Estimator/Project Manager Who Knows They're Capable of Doing More


Listing Date: 7/5/2018 12:00:00 AM

Job Type:

Full Time


Midwest Foundation provides a range of turnkey marine construction, rehabilitation, design and specialty services on, under and above the water. From the smallest pile-driving contract to extensive, multi-million dollar bridge construction projects, we’re a marine contractor that’s totally committed to safe and quality workmanship, innovative marine engineering solutions, along with efficiency and integrity, every step of the way.

We self-perform all of our work - whether that's building locks and dams, terminals, dredging, bridges, docks or pilings and foundations, making this a tremendous opportunity for an Estimator, a Project Manager or better yet - both. In your new role, you'll be challenged to learn new systems and be part of a team devoted to getting the job done right - on time and on budget.

You'll manage multiple projects and be tasked with bidding, scheduling, estimating and supervising them from concept through completion. It's a fast paced, but rewarding job that comes with the satisfaction of knowing that the work we do is helping to build communities - one project at a time. And the majority of our top management took exactly the same route to get there.


Your Responsibilities and Duties:

  • Determine project requirements and prepare accurate cost estimates
  • Manage construction of projects as per bid documents
  • Manage costs of construction
  • Read and understand plans and specifications
  • Perform quantity take-offs from plans and/or field visits
  • Develop and maintain positive relations with internal and external customers
  • Support field personnel during construction of work
  • Create and send invoices/change orders
  • Schedule and coordinate subcontractors and suppliers during construction
  • Perform miscellaneous administrative duties and other tasks as assigned

Skill Requirements


  • Have prior experience working as an Estimator or Project Manager
  • Have a Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Construction Management, Business or a related field
  • Are experienced in working with Microsoft Office, including Outlook, Word and Excel



Medical, dental, and vision coverage, 401k matching, and vacation and sick leave.

Midwest Foundation is committed to having a high level team from our Front Desk to our Executive Team. All employees in all office positions go through extensive pre-hire testing and an intensive interview process. We are an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and are committed to maintaining a drug free workplace.
