapiro, Plaza’s Executive Director of Human Resources. “Many of our new hires started as interns from their graduate programs, particularly from Columbia University, so they found full-time placement easily.”
Plaza Construction is one of the nation’s leading construction management and general contracting companies. Since 1986, the firm has played a very relevant role in building corporate headquarters, commercial properties, healthcare centers, universities, infrastructure, transportation facilities, museums, retail spaces, hospitality, and residential buildings with such prestigious projects as 55 Water Street, MTA Fulton Street Transit Center, Brooklyn Navy Yard, 11 Times Square, and W Hotel South Beach, among others. Since its incorporation in 1986, the firm has grown from a regional organization to a multi-faceted, national presence in the industry with headquarters in New York and regional offices in Miami and Washington DC. China State Construction Engineering Corp., China’s largest construction company, has made a significant investment in Plaza Construction through its US subsidiary, China Construction America. The China investment marks dynamic growth opportunities for Plaza Construction with greater financial strength and bonding capabilities.
