Job Description for Construction Project Assistant

The construction project assistant develops schedules for particular projects being performed by their company. This person does not work on the labor end of construction, but is one of the planners of the project. The construction project assistant communicates with clients regularly, responding to inquiries and answering questions. Additionally, the assistant manages documents such as subcontractor requisitions, vendor invoices, and project activities. Much of the assistant's work is performed inside an office, but occasionally this worker meets with clients outside of their office. Sometimes, the construction project assistant travels to the construction work site to check on the progress of projects, since reporting and presenting progress reports is also his or her duty.
